A Round of Applause For the Best Celebrity Beauty Looks From the Oscars So Far
It's been an award show season like no other, but despite the postponements, social-distancing guidelines, and virtual stages, the stars in attendance still went all out in the hair and makeup department, and the 2021 Oscars was no different. The live event saw all nominees and presenters in person for the ceremony for the first time in a long time, and they made the most of it.
Eyes are often on what and who celebrities are wearing, but the beauty look is the icing on top of the cake — no outfit is complete without it. Celebrities and their respective glam teams have been primping and prepping for hours for tonight's big reveal. Viola Davis showed up in a dramatic slicked-back, half-up, half-down hairstyle; Maria Bakalova wore a bold red lip that popped against her dress; and Regina King stunned in a blunt bob.
With over-the-top nails, creative hairstyles, and glamorous makeup, the Oscars wrapped up the 2021 award season with a bang. See the best beauty looks from the night ahead.
