The past 12 months have seen a whole of host of seriously stunning beauty looks- from matte red lips to Gatsby inspired retro waves, red carpets the world over have been awash with an impressive repertoire of hair and make-up looks. Although it’s a tricky feat for us beauty ladies, we managed to whittle down our favourites from the past 12 months. Click through our gallery and get ready for some serious beauty nostalgia. Bring on 2014, we say…
The 15 Best Red Carpet Beauty Looks Of 2013
GALLERY >> Best Red Carpet Beauty Of 2013
Jessica Alba’s Coral Lips At The Golden Globes, January
What better way to wave good riddance to the January blues with a nice pop of colour on your lips? We gave our full beauty marks to the gorgeous Jessica as she walked down the red carpet at The Golden Globes. Complete with an incredible retro side-parting and voluminous waves, this beauty look got our year off to a great start.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Side-Swept Look At The Golden Globes, January
Starlet Rosie also took centre stage at this years’ Golden Globes and pulled out all the stops with this stunningly sophisticated hairdo. Little did we know that the whole slicked-back, wet-look hair was going to be big beauty news in 2013…
Anne Hathaway’s Pixie Crop At The Oscars, February
Might this be the classic pixie cut of 2013? We think so. And we LOVE.
Kate Bosworth’s Matte Red Lip, April
We were loving all the matte lip looks this year, although we think Kate Bosworth pulled it off to absolute perfection at the San Fransisco International Film Festival back in April. Looking every inch the vintage vixen, this look gave us all some serious beauty inspiration.
Jennifer Lawrence’s Tousled Hair at the GLAAD Media Awards in LA, April
This year has been quite the year for J-Law and her hair. Before her pixie crop set in, this was our fave of Jen’s 2013 hairstyles. Unlike anything she’s ever pulled off, this relaxed style was not only red-carpet ready but also seriously sophisticated. Topped off with a super-smokey eye and nude lipstick, this was one hot look. Way to go, Jen!
Cheryl Cole’s Plum Beauty In Cannes, May
This year has certainly been the year for plum-hued eyes and our Chezza certainly did this look in red carpet-worthy style back in May at the Cannes Film Festival. We love.
Carey Mulligan’s Platinum Hair In Cannes, May
All eyes were on Carey’s platinum-hued tresses during the Cannes Film Festival and us blonde beauty ladies took serious note. We think this lighter hue really makes Carey’s skin tone pop and we love her red lip too.
Sienna Miller’s Choppy Fringe At The BAFTAS, May
No beauty roundup would be complete without the appearance of blonde beauty Sienna Miller. We fell head over heels for her amazing tousled fringe with matching bun at the BAFTAS. Teamed with a smokey eye, this could just be beauty perfection!
Nicole Kidman’s Up-do At The Nebraska Premiere, May
The minute we caught sight of starlet Nicole’s incredible Grace-Kelly inspired updo we were in serious beauty heaven. We literally couldn’t stop swooning over Miss Kidman’s sleek chignon and love the way it highlights her delicate features. Topped off with a flawless complexion, beautifully groomed brows and petal-pink lips and cheeks, we reckon Miss Kidman could well give Miss Kelly a run for her money!
Kate Moss At The Serpentine Summer Party, June
Trust Kate Moss to get her beauty look bang-on, even on the balmiest of summer evenings. We reckon la Moss looked totally stunning at the Serpentine Summer Party back in June and love how she made a smoky eye work, even in the summer. Take note, ladies!
Khloe Kardashian’s Vampy Lips At the launch of Chrome, June
Although we love every single one of the Kardashian sisters, we reckon 2013 might just be the year for Khloe who pulled off some incredible beauty looks over the past 12 months. Our fave? Her pared-down skin and perfectly vampy lips at the launch of the Kardashian beauty range in June. Way to go, Khloe!
Lily Collins’ Gothic Beauty, August
24-year old Lily Collins has been on our beauty radar big time this year. This might just be our favourite beauty look from the stunning actress- check out those brows! Stay tuned for 2014 ladies- we predict great things…
Millie Mackintosh’s Wedding Beauty, September
We waited for what felt like an age for MIC babe Millie Mackintosh’s wedding to Professor Green- team Grazia beauty had bets on her hair, make-up and dress, and we were thrilled to say that the new Mrs Green exceeded our beauty expectations in every single way possible back in September. Blushing bride of the year, we say!
January Jones’ Retro Waves At The Emmy Awards, September
We loved every single one of the Gatsby-inspired beauty looks this year following the release of the movie, although this might just possibly be our fave. We fell head over heels for January’s retro finger-waves and couldn’t get enough of her cute silvery plum eye-shadow too. Cute!
Taylor Swift’s Emerald Eyes At The Radio 1 Teen Awards, November
We’ve had our beady beauty eyes on Tay-Swift all year long, but there was just something about this look which got us all green-eyed. If you’re getting a little bored of the ubiquitous smokey eye then make like Taylor and mix things up with some emerald tones.
