Reese Witherspoon injects color into an all-white look, Keira Knightley perfects the bombshell-gamine mix, and Jennifer Lawrence epitomizes the classic Dior girl. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week for brides to be:
Jennifer Lawrence at the Los Angeles Premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1: Loose tendrils in front of your face can go one of two ways: really chic or really cheesy. J. Law, naturally, nailed the really chic. How she did it? By keeping them light, wispy, and with just enough texture — not too spirally and not too thick. Her cropped locks come together in the back as an undone bouffant, and she paired it with what seems to be one of her favorite (and super pretty) makeup looks: black eye liner, long lashes, rosy cheeks, and light pink lipstick. Why mess with a good thing? (Especially when it comes to big events like red carpet premieres and, you know, weddings.)
Reese Witherspoon at the Los Angeles Premiere of Wild: When wearing a white dress, try livening up your look with makeup. Reese pulls this off perfectly with poppy red lips. (And those jaw-dropping sapphire earrings don't hurt, either.) Finished with a '60s, side-swept chignon, Reese looks every part the glamorous screen siren.
Keira Knightley at the 18th Annual Hollywood Film Awards: Keira avoided looking too done (yes, there is such a thing) by pairing retro, Old Hollywood-inspired waves with neutral, modern makeup. Full, groomed brows also add a freshness to her look (and totally give us gamine, Audrey Hepburn-esque vibes.) Dark eye makeup can sometimes make your eyes seem sunken in, but subtle white shimmer in the corners of Keira's eyes ensures she looks bright and wide-eyed.
