In InStyle‘s Annual Hair Issue, we rounded up ten stars that went on major chopping sprees to land key roles. From Demi Moore’s shaved head for G.I. Jane to Natalie Portman’s barely-there hair for V for Vendetta to Anne Hathaway’s Les Miserable pixie, click through the gallery to see them all. And you think your job is demanding?

When Anne Hathaway opted for this monochromatic look, she accessorized her sleek Prada sheath with Karen Walker’s Anywhere sunglasses ($280; gargyle.com) and Aldo’s sky-high Prue pumps ($80; aldoshoes.com). The secret to Hathaway’s easygoing stride? Despite the heel height, a nearly two-inch platform takes the pressure off her tootsies.

That’s a wrap! Awards season officially came to a close following Sunday night’s Oscars, but we’re already eager to recreate the winning nail looks we’ve spotted. We put together a list of the 25 best manicures from the Golden Globes, Grammys, Oscars, and every ceremony in between! Jessica Alba kicked off the nail game on a high note at the Globes, pairing her citrus-toned dress with a pastel pink lacquer, while Rihanna and Anne Hathaway matched their manis to their couture ensembles. Hathaway in particular has opted for fun and creative designs each time she hit the red carpet—at the Oscars, her pale rose nails were inscribed with the initials of her maternal and paternal grandmothers. Looks like the reigning nail art queen Zooey Deschanel has some competition! Click through for more manicure inspiration.
The 85th Academy Awards red carpet spotlighted a few key fashion trends: pastels, sparkling metallics, and, perhaps most prominently, the statement back. We first noticed it on Anne Hathaway (middle), who stunned in a tie-backed pink satin column by Prada (and a dangling Tiffany & Co. necklace) when she picked up her statue for Best Supporting Actress. Stacy Keibler (right) also rocked a sheer back on her Naeem Khan gown, and Renée Zellweger dared to bare in a Carolina Herrera gown with a plunging back and contrasting bow ties. Sexy is back—literally!

The Oscars are known for the most glamorous fashion moments, and tonight did not disappoint!

And that wasn’t the only trend we spotted! Click through the gallery to see more of the night’s fashion moments.
All eyes are on nominee Anne Hathaway tonight. We’ve been following her dreamy red carpet looks this award season and of course, that perfect pixie. Her hairstylist Adir Abergel told us his inspiration behind tonight’s more voluminous version was 1950s elegance. “I wanted to keep it simple, classic and for it to have timeless glamour,” he told InStyle.com. He also wanted a bit more texture tonight so he used Frederic Fekkai Coif Bouffant ($25 at nordstrom.com)—sweeping the product root to end, emphasizing the front—which he says is critical for short hairstyles. “This gave it enough hold to last all night,” he said. Then he brushed her strands through with a Denman brush ($13 at amazon.com) and finished off with Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing & Forming Wax ($25 at fekkai.com). “I messed it up a little,” he said. Abergel had another short-haired fashion icon in mind when he created the style: Princess Diana!
