Tis’ the end of award season! A little sad to see all the great beauty and fashion go, but let’s discuss Oscars 2014. In my opinion, the best dressed celeb is best leading actress Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) in that gorgeous light blue, flow-y gown and fresh pastel makeup—very Cinderella-esque, no? The plunging neckline may be too deep to be wedding-appropriate, but we’ve put together some of our favorite fashion and beauty looks from the Oscars for your wedding inspiration!
- Champagne and Sparkles. We talked about jeweled wedding dresses being a 2014 wedding trend, but it seems like jeweled gowns are all the rage at the Oscars as well. Also, the champagne and flush color palette is definitely a go-to wedding dress color for the nontraditional bride. If we were to take one celeb’s look straight off the red carpet to the wedding, it would definitely be Cate Blanchett’s—from the timeless makeup and hair to the sparkly gown to the jewel statement earrings.
- Smokey and Nude Makeup. We saw some bold, dark lips this Oscars, but the winning look is the smokey eyes with nude lips. This isn’t the traditional black and metallic smoke that we tend to steer away from for the big day. Instead, use matte nudes, taupe, and browns with a touch of metallics where necessary and a whole lot of black mascara. Finish up the look with a nude, pinky lipstick.
- Sideswept Hair with Soft Curls. This hair style looks great with or without a veil. It’s a classic look that never goes out of style and is surprisingly easy to do yourself, DIY brides! Jessica Biel is another great straight off the red carpet look for weddings—again, another sparkly champagne, nude number.
And there you have it! Head to toe academy award makeover for your wedding day :)
