The Fairest: Post-Oscars…and Lady Gaga & Beyonce’s Telephone Video!
What did you think of the Oscars? (Did we call The Hurt Locker, or what?) Hands-down, our favorite glamour gal of the night was Cameron Diaz, who proved that women (like fine wine—or Johnny Depp!) get better as they mature. At the Samsung viewing party we attended at the Four Seasons, there were audible gasps as she walked the carpet, and we heard her name-checked all night as looking particularly divine.
We snooped a bit to find out the secret behind Cameron’s gorgeous ‘do—perfectly old Hollywood, particularly set off against her strapless gold beaded Oscar de la Renta gown—and discovered that her stylist Lona Vigi achieved the Rita Hayworth-esque waves by using LiQWD Professional Volumizing Catalyst (also the secret behind Vera Farmiga’s softly tousled updo) and followed with Velecta Paramount Paris TGR 4000 blow-dryer. (Read more about her look here on the LA Times’ All the Rage blog.)
Meanwhile, in other beauty news, have you seen Lady Gaga and Beyonce‘s Quentin Tarantino-inspired video for Telephone yet? It debuted yesterday, immediately set Twitter afire, and is sure to spawn countless YouTube imitations and beauty blog-recreations. See it for yourself here! (What do you think: weird or genius?)
