Best & Worst Hair
Best Actress nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes got tough among the boys in Whale Rider, but she chose a superlatively feminine look for her Oscar hairdo. Her soft style – accented by a sweet, sparkly whale hairpin – is festive and appropriate for the 13-year-old, the youngest-ever nominee in her category.
Presenter Julianne Moore's signature red tresses flowed softly and effortlessly, contrasting strikingly with her alabaster shoulders and silver gown.
Presenter Jennifer Garner softened her formal updo with sideswept bangs, creating a look that's graceful enough for the Oscars but still flirty and sexy.
Many stars went with long, soft curls on Oscar's red carpet, but presenter Sandra Bullock's hair came out looking over-processed, with way too many colors tossed in.
Liv Tyler (a presenter and star of 11-time winner Lord of the Rings) mixed decades with this style – the wavy bob on her left is very 1930s, while the dramatic asymmetry recalls the 1980s. The result is uneven and unflattering to her otherwise radiant look.
