Jennifer Lawrence's platinum hair didn't need to be elaborately styled as the ice-blonde hue did all the talking. A simple middle part and just the right amount of volume made the look red-carpet worthy. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images).
Rachel McAdams also sported lighter locks on the red carpet. Her make-up was applied by her sister Kayleen McAdams using Chanel products. I wanted Rachel's look to be a little sexy, a little sultry," the professional make-up artists said of the look. "I think Rachel was going against the grain, choosing the slinky dress that she did. We wanted to keep those clean lines, and to give her eyes the same pop that her dress had." (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images).
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra rocked a 90's lip thanks to make-up artist Stephanie Brooke Barnes' quick thinking of combining Laura Mercier's Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Cocoa Pout under a coat of Seduction.
