This year’s exciting awards season officially came to an end tonight (until September, of course!) with the arrival of the 2015 Academy Awards. It’s a night we look forward to for emotional acceptance speeches that make you feel things, celeb-spotting on the carpet, and a whole lot of glam. After scrolling through our Instagram feed all day looking for sneak peeks from stylists and celebs, we couldn’t wait to tune into the red carpet and gather what we thought were the standout looks of the occasion. This year, and to no surprise at that, celebrities attended the prestigious and highly-anticipated event debuting hair and makeup looks on the red carpet that left us completely speechless.

While it was a given that we’d see at least one ‘do of Old Hollywood Waves (it IS a Tinseltown favorite, after all), stars played up a few unexpected trends as well. Celebrities like Rosamund Pike and Zoe Saldana chose to wear their tresses up in textured updos, while Chrissy Teigen and Naomi Watts took a step outside the realm of red lipstick, opting for a darker, vampy shade. Click through to see some of the best beauty looks of the evening.

For the Academy Awards, Marion Cotillard went with an updo with a deep-side part, a classic cat-eye, and a ballerina pink lipstick shade that matched the light pink blush she wore on the apples of her cheeks.

Blunt bangs for the win, Oscar nominee Felicity Jones highlighted her major fringe with a textured, twisted coif. Black eyeliner won yet again, as she rocked lined lids with a stunning matte complexion and nude lipstick.

Bringing the bold lip to the Academy Awards, Naomi Watts worked a vampy deep berry lipstick shade with her tousled, beachy waves and just a touch of color on her cheeks.

Lupita Nyong'o complemented her pearl-adorned Calvin Klein gown with pearlescent and metallic eyeshadow hue that she used to line her lower lash line as well. This Oscar-winner always brings it to the red carpet.

Not everyone went for that undone updo! Best Actress nominee Julianne Moore walked the carpet with a sleek bun (without a flyaway in sight, by the way) fastened at the nape of her neck. She kept her makeup relatively simple with rose-hued lipstick and super fluttery lashes.

Chrissy Teigen totally wowed the crowd at the 2015 Academy Awards with her Old Hollywood Glam waves and vampy lipstick that really brought out the blonde highlights of her gorgeous tresses.

While many celebrities opted for an updo for this prestigious occasion, Sienna Miller gave hers a twist, literally! She wore an updo that featured twisted details on either side of her head with a smoldering charcoal smoky eye. We're forever crushin' on this gal's locks.

Zoe Saldana lined her upper and lower lashes with glowy white eyeliner and pulled her hair back her curly tendrils back into a romantic, ultra feminine hairstyle.
