So it was the Oscars weekend and we stayed up to see all the pretty couture dresses taking to the red carpet because let’s face it, there’s nothing we at Sleeklove here more than some awesome couture gowns and some perfectly done hair. So we’ve put together the most epic of long posts for you here to show you just how to get your favourite stars Oscars look. Whether it was the Red Carpet Glam you were after or the Vanity Fair after party glitz, we have both here on display. Let’s get to it!
Let’s start off with Miss Halle Berry. Looking everything glitzy in her plunging neckline Versace gown, Halle lived up to our expectations entirely. She is never one to shy away from something a bit different on the Red Carpet and we do worry sometimes she takes things a bit too far in the wrong direction but this is spot on. She had her trademark short hair up in soft spikes, adding more drama to her look, her short her suits her down to the ground. We know that not everyone wants to take the plunge into short hair though, and that’s where Sleekcomes in to play! Try out our Wig Fashion Human Hair Gloria Wig, for a short spiky style without having to commit to getting rid of your own locks! Easy!
Jennifer Hudson looked like a dream in blue on the Red Carpet for the Oscars. She wore a Roberto Cavalli long sleeved, blue sequin gown. It fit like a glove and left her looking like something a bit like a classy, chic little Mermaid. We loved the colour and the shine! Her hair was the talking point at Sleek HQ though, have you ever seen such perfectly straight long locks with such a perfect statement fringe? So on trend right now and a look we’re truly coveting. To get this yourself go for the Hair Couture Soft Net Wig Sandy. The hair is perfectly straight and the high quality means you get no frizz and your fringe stays fabulous!
Kelly Rowland must be taking lessons of Beyonce, because she has been kicking it on the Red Carpet lately with her flawless selections of couture. Monochrome is so on trend right now, showing all over fashion week and Miss Rowland’s black and white strapless Donna Karan gown is perfectly chic, we love the big of leg she’s showing too. Makes the whole ensemble more playful. We also love her hair pulled up into this braided bun paired with this super blunt cut, full fringe. Have some fun recreating this look with Hair Couture accessories! Swirl Bunnywill give you the perfect bun; try wrapping around some Headband Hair Braidsto give it an interesting edge. We even have a Hair Couture clip in front fringe, for the perfect blunt cut, full bangs. The entire on trend look with none of the effort.
Oh Kerry Washington, you are so pretty! We’ve loved watching Kerry rock every Red Carpet she comes across from all of the Django Unchained press to all of the awards shows; her fashion choices are always unique and daring in a crowd of really bland beige ensembles. Kerry just looked divine in her coral Miu Miu couture gown. We love the embellished bodice against the simple coral gown and the train was to die for. Not many ladies can carry off such a colour and such a bodice but Kerry works it all well. The trick to this is her hair and makeup is super simple. She’s middle parted her long locks and kept them pushed behind the shoulders and straight. To get this look go for Sleek’s Spotlight Dainty Synthetic Lace Wig. It’s perfectly straight and frames your face well; also the lace front means it has versatile parting options that always look natural. Experiment like Kerry and see what you can achieve!
Naomi Harris really was a golden girl on the Red Carpet. We loved her edgy embellished, gold gown with a daring split by Vivienne Westwood; she looks like she’s trying to be one of the statuettes themselves! She really compliments the look with her accessories, which are also gold but look stunning and provide some glitz to everything that’s going on here. Her hair is classic, a deep side part and long curls pulled over one shoulder which really is Old Hollywood Glamour 101 and a look you can’t go wrong with for a formal event. If you want to go for this deep parting go for Sleek’s Fashion 101 Lily Synthetic Lace Wig. The handmade full lace at the front and the back mean you can part your hair in all sorts of places and it will still look natural. The style itself has the curls to create the glamour! What are you waiting for?
Octavia Spencer looked amazing on the Red Carpet. Her one shoulder, blush tulle gown with a hand-beaded bodice and lace underlay couture gown from Tadashi Shoji really just suited her so well. She looked like a princess, but a classy princess not a childish Barbie princess. The colour is so subtle and it just really gives this a floaty, dreamy, romantic feel. With such a pretty, but quite heavy dress we are glad she went with a simple up do and a fringe. Seeing the trend with big fringes now right? Go for a playful up do using Sleek’s EZ Ponytails as a base, we’d suggest the Euro Long in this case. Then perhaps use a clip in Hair Couture Fringe to get your bangs bang on, and then go find your best couture gown (or some jeans, jeans are good too!).
Last but by no means least we have Zoe Saldana. She look absolutely elegant in a gray crepe bustier gown with a belted waist and feminine floral applique neckline from Alexis Mabille. The four tones on the skirt and train of this we LOVE. Who knew grey could look so good? Though perhaps it’s a little busy on top, take away the bow or the belt and you have perfection right there! Zoe is pairing this look up with a really chic and sleek wavy shoulder length do. It’s so simple and so perfect for her outfit. You can grab this look yourself with Sleek’s Wig Fashion Angelina Synthetic Wig. Go for a side parting and keep your curls on your back for a clean finish. Oscar perfect in no time at all!
