If 2009 taught us anything, it’s that glamour is back in a big way. While stars like Rihanna and Lady Gaga took major risks (some we loved, some not so much), our favorite stars were always pulling out glamorous, elegant looks that will remain in our memories. These are the 5 looks we loved in 2009.
2009 was Kate’s award-winning year not only for her incredible acting ability, but on every red carpet she graced. Her sophisticated and timeless look at the 2009 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards is one for the history books.
Taraji P. Henson
We loved this sleek bob hairstyle on Ms. Henson at the Academy Awards. Her gorgeous smoky eye and powder-pink lip was fresh and clean, perfect to show off the star’s natural beauty.
The Sherlock Holmes star’s French braid was definitely grown-up with a bit of texture and volume— can you say ooh-la-la?
For her appearance at the premiere of G.I. Joe , we were dazzled by Sienna’s soft waves that were very reminiscent of Veronica Lake.
The reality star/designer/author made many appearances rocking a bold lip. This retro-inpsired makeup look proved the red lip will always be chic.
