Highlights Beauty Blitz
HIT: Amanda Seyfried attributed her photogenic flair to Anne Hathaway (“She's a really good poser, and I've been studying her pose," she told Ryan Seacrest), but we think it’s all in her hair. Those caramel-gold swirled waves do it for us.
MISS: Heidi Klum's color is a throwback to when highlights were called “streaks” and women went to the beauty parlor.Photo by: Getty Images
Dewy Skin Beauty Blitz
HIT: Nicole Kidman's complexion is driving us to the facialist with one demand, "We’ll have what she’s having."
MISS: Jennifer Lopez looks youthful and beautiful in a way that makes you want to clear out the L’Oreal aisle at CVS. But nobody is immune to the greasies, which is why some pros give clients a powdered puff to carry for touchups.

Silver Fox Beauty Blitz
HIT: Tina Fey said it best, "This next presenter makes the young George Clooney look like garbage. Introducing the middle-aged George Clooney."
MISS: 30 shades of gray?Photo by: Getty Images
Comeback Color Beauty Blitz
HIT: And just like that, bridesmaids everywhere are suddenly demanding seafoam green dresses. Jessica Chastain’s Calvin Klein Collection dress breathed new life into a stale hue.
MISS: Kaley Cuoco's oxblood lips are so fall 2012. Next to everyone else's airy pastels and tropical birghts, her look was dated.Photo by: Getty Images
Facial Hair Beauty Blitz
HIT: Tina’s makeup artist Gita Bass based the arrival look on “a sexy vixen in a Jessica Rabbit dress.” But Tina gave herself a moustache makeover during the show.

Updo Beauty Blitz
HIT: From actual scarab beetles in her earrings to a sky-hgh combover, Julianne Hough rocked her risks.
MISS: "Do you guys think my hair is too high?" Eva Longoria tweeted before the show. (Side note: Her dress slit may have upstaged Angelina Jolie's right leg and its Twitter account, @AngiesRightLeg.)Photo by: Getty Images
Orange Beauty Blitz
HIT: Jessica Alba’s tropical tangerine lips were the perfect mismatch to her peach Oscar de la Renta gown. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip,” said makeup artist Lauren Andersen, who used Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera, a velvety matte formula.
MISS: Marion Cotillard's lizard-skin shoes. Not our favorite moment.Photo by: Getty Images
Blue Eye Makeup Beauty Blitz

Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez used Lancome Color Design Infinite 24H Eye Shadow in Evermore Lilac, Lancome Color Design Eye Shadow in Mochaccino, Lancome Artliner in Smoke, Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara.
MISS: Nicole Richie sparkled in this Naeem Khan dress, but the intense powdery blue shadow (which would be great alone) was too distracting.Photo by: Getty Images
Pixie Beauty Blitz
HIT: Golden Globe winner Anne Hathaway wore a strapless Chanel gown and an equally classic hairstyle inspired by 90s Chanel ads. Fekkai hairstylist Adir Abergel added texture with his fingers, along with Fekkai COIFF Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and Fekkai COIFF Nonchalant Piecing & Forming Wax.

MISS: Dark shadow on the lower rims makes you look tired. Oh yeah, wait, isn't she a new mom?Photo by: Getty Images
Plunging Neckline Beauty Blitz

Leg Up Beauty Blitz
HIT: Lea Michele’s Elie Saab halter gown and glistening skin make the her exposed leg a winner.
MISS: When it comes to skintone, you do want to be matchy-matchy. The pale leg and darker face seem off. That said, Rosie Huntington-Whitley still looks stunning in her Saint Laurent Paris gown.Photo by: Getty Images
Twirled Hair Beauty Blitz
HIT: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s hairstylist Cervando used Vidal Sassoon Pro Series to create a “modern Parisian” look with a rolled twist of hair. The verdict: “Oui, oui! S'il vous plait.”
