We're so used to seeing photos of stars from the front that we often miss what's going on in the back and sides. Especially when it comes to updos, which often have lovely flourishes in the least visible places. On Oscars night, there were plenty of gorgeous examples. Some stars chose simple chignons, while others wore gorgeously complex swirls and braids. Check out our red carpet favorites now.
It was a parade of beautiful moms on the red carpet at the Oscars tonight! Without fear of messy lil hands tugging at their skirt hems, Hollywood's mamas used the occasion to wear some sparkle and shine! See if you can identify your favorite celebrity mothers (and moms-to-be) all dressed up!
Just as sandblast hues overtook the Golden Globes, subtle nude sparklers took tonight's Oscars by storm, showing that this trend in award-show dressing was a favorite of the season. Tonight nominees, Hailee Steinfeld and Michelle Williams channeled the same subtle shimmer on their own nude-hued but very different silhouetted gowns, while Mandy Moore and Halle Berry likewise glowed in their own takes on the glamorous but understated sparkle. Now, it's time to weigh in — which leading lady wore the trend best?
Some stars' past Academy Award beauty looks weren't the best we've ever seen, but a peek back into the red carpet vault proves that there were many who got it right. Sure, poodle perms, frosted shadows, and brick red lipstick might look strange or dated to us now, but they at one point constituted what was hot at the time. Here are 40 stars who stood out with their memorable makeup and hairstyles at the Oscars (and Governors Ball) from way back when.

This Sunday I'll be celebrating the Academy Awards in style at an Oscars party. Besides a large spread of food, my friend is supplying each guest with a bag of popcorn — it's the perfect snack for celebrating the film industry. And if you can skip the butter bath, it's also an ideal healthy snack because it's low-calorie, high in antioxidants, low-fat, and filling.
Since my friend's Oscar party leans closer to a fancy affair, she's glamming up her popcorn with creative toppings like a sprinkle of pepper and Parmesan cheese. But before even thinking about what goes on top, make sure you make it the old-fashioned way: on the stove with a little canola oil. It tastes better, is healthier for you, and doesn't contain all the junk found in store-bought microwave popcorn. If you're worried about calories, try our fat-free popcorn or use an air popper.
For a glammed up event like an Oscars party, I like sprinkling healthy toppings like nutritional yeast or seaweed onto my popcorn, or dried spices like rosemary, garlic, and cayenne. If that doesn't sound good to you check out YumSugar's popcorn recipe roundup. How do you like to dress up your popcorn?
