24 Of The Best Oscars Beauty Looks Of All Time

From Audrey Hepburn’s micro fringe at the 1954 Oscars, to Zoë Kravitz’s rendition of it in 2022.

When it comes to the Academy Awards, it’s hard to keep your eyes off the fashion. However, if we drag our attention away, we’ll come to see some of the most seamless and glamorous beauty looks to ever grace a red carpet.

From Audrey Hepburn’s micro fringe at the 1954 Oscars, to Zoë Kravitz’s rendition of it in 2022, we see the styles that just keep coming back throughout the years. 

As far as award ceremonies go, the Oscars is as much of a big deal as they get. Thus, we see many celebrities playing up the glamour, with chic, but not necessarily daring looks. It’s not about being the most ostentatious, it’s about exuding that Old Hollywood glamour and reminding loyal watchers of the gravitas of the movie star.

While the makeup is quite simple and glamourous, the hair is more playful. From Nicole Kidman’s 2004 updo that channeled a kind of curly mohawk (made oh-so-chic) to Halle Berry’s impressive afro at the 2017 awards, there have been so many hair looks that we can’t help but celebrate.

The makeup and hair trends may come and go over the eras, but these looks will forever have a place in our hearts.
