STARS, STYLE, SECRETS!
21 DAYS UNTIL THE OSCARS!
LORDE’S BOLD LIPS
At just 17, the “Royals” singer reigned on the red carpet with her goth-meets-glam look. While still keeping her face “fresh and radiant,” M.A.C senior makeup artist Amber Dreadon says she kept her makeup “a bit boyish and darkly cool with a lip focus.”
To create Lorde’s vampy purple lip, Dreadon combined M.A.C Lipsticks in Heroine and Cyber ($15 each; maccosmetics.com).
Actresses who wore a
gown were most likely to win an Oscar above other popular necklines.

The mane motto at the Grammys: the higher, the better. Singers like Alicia Keys (left) and Pink teased their tresses into rocker-chic coifs.
DESIGNER TO WATCH
Favored by music and movie stars, the Scottish-born designer Christopher Kane, 31, finds inspiration in offbeat places from brain stems to flower stems. “I always like to find something that’s unnerving and make it wearable,” he has said. Stylist Micaela Erlanger, who works with Lupita Nyong’o, calls Kane’s aesthetic “perfectly cool and always unexpected. He knows how to make a very tailored and figure-flattering dress. And his designs are slightly edgy in detail, be it cutouts or modern embellishments.”
