Girl Crush: Mila Kunis, A Guide to Her Complete Oscar Look

I have a total girl crush on Mila Kunis.  I think she's totally sexy without even trying and was so excited to see her pull off a girly yet sultry look at the Oscars last night. Her hair and makeup were on point complimenting that gorge lavender Elie Saab gown.  Here's the full scoop on how to get her look:

Tracey Levy of Lancome gave her a sultry overall look to compliment her gown.  The focus was on her eyes.  Products used: Lancome Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Coral Crush, Color Design Eye Shadow in Impress, Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner in Black and Hypnose Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara in Black.  A dusting of Blush Subtil in Sheer Amourose and hint of Color Fever Gloss in Blazing Pink combined with La Laque Fever Lipshine in Lucent Nude topped it off.

Tresemme Celeb Stylist, Mara Roszak, gave Mila a romantic updo.  She began by applying Tresemme Naturals Mousse to her wet hair and rough dried it parting it to the side.  Then, with a 1" curling iron she waved the hair away from the face.  Once all curled, she brushed them out with her fingertips and pulled Mila's hair softly into a messy chignon that was structured, yet unstructured.

Oscars 2011, Russell Brand

I love seeing men in tuxedos, but especially loved how Russell Brand wore black with navy at this years Oscars. His tux wasn't all my favorite (at all!), but the color pairing was on par.

The English comedian was there to present the award for Best Foreign Language Film.  Of course you're probably expecting he brought his wifey Katie Perry, but since she's on tour, he brought his mom!  So sweet!

What do you think? Do you mix black with navy?

Rumor has it Russell told E!'s Ryan Seacrest how handsome he looked and leaned over and planted a kiss on his cheek!  Ryan actually kissed him back!  Hmmm, when Katy's away Russell will play?  Probably not, but Ryan on the other hand... that one leaves me wondering.

Mandy Who? Mandy Moore? Oscar Red Carpet

So when Mandy Moore strolled down the Oscar red carpet in her Monique Lluillier gown I didn't even recognize her!  I always thought she was pretty, but she looked stunningly glamourous (if that's even a phrase). The starlette definitely kicked it up a few notches with her big diamond earrings, coral lips and elegant style.

What do you think of Many's look?  Would you have recognized her?

Oscar Beauty Predictions

I absolutely cannot wait for the Oscar's tomorrow night, but feel it's bitter sweet because the ceremony brings a close to awards season, my favorite season of the year. I got the scoop from celeb stylist, Sally Hershberger who works with major A-Listers including Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan and Blake Lively on her predictions for Oscar-worthy hairstyles.

"I predict lots of flow and movement," Hershberger commented.  "For those who opt for their hair up, the the overworked, over-styled updos are gone and the modern take on it is a soft, sophisticated style that is still youthful and pulled together."

Thinking back to the Golden Globes, which was just a few weeks ago, I guess Hershberger would be surprised to see anyone walking the carpet with a 'do like the stiff mess that was on Scarlett Johansson's head.

What was she thinking anyway!?
