Hollywood knows how to put on great shows. Hollywood knows how to create a style that is followed all over the world. Hollywood knows how to surprise. However, the events of September 11 left their mark on this symbol of American society. The stars shone a little less brightly, and the ceremonies were a little less pompous. And now, six months later, American show business is finally acquiring its famous chic. Luxurious flounces, lace, ruffles, gold and glittering jewels on the celebrity red carpets are a testament to the return of glamor to the industry.
The first sign was the Golden Globe Awards, which traditionally precede the Oscars. Before the stars and stars emerged under the camera flashes, they passed through the skillful hands of stylists, the most experienced of whom Collier Strong has worked with Mila Jovovich, Andie MacDowell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Calista Flockhart. This time Strong offered his clients a bright, festive, slightly playful makeup.
The second stage in the formation of the "star image" was, undoubtedly, the creation of a unique hairstyle. Renowned hairdresser Ken Paves has advised his clients, including Heather Lockler and Sella Ward, on hair extensions. Hairstyle this season should be lush and a little chaotic.
But, of course, outfits became the main concern of celebrities. A bright sunny day seemed to dictate his own style - open skin, spectacular jewelry. Women in tuxedos no longer aroused the same enthusiasm of the public.
Loud applause: Will & Grace star Debra Messing in a dark purple strapless Oscar de la Renta dress was a fashion sensation. Her shoulders were carefully wrapped in a stole of delicate muslin, the skirt seemed to consist of only gathers. By all accounts, the actress changed her princess image for a truly royal style. Fred Leighton's diamond earrings and neatly slicked hair gave Debra some of the Victorian charm so popular in recent seasons.
The only star who decided to present a completely new fashion direction to the public was Cate Blanchett. She successfully tried on the "Chinese line" from Christian Dior - a blouse with a stand-up collar and gorgeous haute couture embroidery, wide trousers. The actress proved that looking fashionable doesn't mean being half-naked. But it was only a few weeks after the birth of her first child. The costume was spectacularly complemented with oriental jewels (platinum and diamonds) from Cynthia Bach.
The amazing coffee-colored Valentino dress was so in harmony with Hale Berry's skin that it seemed to completely merge with her. On closer inspection, you might notice the gorgeous beading, accentuated by the actress's curly hair and tiny chocolate-colored diamond earrings from Harry Winston.
Another gown from Valentino sat beautifully on "Gilmore Girls" star Lauren Graham. The transparency of the fabric was effectively accentuated by blue and bronze beads, complemented by shiny gold earrings from Tony Duquette. If you are daring enough to wear an evening dress with sporty short sleeves, you might want to take a closer look at this outfit.
After a gray suit from Chloe at last year's Oscars, Kate Hewdson finally changed her predilection by appearing in a stunning gold Versace dress. Luminous skin paired with platinum hair, open chest and long sleeves is an impressive style.
Andie McDowell unexpectedly decided to revive Jennifer Lopez's style, appearing at the ceremony in a very bold Escada neckline. Gorgeous embroidery, open skin, simple, graceful hairstyle made the most favorable impression on those present.
Kim Cattral appeared at the ceremony in a modest bodycon dress from Eric Gaskins, complemented by an embroidered handbag and jewelry from Cynthia Bach. Delicately gathered, soft hair created a classic look. Well, the classics are still in vogue.
Ambulance star Juliana Margulis opted for a dark crimson bodycon dress from Narciso Rodriguez. The sleek, slicked hair and flawless makeup drew unconditional critical acclaim.
In a black Armani dress, with jewelry from Harry Winston and shoes from Stuart Weizmann, Jane Quarovski looked like a real star.
Loud Whistle: Sarah Jessica Parker admitted that she never met Karl Lagerfeld, who designed her costume. Well, she had a reason to talk to the designer "heart to heart". Sarah's too bare shoulders evoked strange associations, her figure seemed a little skewed, cocktail pants combined with a skirt only intensified the unpleasant impression. By the way, Whoopi Goldberg tried this style last year (with the same "success").
Sella Ward managed to choose the only dress from Valentino, which critics did not like even at the shows. Too much body, too distorted proportions, too many bows. Alas, the greats have their own setbacks.
Nicole Kidman has two styles at once - a beauty in elegant vintage dresses with luxurious curly hair (she always delights both the public and critics), and a blonde with hair slicked back in strict dresses that hardly differ from each other. Unfortunately, she chose the second style for the Golden Globe ceremony, wearing an outfit from the YSL / Rive Gauche collection. However, the dress itself might have looked good if not for her awful hairstyle.
Cameron Diaz chose to look a little clown in a suit from Vivienne Westwood. However, they say that the circus style will become a new fashion trend in the next seasons, and the "queen of punk" Westwood is able to guess the further trajectory of fashion development. Cameron's makeup and hairstyle looked flawless, but the striped dress and jacket, alas, spoiled her gorgeous figure.
Jennifer Aniston's love of pantsuits this time let her down. Tuxedos on women are not so popular anymore. Plus, Jennifer and Brad looked like they were pulled off the couch in the middle of watching their favorite Simpsons and forced to run to the ceremony. Alas, the entertainment industry cannot forgive its stars for sloppy makeup and hairstyle. And Brad could use, after all, shave off his beard and lose weight. Is he going to act as a stunt double for Russell Crowe in the new film?
Heather Lockler in a Vera Wang mini dress, richly decorated Jimmy Shue sandals and a luxurious hairstyle designed by L "Oreal was supposed to look like a girl from Las Vegas in the middle of the last century. However, alas, this style was not met audience with due enthusiasm.”Heather looked just old-fashioned.
And finally, all the stars who chose to appear at the ceremony in pantsuits caused an uncontrollable yawn from fashion journalists. Alas, alas, ladies, the year 2002 has come, fashion is changing faster than our ideas about it. The tuxedo did not look good on Courtney Cox-Arquette, and Jessica Alba's white suit did not make the proper impression on those present.
