The Academy Awards were a big night for Adele—in addition to her stellar performance of “Skyfall,” (for which she was backed by a 1,500-lb. curtain made of 100,000 Swarovski crystals) the singer also took home an Oscar for Best Original Song, making her only two awards away from the coveted EGOT status! Of course, Adele never disappoints in the beauty category, and through the course of her memorable night, she showed off two gorgeous hair and makeup looks. We caught up with her hairstylist and makeup artist Michael Ashton, who took us on an exclusive trip backstage to see how the star’s lush lashes and soft curls came together.

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!

This awards season the red carpet was filled with many shades of its namesake hue! At the Golden Globes, Jennifer Lawrence walked the red carpet in a coral organza Dior Haute Couture gown, for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Jessica Chastain chose a figure skimming scarlet Alexander McQueen column, Rihanna picked a vibrant crimson Azzedine Alaïa dress for this year’s Grammys, and at the Academy Awards, Jennifer Aniston donned a strapless gown in classic Valentino Red.

InStyle’s Viewing Party (aka the Second Best Place To Watch the Oscars Besides Inside The Dolby Theatre)Feb 25, 2013 @ 3:30 pm
Just minutes away from the Dolby Theatre, where the 85th Academy Awards were held, there was another celebration going on—InStyle‘s annual Oscar viewing party! The guest list at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood included Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance, Justin Mikita (both in Hugo Boss), Kat Graham (in Dolce & Gabbana), Jessica Szohr (in Reformation), and more, snacking on steak sandwiches and sipping Beluga Noble Vodka mixed drinks to watch all the action, both fashion and film. One very big fan of Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence also swung by, Hunger Games co-star Alexander Ludwig. “I was blown away, but I totally expected it. She, of all people, deserved it,” said Ludwig (in Armani), who stood up and cheered as soon as he heard her name. “She’s one of the most classy and incredible, exceptional people I’ve ever met. I’m so happy for her. The second I heard her name, I texted her!” And he also had a winning moment himself, predicting enough right answers for InStyle‘s Academy Awards ballot contest to take home the grand prize, a luxury stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
