The Best Red Carpet Beauty Looks From a Decade Ago We'd Still Copy Today
In 2010, Taylor Swift was still a country music star with curly hair and no one had ever thought to discuss Kylie Jenner's lips. Fast forward a decade later, and those are but a distant memory, just like a handful of beauty trends we're not used to seeing much of these days, like side braids or heavy black eyeliner. Although there are some trends we'd rather not revisit (we don't need to go through eyeliner that fast), there are some red carpet beauty looks from that year that are so stunning, we'd gladly wear them today.
Ahead, check out the most timeless red carpet beauty looks of 2010, and prepare to be inspired.
Rihanna's Red Curls
We're sitting here wishing Rihanna would bring back these scarlet curls from the 2010 American Music Awards.
Carrie Underwood's Layered Bob
We're tempted to use Carrie Underwood's layered bob haircut at the Grammys as inspiration for our next cut.
Selena Gomez's Curly Lob
Selena Gomez perfectly demonstrated how to style a lob haircut at the Teen Choice Awards.
Taylor Swift's Sleek Bangs
The blunt-bangs trend was a bold hair choice, but Taylor Swift effortlessly pulled it off at the American Music Awards in 2010. The look was so sexy, we wouldn't be surprised if it saw a resurgence.
Sofia Vergara's Cascading Waves
Sofia Vergara's cascading waves at the Emmy Awards were our ultimate hair inspiration and are timeless enough to wear today.
Nicole Kidman's Copper Curls
Nicole Kidman's copper hair color is so pretty, we're not surprised it's seen a huge spike in popularity in 2019.
Rosario Dawson's Peach Makeup
Rosario Dawson's natural-looking peach blush and glossy lip are perfect for an everyday look.
Jennifer Lopez's Caramel Waves
Jennifer Lopez still wears a caramel hue in her hair, but we're hoping her side bangs from 2010 come back ASAP.
Hayley Williams's Orange Hair and Baby Bangs
We're totally obsessed with Hayley Williams's orange hair, baby bangs, and bob haircut from the Grammys in 2010.
Kendall Jenner's Curled Ends
Kendall Jenner's subtle curls looked so pretty at an event in 2010 and are easy to re-create at home with a one-inch curling iron.
Kelly Rowland's Voluminous Curls
At an event in 2010, Kelly Rowland's defined and voluminous curls stole the show.
Anne Hathaway's Chestnut Hair Color
This warm chestnut hair color is one we'd love to try this Fall.
Kylie Jenner's Luscious Waves
Can you believe how thick and shiny Kylie Jenner's hair looked at an event in 2010? We'd love to re-create this deep side part.
Beyoncé's Tinsel Hair
Back when Beyoncé frequently walked the red carpet, we were hypnotized by her tinsel-adorned hair at the Grammys. Considering how festive the look is, we'd gladly bring it back for a holiday party.
Kate Hudson's Bronze Makeup
Kate Hudson's bronzed makeup from the 2010 SAG Awards is so timeless, you can re-create it any time.
