View in slideshow Among all of the awards shows, red carpet events, premieres, and everything in between, there were lots of intriguing beauty looks this year. It was nearly impossible to narrow the best of the best looks down to just a select few, but here are 15 distinctive hair and makeup looks from 2009 that I'm sure you won't forget. Image Source: Getty Amanda Seyfried Image Source: Getty You loved her look at the 2009 Golden Globes in January, and why not? Re-create this look at home with CoverGirl Lipstick in Rose Cashmere ($5.50) and Sephora Brand Brown Smoky Eyes Palette ($38).

Not only is she a total knockout with the warm-toned coral lipstick, but her classic looped chignons bring it all together. Rihanna Image Source: Getty In February, Rihanna was still out sporting the asymmetrical 'do that made her a style icon. I love how the choppy bangs sweep over her silver and bronzed brown eye makeup palette. To copy the look, apply a black liner on both the top and bottom lash lines with a heavy hand. Next, add a silver shadow, like Bobbi Brown Chrome Eye Shadow in Silver ($22) to the lids, and a warm brown shade, such as BareMinerals Eyecolor in Java ($13), to the crease.

Who wouldn't want her classic red and blond locks? Then again, sometimes Julia does go edgy. The addition of the pink streak on the underneath layers, a request of her daughter's, gives her look a bit of an unexpected edge. To get your pink on, try Pink Hi-Lite Long Clip-In Synthetic Hair Extensions ($4).

If you've got dark tones in your hair, try out a colored conditioner, like Tigi Bed Head Brunette Goddess Conditioner ($17), to keep the hue looking fresh and rich.

Back in March, Blake paired her raspberry-toned dress with a matching lip. Find out how to get a similar waved look here, and simply break up the curl with your fingers to create a more laid-back effect. Kristen Stewart Image Source: Getty In May, Twilight dominated the MTV Movie Awards, while the film's star, Kristen Stewart, dominated the red carpet with this rocker-chic style. Her beachy waves and smoky eye lend a bit of edge to the overall look. For some tousled locks of your own, apply Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray ($23) on damp hair. Blow-dry, creating that worn-in look by scrunching your strands with your fingers.

While this Debbie Harry-esque asymmetrical cut was short-lived on Gaga, it's a memorable cool-girl style, especially when paired with a matte red lipstick. Zoe Saldana Image Source: WireImage The beautiful Zoe Saldana has had an amazing year professionally, and now that her new film, Avatar, is right on all of our radars, we'll be seeing lots more of her. Her ladylike hairstyle has just the right amount of a modern flair, and the dark eye shadows are perfect for an evening out. For an intensely smoky eye, apply a black, easy-to-blend liner to both the top and bottom lash lines. Smudge out to diffuse the pigment and top off with a rich charcoal shadow. Scarlett Johansson Image Source: Getty Scarlett has changed up her hair color often this year, and in July, it was all about the strawberry blond tones and faux-bob style. Classic and gorgeous. Olivia Wilde Image Source: Getty At the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards in September, actress Olivia Wilde dazzled with this palette of pastels, with her signature tightly lined eye makeup in full effect. Victoria Beckham Image Source: WireImage In September, at an Adidas event, I admired Victoria's grown-out short cut with sweeping bangs and textured layers. To make this look your own, blow-dry your locks with a round brush for volume and then flat iron the ends to create a sleek style. To set the look and get pieciness like Victoria, run a light wax through your hair, like Kim Vo Sculpting Shaper Texturizer ($23).

In October, she styled her signature cut with lots of shine and texture on top, keeping her makeup palette soft and neutral. To create a similar texture in your locks, try Amplify by Matrix Volumizing System Gel-Wax ($14). Amplify by Matrix Volumizing System Gel-Wax $14 from drugstore.com Buy Now Sarah Jessica Parker Image Source: Getty At the recent premiere for her new flick Did You Hear About the Morgans? SJP showed off her perfectly colored and styled locks by pinning one side back. For something a little extra special for the holidays, might I recommend a stylish barrette? Freida Pinto Image Source: WireImage Freida Pinto has had a banner year, and at this year's Oscars, she turned heads with this gorgeous makeup look and floral-inspired updo.
