What Did You Think of Oscars Beauty Overall?

Phew! Now that I've had a little time to ruminate over all of the hair and makeup looks from the Oscars, I've come up with a few thoughts. While almost everyone looked gorgeous, I couldn't help but wish that stars would stop playing it safe. For instance, Diablo Cody's pinup-girl style wouldn't work for everybody, but it's so rare to see this kind of retro style that I think her look was the night's most memorable. So overall, what are your thoughts on the night's beauty? (If you haven't seen everyone, here are the pictures).

ABSOLUTELY better makeup than fashion.

Jen, Marion and Keri were my faves. So pretty and classy. I liked Anne Hathaway's look too. Cate looked good-very glowy.

Not too bad. But I would have liked more variety. Lots of "safe" looks.

I think all the black dresses were beautiful in detail, but not in color. You really could not see the detail until very up close. I think their stylists must have all been thinking the same thing! Blahhh, but I loved Amy Adams green gown.

I loved Cate (as always), Penelope, Diablo, Heidi, and Katherine. My favorite was Marion, simply stunning. I am shamed to admit I didn't know who she was until last night; however, now I will not forget her! The movie she starred in looks awesome, I must see it, and Cate looked so happy for her!

I agree with ccsugar that Miley wears too much makeup, but it was at least refreshing to see her without the heavy black eyeliner she usually wears.

Diablo really pulled it off the pin up thing, I loved it! Among the actresses my favourites looks were Jen, Marion and CATE!

Penelope Cruz and Jennifer Garner were absolutely stunning, as was Cate Blanchett's understatement. The rest were seriously boring, and I am growing tired of the naked neck look.

Everyone looked wonderful...but I was all the same. No one really seemed to jump out at me.
