It’s been a fun week of breaking down celebrity beauty looks. Luckily the celebs never fail in giving me plenty of material!
Have a great weekend my lovelies!Posted by janna Tags Beauty Police
Ladies, please forgive me for being so late with last week’s roundup of my Beauty Police columns. I was rockin’ it out at the Bottlerock Festival in Napa, CA, and by “rockin’ it out” I mean waddling around the festival with a big pregnant belly, huffing and puffing, feeling jolts of back spasms and sore feet. Who knew being pregnant would make my body feel 80-years-old?? We still had a great time but I’m feeling overwhelming waves of guilt for neglecting you, my lovelies! So without further ado, here are all the headlines from last week’s columns:

Have a wonderful week!Posted by janna
I had so much fun writing for E! Entertainment’s Fashion Police this week in my new daily column “Beauty Police.” Now, keep in mind E! has asked me to bitchy so don’t strangle me if I’m too tough on your favorite celebrities. But come on… JLo does look like a drag queen in the photo and Rita Ora shouldn’t have left the house looking like that. For copyright reasons I can’t show you the photos on Beauty Binge so I guess you’ll just have to click on the links below to see what I’m talking about! Be sure to check out the last post “Luxe for Less” to see some of my recommendations for best beauty bargains.

This celebrity, famous for her cat-shaped eyes, past marriage to royalty, and contract with an international cosmetics powerhouse showed up to premiere of her new comedy that stars two of the biggest comedians in the business in a stunning dress, sultry smoked eyes and really bad ombre mall hair. I’m sorry but if you can get the ombre look in a box at your local drug store, the look is officially over, at the least for celebrities. Aside from the awful color, her hair looked dull and lifeless, as though she had been using hotel shampoo conditioner and nothing else for the past month. And she had this strange part down the middle which seemed to accentuate the thinness of her hair and made the style ever more offensive. Her hairstylist needs to be shot or at least demoted to reality TV starlets.janna Tags Beauty Blind Item, Celebrities, Celebrity Beauty, Celebrity Blind Beauty Item, Hair, Limp Hair, Ombre, Oribe, Volumizing Products

I know, I know… I said I wouldn’t even show Jennifer Aniston’s photos in my Oscars post because I was so disgusted with her “let me just run a brush through my hair and throw on a ball gown” look. But her hairstylist Chris McMillan recently did an interview for People Magazine explaining why he sent her down the red carpet looking so boring, “She wanted to keep the makeup natural and the hair natural. I think it’s about, at this point, being really comfortable on the red carpet.” This was my last straw. It’s intervention time…
Jennifer, please remember I’m staging this intervention because I care. I feel like I’m speaking on behalf of a lot of your fans who are just dying to see you show up on the red carpet again actually looking like you give a shit. You’re obviously a stunning movie star, no one is doubting that. But there was a day not long ago when you would rock an updo and a sultry smoky eye for a red carpet rather than the same hair and makeup as a night out at the local taqueria.
Let’s take a look at you at the Oscars this year:janna Tags Celebrity Beauty, Intervention, Jennifer Aniston, Oscars, Red Carpet Beauty, Red carpet look
Oh my lovelies, for those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook you know last night’s red carpet was simply traumatizing for this beauty addict. Where was the glitz? Where was the glamour? Since when did messy matronly updos become an acceptable trend? And where the hell was the red carpet makeup? Based on the majority of looks last night I’m pretty sure the LA makeup artists are on silent strike. That’s the only conclusion I can come to after seeing several starlets whose faces and dresses were both devoid of color. Luckily, a select few of the celebrities rebelled against the boring plague last night by actually showing up in black tie beauty (imagine wearing black tie makeup and hair to the most formal event of the year? How novel) and so yes, I do actually have a fewpositive things to say, but don’t expect too much sunshine and roses. Oh and by the way, in protest I refuse to show you Jennifer Aniston because you could honestly be looking at any photo of her from the past couple years. I just can’t condone it.
What did you think of the Oscars last night? Who were some of your favorites?

Since obviously all these looks are timeless, I thought I would bring this post back to life in homage of the Oscars tomorrow. Enjoy!
In honor of the Oscars tomorrow, as a huge movie buff, I thought I would count down the ten most beautiful and iconic hair and makeup looks of all time. My original thinking was I would include at least one trendsetting movie star from each decade – Madonna from Desperately Seeking Susan(1985), Julie Roberts from Pretty Woman (1990), Rooney Mara from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), etc. But when I started making my list I realized I just couldn’t spare a spot for these women. I had to make my decisions based solely on beauty and influence, and find the movies that made the actresses into style icons.

We all know Oscar Nominee Jennifer Lawrence knows how to rock a red carpet since she transformed every red carpet into a runway during her Hunger Games media tour. She has not disappointed this award season especially considering that for most of the season Jennifer (yes, we’re obviously on a first name basis) should have been in bed or in the hospital rather than strutting her stuff on the red carpet since she was plagued with illness for most of the award shows. You would never know she even had a sniffle based on her photos — every look was classic and flawless. Obviously the only way to pay true homage to The Girl on Fire leading up to her big night is to recreate one of her best red carpet looks. I chose her SAG Awards look:
First I want to introduce and thank our lovely model, Maghan McDowell, a vey talented writer who currently covers Style and Living for the San Francisco Chronicle. She was very patient with my non-makeup artist methods and didn’t bat an eyelash when I had to clean up the side of her face because I had managed to drag coral makeup (don’t ask; I was experimenting) all over her cheek and chin.janna Tags Bobbi Brown, Dolce & Gabbana, Evening Makeup, Fresh, Laura Mercier, Makeover, Red Carpet Beauty, Red carpet look, Tarte, Urban Decay
I’m not going to spend too much on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet because, um, it’s the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Enough said. BUT since the glitterati bothered getting all dolled up (thank GOD that frightful “no makeup” trend didn’t poison the SAG awards red carpet) I want to share a few of my favorite looks to both love and hate on. (And yes, for those of you who were wondering… Despite my past red carpet hate fests, I am capable of recognizing beauty when I see it. I mean it’s not my fault if the starlets show up to the red carpet looking like a nightmare. What do you want me to do? Lie? I think not.)
Freida Pinto: Obviously I’m going to start with perfection. Her makeup artist was smart enough to just let Freida’s gorgeous skin be the star. I see warm tones on her eyelids and navy eyeliner on her lower lash line — something I wouldn’t have necessarily put together but it really works. I love the bold natural brow but I probably would have added just a little more sheer color to her lip. And how adorable is her faux tucked-under bob? Totally changes her look and works with dress.janna Tags Celebrities, Celebrity Beauty, Red Carpet Beauty
