The Oscars, those most craved for movie awards, were already given away to those who most deserve them with their outstanding contribution to cinema in 2013. Apart from the movies, the celebrity fashion and beauty looks are being discussed with passion all over the internet and I think this is the most natural thing to do after the Academy Awards reception :) So I cannot pass this major event without making a closer inspection of celebrities looks from manicure perspective. So welcome back to my Red carpet nails column where we discuss celebrity manicure and do some trend spotting.
If I had to choose one word to describe celebrity nails at the Oscars this year and I was not allowed to choose ‘boring’, I would say ‘classic’. All the glamour at the 2014 Academy Awards was saved for the spectacular dresses and gorgeous beauty looks so nails had to lay back and quietly wait for all this to pass in nudes, pastels and the classic reds :) These were the three categories all celebrity manicures at the 2014 Oscars can go to. Here, it was all documented on these buzzfeed.com photos and I am sure if you can take your eyes away the haute couture dresses and flawless beauty looks you will notice nails… somewhere… there.
Nude nails at the Oscars 2014
Sure, nudes and off-whites are a total nail trend for 2014 so actually the ladies who chose them made a somewhat trendy pick. Olivia Wilde, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Penelope Cruz, Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Jessica Biel were some of the celebrities who went for the natural look.
Shy pastel shades at the 2014 Academy Awards
Pastel shades are another key nail trend for 2014 so some celebrities chose pretty pastels for their nails at the 2014 Academy Awards reception. Jada Pinkett Smith, Julia Roberts, Olga Kurylenko and Robin Roberts were some of the ladies who went for pastel manicure for the big event.
Classic red and burgundy nails at the 2014 Oscars
Classic red is always a safe choice when it comes to nails for a formal occasion. If you do not want to play it safe but still want to stay in the classy feel, burgundy is an option too. Anna Kendrick, Kerry Washington, Emma Watson, Jennifer Garner and June Squib were some of the celebrities who chose the reds for the Oscars.
There were some exceptions of the categories above like for example Charlize Teron and Sandra Bullock’s black nails but it was pretty much it.
The stiletto nails
Regarding nails shape, stiletto nails are still a top trend and it is not so hard to guess why, they are absolutely gorgeous! Lady gaga, Anne Hathaway, Kelly Osbourne, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Lupita Nyong’o and Kate Hudson were some of the celebrities who rocked the stiletto nails on the read carpet.
If I were a celebrity, I would choose the nude look for the Oscars event. How about you :)
Thanks for reading, I hope you enoyed!
