Grazia's Beauty Oscars: Winners and losers from last night

23 February 2009

Wowza, awards season is finally coming to an end and yet again, we're passing judgement on who totally aced and totally bombed-out on their Oscars beauty look last night...

Best overall look


Claire Danes at the 17th Annual Elton John Foundation Oscar Party. Whatever you're doing Claire, we are so green with envy it's killing us. With the milky skin, honeyed, retro-wave hair and hint of sunset-coloured blusher – it's just all going right.

Best newcomer


Frieda Pinto has a hard job being a newby on the red carpet scene, but anyone who has the wisdom to pick classic, understated elegance over a 'look-at-me-style' in their first awards ceremony season gets our respect. Nice tendrils escaping from that up-do too.

Surprise award


Well, well, well, Natalie Portman manages to pull of something we had previously thought impossible... the matchy-matchy eyes to dress. In any usual circumstance, we would advise against purple eye liner and a purple dress but somehow, this totally works – and it totally brings out the colour of Natalie's eyes.

Best colour pop


Camilla Belle, you are rocking some serious make-up looks right now – that pomegranate lip with a bit of a shimmer is making us swoon.

And those poor old losers...

Penélope Cruz - With THAT pixie fringe and THAT up-do we have just one question: Do you EVER ring the changes?

Helena Christensen – has your boxing work-out gone astray or is that purple blusher you're wearing?

- Bella Blissett
