Staging Intervention for: Jennifer Aniston

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:

Oscars 2013 Red Carpet Reflux (I Mean Recap)

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.

Oscars Special: Ten Most Beautiful and Iconic Hair & Makeup Looks of All Time

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.

Which of these looks are your favorite? Did I miss anyone?

Oscars Round-up: The Good,The Bad and The Ugly

Generally, I was pretty underwhelmed and disappointed with the red carpet last night.   Some starlets didn’t seem to get the “age appropriate” makeup and hair memo (Emma Stone and Penelope Cruz), nor did they think that fixing their dark roots might be a nice touch (yeah you, Cameron Diaz).   Maria and I sipped good champagne while we ripped apart the red carpet road kill:
