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
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
