If you haven't had your fill of trend spying from following the runways of New York Fashion Week, the Academy Awards is always a good time to brush up on what's hip in the world of fashion and beauty.
And, if you're anything like me, watching The Oscars is just as much about seeing who's wearing what as it is about who's winning what.
If you happened to miss it, here's a recap on what went down:
Adele's pointed fingernails.
I couldn't help but notice them as the Oscar winner continuously raised and lowered her hands during her Skyfall performance. This look has been all over the runways this month, and is predicted to be the hottest nail trend for the upcoming seasons. So, say adieu to those squared off French manicures, ladies.
Not only did Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway coordinate their best actress wins, but their overall looks appeared as if the duo planned ahead for coordinating photo ops, too. Both were beautifully outfitted in soft pink gowns and makeup that suggested a more natural and subtle beauty.
Side swept hair
Deep parts that flowed into voluminous side swept locks showed up on celebrities like Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock.
Beards, beards and more beards.
The bearded trio of Argo producers wasn’t alone in their attempts at ruggedly handsome. Hugh Jackman and Justin Theroux also looked a little more bristly than usual, making one wonder we're just a few months late for Movember.
