There were a lot of major fashion moments on last night’s Emmy Awards red carpet — so many ladies in red, Lizzy Caplan’s leading lady glamour, Lena Dunahm’s whole situation – but I think the beauty and hair stole the show. Click through for some of my fave beauty looks, plus the products you need to get them for yourself!
I don’t know whose hair is fiercer: Steven Tyler or Bruce Jenner. It really is a tossup. [Photos: AKM-GSI]
I remember when “True Blood” first debuted and we got our first glimpse of New Zealander Anna Paquin (then still best known for her Oscar-winning role in “The Piano” years before) as blonde waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Paquin looked so different and not like herself as a blonde, but thanks to her complete embodiment of the role, it didn’t take long before it became hard to imagine her as anything but a towhead. Well, Anna’s apparently been itching for a change, so when “True Blood” finished filming its final season this week, the actress went straight for the bottle. The dye bottle. Paquin posted these photos to social media yesterday, showing off her new purple and blue hair, and I think it looks amazing. Hmm, maybe it’s time I did a little experimenting… [E! Online]
Anna’s new look is daring, sure, but it’s also surprisingly “on trend,” as the lady mags say. Many fashionable celebs have dyed their hair some shade of purple, lilac, lavender or eggplant in the last few years. Maybe purple is the new ombre? Click through for more…
Oooh, I’m totally swooning over the hairstyle Diane Kruger wore to the premiere of her show “The Bridge” late last week. It looks complicated but I think it’s actually quite easy. It looks to be that Diane — or her hairstylist, let’s be real — sectioned the hair into two at the top of the head and did a Dutch braid (an inverted French braid) on the back section, then braided the front half of hair back and around/on top of it, so that the Dutch braid peeked through. The result is very Grace Kelly in front, Daenerys Targaryen in back. So unexpected! [Photos: Getty Images]
“I dyed my hair blonde because I wanted to feel better about myself. I do like it blonde, but it doesn’t make you happy. The truth is: it was a long hard winter and I thought, maybe this will change my life. But it never does. I should know that by now, I’m 36 years old.”
When Maggie Gyllenhaal dyed her pixie cut a lovely shade of blonde earlier this year, I assumed it must be for a role. But in a recent interview The Independent, Gyllenhaal confessed that she had turned to the (peroxide) bottle in an attempt to ease her seasonal depression. She’s right that a new look rarely has a lasting impact on one’s mood, but thank goodness the blonde actually looked nice on her. (She’s since gone back to being a brunette.) I once ruined a perfectly decent spring by getting a terrible wedge haircut. [People]
Where are all the curly haired women in Hollywood? I’m not talking about curls sculpted with hot rollers and curling irons — show me women with wild, natural curls. The kinds of curls real women have. I am one of those women, and I’m always disappointed to see straight hair dominating the the big and small screen, in magazines and on the red carpet. Especially when women with beautiful curly hair wear these straight hairstyles! If you do a quick search for celebs with curly hair, you’ll find tons of photos of Keri Russell, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift, but even these women wear their hair straight 50 percent of the time at least.
Luckily, lately, I have spotted a few lovely ladies who embrace their curly hair on and off screen and it makes me appreciate my curls even more. If you’ve got ‘em too, cancel your next blowout and join these women in flaunting your curls.
