As I'm writing this I have no idea who has won Best Actress or Best Picture (C'mon Argo!) at the 2013 Oscars but what I can say with certainty is who won the red carpet beauty awards (more about that on the next slide).
Overall, the trends were simple and safe, as they've been all award season long: loose waves, nude nails, and neutral makeup with the occasional red lip. As expected, Adele went for her signature cat eye, Sandra Bullock kept her hair extra sleek, and Ben Affleck opted not to shave his scruffy beard.
I'll admit, there were a few surprising missteps this year (sorry, Jennifer Aniston, but you're officially stuck in a hair rut, time to give up that simple blowout on the red carpet). But those slipups only meant that the gorgeous hair and makeup looks on the other actresses seemed that much more, well, flawless.
