Meanwhile, Angela Bassett turned up with her "lioness" hair, as Lady Gaga opted for her go-to Old Hollywood glamour look. But it was "Shameless" star Emmy Rossum, with a severe updo and vampy dark lips, that reigned supreme as one of the prettiest beauty looks of the night.

We often see Emmy Rossum embracing her long waves and light-colored lips. But this time around, she opts for a tight updo that pulls back into both a high and low bun. She then finishes it off with a super-dark Burgundy lipstick. We could really get used to this sleek, chic new look!


The trend: Sparkly eye makeup and radiant skin

Badgley Mischka S/S 19


Constance Wu

There’s no better way to debut a new set of bangs than this! Constance Wu caught everyone's attention with her fresh piece-y bangs and smooth blowout yesterday. The only thing that might steal the attention away from this hair look? Her sparkly eye makeup and to-die-for radiant skin! 


The trend: Warm brown lips

Sure, we love the wavy and effortless half-up, half-down style celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath gave Nicole Kidman, but can we also say that we couldn’t stop staring at the star’s long lashes! Her makeup artist Kate Synnott used KISS Lash Couture Faux Lash Extensions in Venus. 


The trend: Red lips

More red lips and tendrils—we’re sensing a new trend! Hairstylist John D. Set created Olivia Muni’s half-up, loose waves with Tresemme hairspray, while celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta created her stunning look with almost entirely Shiseido products, like their Modern Matte Lipstick and Whipped Powder Brush.
