Following the beauty-centric pandemonium provoked by last weekend's Super Bowl halftime performance (thank you for that, J.Lo and Shakira!) comes an equivalent, fiery ball of beauty fervor courtesy of the 92nd Academy Awards. In celebration of the year's absolute best in film, all of our favorite stars have spilled onto the L.A. red carpet in their absolute finest designer gowns, jewels, and—our personal favorite—head-turning hair and makeup looks that are so good we've created a designated folder on our iPhones for safekeeping.
Thus far, the 2020 award show beauty ambiance hasn't disappointed—the Grammys red carpet was studded with too many crystalized eyelids to count, the SAG Awards felt like a unanimous ode to classic Old Hollywood glamour, and the Golden Globes served up a decidedly minimalist aesthetic on a sizzling, gilded platter.
Obviously, the bar was set high for the Oscars—aka the most anticipated award show of the entire season. Curious to see how your favorite A-list arrival wore their strands and skin? Ahead, there's enough head-turning beauty inspiration to keep your vibe afloat for the rest of 2020. Keep scrolling for all the best beauty looks from this year's Oscars red carpet.
Poised with that pin-straight bob and purple eye shadow, Maya Rudolph has never looked chicer.
Rooney Mara always breaks our hearts whilst walking the red carpet. (That's a compliment.) Also, can we point out that she went against the grain and rocked a stunning darker shade of red lipstick? Into it.
Please excuse us—we need to track down our jaw and attempt to scrape it from the floor right now.
Oh's gorgeously dewy skin (and maybe her amazing curls as well) are all we want in life.
All of a sudden we want to chop our hair off and style it à la Wiig's deep, edgy side part. Her megawatt lashes are also on deck for our next Friday night look. Who's with us?
To be honest, we haven't seen volume like this on the red carpet in a beat. We're loving Wilson's take, especially with her glamorous gold chain pin from Kitsch. (We'll be shopping the heck out of it.)
Considering it was raining in L.A. during the Oscars red carpet, we'd say Monáe's hood was a stunning (and perhaps strategic?!) success. But we also need to applaud that hot red lip, her flawless skin, and those fluttery lashes.
