Wil's Fierce Five: Hair Stylist, Makup Artist and Style coach Wil Strayhorn

            “GLITZ! GLAM! & GORGEOUSNESS!”

 The Oscar Red Carpet was a star-studded sea of Hollywood's most celebrated A-Listers.  Most donned gorgeous hair, exquisite jewelry, flawless makeup and stunning evening gowns but how many, in my opinion, got it just right?  Here is the rundown of my “Fierce Five.”

            #5- Viola Davis glowed like a nubian queen as she graced the red carpet wearing a champagne Zac Posen off the shoulder evening gown displaying her glistening milk chocolate skin.  Her hair, natural and in coils, her makeup, tastefully dramatic with a bold deep lip--sealing this amazing look! She has certainly come a long way so “Kudos!” on being inducted into the Fierce Five.

            #4 Lupita Nyongo commanded everyone's attention as she displayed 6,000 hand sewn pearls on a custom, white, open-back gown by Calvin Klein.  The fabric seemed to caress and hug every curve of her body revealing a perfectly toned and well built physique.  As a natural beauty, Lupita was wise to keep her hair simple, makeup light and jewels to an absolute minimum and rightfully so! Can you imagine how much a 6,000 pearl-adorned gown weighs!?

            #3 Kelly Osbourne- “Don't Look Surprised!” I actually loved Kelly Osbourne in her glam-goth Rita Vinieris gown with it's high-low hem line.  Kelly is often snubbed on the red carpet with her sometimes “questionable” fashion choices but call me crazy, “by George I think she's finally got it!”  Her gown was definitely the focal point and everything else kindly played second fiddle. Her makeup, very chic and polished as was her lavender tinted hair sleeked up in a modern, elegant pompadour. She's got my vote!

            #2 Rosamund PikeGone Girl!  I was completely mesmerized by this stunning red custom Givenchy lace dress with high slit.  Against her pale-pink complexion, she looked AMAZING!  The strapless gown perfectly displayed her gorgeous neckline and did you see her waistline!?  The Oscar winner recently had a baby, however the evidence was not visible as she accentuated her tiny waist with a thin red belt. Her neutral toned makeup and brows groomed to sheer perfection gave her a face reminiscent of an angel. Heavenly!

            #1(drum roll please) Jennifer Lopez was the showstopping, eye-popping scene stealing queen of the red carpet.  To me she is a sure fire hit on every red carpet event and again she did not disappoint me. Appearing half princess / half sex siren she wore a spectacular nude colored sparkling tulle gown from Elie Saab. Jennifer left little to the imagination showing skin, skin and more skin with a near-waist plunging neckline.   Romantic, soft and dewy was her choice in makeup and who would blame her? Her dress stole the show!

             The fashion didn't fail to disappoint at this year's Oscars. In an array of elaborate custom-made creations our biggest stars transformed the red carpet into a runway not to be forgotten for many years to come.
