It's not all about the ingenues tonight! Although all eyes are on starlets like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, and Anne Hathaway for their gorgeous hair and makeup choices, seasoned red carpet vets are bringing just as much glamour to the 2013 Oscars. Between their perfectly-styled strands and glowing complexions, the winning looks worn by Helen Hunt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Aniston, and Naomi Watts are among our favorites. Each star opted out of dramatic lipsticks, eye shadows, and updos to allow their ensembles to take center stage. "I was inspired to keep Halle's look very tonal and casual with this dress, because it's a very striking and bold look," said Berry's makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua. "She was presenting the James Bond tribute, and the dress is very Bond Girls—it's kind of like wearing a Cadillac!" According to the red carpet pros, less is more! We want to know: Whose look was your favorite? Tell us in the comments!
