RealTalk with Faatemah: Lights, Cameras, Oscars!Everyone appreciates a good movie, but no one LOVES movie stars more than hairstylists and makeup artists! I was thrilled to finally see hair and makeup on the ballot. BRAVO on this historic moment! Here are my "sails and fails" of the evening.

I sat, glass of wine in one hand, cell phone in the other, so I could do side bar commentary with other notable stylists such as Charlie Price, Ted Gibson and Jason Backe. I was so delighted to see visions of old Hollywood flair.RealTalk with Faatemah: Lights, Cameras, Oscars!


SAILS
Charlize Theron was the epitome of chic sophistication with an edge. Her short hair made an impact that I predict will affect spring trend. Ladies don't be afraid chop the locks and give great face.

Another "sail" was Adele, who was absolutely stunning with her Bridgette Bardo-ish hair and retro monochromatic smokey eye!  She was brilliant from head to toe.

FAILS
Melissa McCarthy’s big, backcombed retro-inspired style was a fail for me.

Kelly Osbourne's lavender locks were impressive but that black bobby pin in her hair was awkward for me. I'd suggest a vintage broach instead.

Last, but not least, Helena Bonham Carter’s bed head and yards of fabric made me dizzy.
