Sarah Jessica Parker's hair: I saw that a hairstylist panned her updo on the Today show, calling it "Elephant Man" hair, but I couldn't disagree more. Her updo last night, by Serge Normant, was nothing short of fabulous. This woman carries Audrey Hepburn's legacy better than anyone.
Sandra Bullock's lips: Sandy's never looked better. I'm not a fan of her usual side up-do look, but the hair last night (by Adir Abergel of Frederic Fekkai) was perfect and her makeup, by Chanel's Angela Levin, was flawless. The lipcolor he used was (drumroll please...) Chanel Rouge Coco in Paris. We wouldn't be surprised if it sold out by end of day.
Vera Farmiga, all around: I daresay we have a new beauty style icon on our hands. Gorgeous fuschia lipcolor, elegant hair (by Lona Vigi) and she carried it all so well.
Rachel McAdams's updo: Loved her textured, crown-lifted updo, and the color was beautiful, too. Jennifer Lopez, Kristen Stewart and Zoe Saldana also had it right.
THE BEAUTY MISSES
Molly Ringwald: Yes, her Louise Brooks 'do was part of her iconic status back in the Eighties, but how imagine how pretty she would have looked with her hair pulled back.
Elizabeth Banks: I couldn't deal with the hair color or the ballerina headband and she looked too washed out overall.
Anna Kendrick: Example of an updo spoiled by an abundance of Seventies-style falling tendrils.
Tina Fey: She does elegance so well; she would have been better served with simply pinned up hair and red lips.
