Braids, Brows and Bouffants at the CFDAs

Wed, 9 June 2010 10:16AM

When Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Stam are all sharing the same red carpet (RC), you know there’s going to be some kind of spectacular beauty moment that sees you pulling out your pen and inspiration pad and jotting these looks down. All three were at the CFDA Fashion Awards, Primpers and they absolutely did not disappoint. Take a look…

Here’s SJP, rocking the mad bouffant and some seriously amazing eye makeup…

I’m loving the tie in of the eye makeup and the purple dress Parkster is wearing here. The eye shadow is soft, slightly smoky and makes her blue eyes look ridiculously blue. Loving that! Her hair is rather delightful, too, Primpers, with all that height at the top and the softly backcombed texture we love so much, it’s a massive winner.


Next up we have Gwyneth Paltrow and her super sleek ponytail…

Gwynny always makes a pony look so in-place on the RC. It’s neat, tidy and not at all stiff which is exactly how a high ponytail should be. Awesome. Her makeup here is also simple and slightly bronzed, rocking the nude tones and black eyeliner like the pro that she is.


And finally, we have Jessica Stam and her side braid and massively bold brows…

Now I’m all for bold, thicker brows but here, Jess’s are too thick for me. They’re MASSIVE. Jess honey, I totes understand why you’re laughing. I am too. Her makeup on the other hand, is really fresh, natural and perfectly bronzed in a wonderfully matte way. The braid is a massive win, although I would have like to see a little more texture on her ends.


Tell me Primpers, who do you crown the most massively awesome here?
Do you agree that Jess’s brows are too thick or do you like them?
What about SJP, you like her look?
Oh, and don’t forget Gwyneth, we love her too.

    Dear SJP, you are a goddess. Can you please send me some of your uber-on-trend-coolness ? Thanks, we shall be best friends forever. x
    Gwynny looks pretty, a little plain for the RC maybe?
    Totes agree Yaz, Jess’ brows look like hungry, hairy caterpilliars. No deal.

    It’s seems ( To me ) that Jessica always the most wicked case of dark circles bordering on two black eyes ! and those eyebrows just accentuate said eye issue . Love a braid though – and she’s stunning otherwise …
