Sandra Bullock In Lanvin – 2014 SAG Awards

Sandra Bullock In Lanvin – 2014 SAG Awards

Sandra Bullock continued through her big award season at the 2014 SAG Awards in Los Angeles tonight (January 18).

The nominee and ‘Gravity’ star wore an emerald green Lanvin gown inspired by the designer’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

She paired the gown with silver Jimmy Choo ‘Valetta’ sandals, a metallic Roger Vivier ‘Boite de Nuit’ clutch and a simple gold bangle.

While the colour is perfection, I am so not feeling this gown. The fabric feels heavy, and the shape is doing very little for Sandra’s enviable figure.

A messy updo, bold smokey eyes and pink lips complete the look.

Or you with me on this, or do you love Sandra’s look?

Sandra Bullock In Lanvin – 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Sandra Bullock attended the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica as a Best Actress nominee for her work in ‘Gravity.’

Like Cate Blanchett, Sandra also wore Lanvin, but her strapless tiered ruffled raspberry gown was custom made by Alber Elbaz.

Sandra gave her figure-flattering, crease-free gown an edge with a studded black leather belt and crystal detailing, which complemented her Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim Mini’ clutch.

Fred Leighton antique diamond scroll earrings, smokey eyes, a nude lip, and sleek tresses completed her sultry look.

Much improved from the Golden Globes?

Golden Globes Hair Trend Spotting: Deep Side Parts

Golden Globes Hair Trend Spotting Deep Side Parts

While plenty of different beauty looks were seen on the red carpet at Sunday’s Golden Globe awards, there was one major trend we spotted on the stars: deep side parts. Whether the hair was left down or pulled into a ponytail or updo, the deep side part was definitely the look to have.

Sandra Bullock’s hair was given a deep side part before being pulled into a relaxed side ponytail, and Emma Watson’s hair was sleeked into a side part before being wrapped into a messy-but-chic chignon.

A deep part was the foundation of Cate Blanchett’s retro-inspired faux-bob, and Kerry Washington’s hair was given a side part before being coiffed into shiny, loose waves.

Other stars who wore the trend include Reese Witherspoon, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Margot Robbie, Kaley Cuoco and Sarah Paulson.

To get the look at home, use a rat tail comb to get a precise line. Then, if you want a voluminous final look, apply a soft hold mousse, like Oscar Blandi Hair Lift Mousse and for a sleek final ‘do, go for a shine serum like Alterna’s Caviar Anti-Aging Polishing Serum.

Sandra Bullock In Prabal Gurung – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Sandra Bullock In Prabal Gurung - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Sandra Bullock continued her rather new love affair with colour at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday evening (January 12).

The ‘Gravity’ star and best actress nominee continued to step outside the lines of her style comfort zone in a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2014 high-low gown, which she wore with black, ankle-strap sandals.

Seeing the sharply tailored, lookbook version of this pink, black and baby-blue colour-block design immediately made me miss the punctuation of the white belt. It also cast a spotlight on some unfortunate wrinkles and rumples that appeared in Sandy’s dress.

That said, she looked beautiful with her soft, blushing makeup and fuchsia lip that played off the pastel pink in her ensemble. I was also delighted to see her brunette locks refreshingly swept into a side-parted low ponytail.

Sandra Bullock In Burberry Prorsum – BAFTA LA 2014 Awards Season Tea Party

Sandra Bullock In Burberry Prorsum - BAFTA LA 2014 Awards Season Tea Party

It’s the second event in a row that Sandra Bullock has opted for Burberry Prorsum, but the looks couldn’t be more different. Yesterday evening (January 11) the red carpet favourite opted for pre-fall 2014 top and skirt for the BAFTA LA 2014 Awards Season Tea Party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverley Hills, Los Angeles.

At the AFI Awards the previous evening Sandra had opted for an ultra-feminine nude look from the runway but last night, Sandra released her inner rock chick, which quite frankly, I love.

The on-trend midi length, figure-hugging skirt and printed t-shirt broke the rules of red carpet dressing for all the right reasons.

A pair of Casadei black suede and mesh pumps, big jewel necklace and smoky eyes all add up to one hell of an evening look.

The only alteration would be the bag. I really think a clutch would have been so much more chic, do you agree?

And with the awards season just about to kick off, is this our biggest indiacation yet as to what Sandra will be wearing to the big awards this season?

Sandra Bullock In Burberry Prorsum – AFI Awards 2014

Sandra Bullock In Burberry Prorsum - AFI Awards 2014

Sandra Bullock also attended the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The ‘Gravity’ actress wore a skirt and top from the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 paired with nude Brian Atwood ‘Tamara’ shoes.

Sandra is gearing up for a big award season (she already won a People’s Choice Award on Wednesday, and she’s nominated for a Golden Globe), and I love that she looks chic, but is still taking it a little easy for this event.

The outfit is classic without any fuss, and her beautiful hair is shiny and equally effortless.

I do love the pop of green with the shoes on the runway, but Sandy’s Atwoods are classic and a great match to the top.

Get The Look: Sanda Bullock’s Rosy Spring Beauty Look

Sandra BullockThis past weekend, Sandra Bullock wowed all at the 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in a fresh-faced, rosy beauty look that has me itching for spring. Although this bubbly pink combination might feel a little too young, Sandra’s look reads more mature with a subtle smoky eye and sleek hair. Here are some simple tips to achieve this rosy, updated look.

Eyes: Sandra opted for a sultry bronze smoky eye look. To achieve this softly dramatic look, try Lancome’s Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Bronze Amour. Apply the medium brown shade from the lash line to the crease, softly blending color onto the lid. The must-have makeup artist tip to open up eyes with color is to place a light shimmery champagne shade around the tear duct, as Sandra did with this look. Pick up the lightest shade in the palette and apply accordingly. Pack a liner brush with the shimmery dark chocolate shade and apply to the top and lower lash line. Finally, coat lashes with the luxurious Smokey Extravagant Mascara by Make Up For Ever. The tapered edge of the wand allows you to coat every lash.

Face: The star of Sandra’s pink beauty look is her masterfully blended rosy blush. Make sure not to pick up a shade that is too pink, as that can be too youthful and out of place. To take the guesswork out of picking, celebrity makeup superstar, Edward Bess has created a blush that mimics a natural flushed look with a touch of color. His Blush Extraordinaire comes in three flattering colors which makes choosing the perfect pink tone effortless. Pack some color on to a fluffy blush brush, pat on your hand to remove the intensity on the brush and softly apply to the apples of your cheek, blending outwards.

Lips: Sandra’s pink lipstick made her lips appear pillow soft. To get this look yourself, try a lipstick in a creamy blend like YSL’s Rouge Voupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in 9 Caress Pink. The muted pink tone provides the ideal pink shade that compliments this rosy look well.

Will you dare to try this soft spring look?
