The Best Beauty Looks from This Year’s Oscar Nominees: Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and More

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Were you surprised by the 2013 Oscar nominations? Save for a few upsets (how is Ben Affleck not nominated for Best Director?), I was pretty pleased with this list, especially since a handful of my beauty muses are in the mix. To celebrate this year’s leading ladies, here’s a roundup of their best red carpet looks of all time.

Jennifer Lawrence—Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook: I still dream about the stunning gold lame Prabal Gurung gown that Jennifer wore to the Hunger Games L.A. premiere last March. The smoky eyes, nude/pink lips and messy updo complement the 21-year-old star’s edgy look well.

Jessica Chastain—Best Actress for Zero Dark Thirty: I don’t know how Jessica is going to top last year’s Oscar look. I love that she kept her makeup simple here to really let that regal Alexander McQueen gown shine. Her half-updo and face-framing ringlets add the perfect touch of romance.

Naomi Watts—Best Actress for The Impossible: Wearing a feather-embroidered Marchesa gown to the Cannes Films Festival in the French Riviera is just too fabulous for words. Add to that Naomi’s subtle finger-wave ‘do paired with barely-there makeup, and it’s a fresh take on retro-chic.

Anne Hathaway—Best Supporting Actress for Les Misérables: I may be in the minority here, but I just adore Anne’s pixie cut! This low-cut white Prabal Gurung gown paired with an adorable cut, strong brows and cherry lips is fresh, fun and fierce.

Amy Adams—Best Supporting Actress for The Master: When in doubt, go for loose, long waves. Amy stole the show at last year’s Oscars by pairing fresh, sultry makeup with a bold L’Wren Scott gown and an emerald Cartier necklace. Perfection.
