Red Carpet Hair and Makeup

Fan Bingbing, Nicole Kidman and Lana del Ray at Cannes 2013

Red Carpet Bay Area and MilVali Salon looked to the world of film at the 66th annual Festival de Cannes, aka the Cannes Film Festival, for red carpet hairstyles and makeup inspiration for fall 2013. From some 27,000 glamorous film industry representatives, we chose six beautiful looks to stimulate your style preparation. MilVali hair stylist and makeup artist Larissa Weiss decoded the looks:

Lana Del Reys old Hollywood glamour was achieved with a faux-bob, her longer hair pinned up to look like a bob. The rich chestnut brown color with dramatic cat-eye makeup and neutral lips was a standout.

Heidi Klum stepped out as a fresh-faced California girl with neutral makeup and a side-swept ponytail with dry finger wave.

Nicole Kidman sported a polished faux-hawk ponytail with a clean face and coral lipstick.

Milla Jovovich‘s heavy bangs with rosy cheeks and smoky, sexy eyes achieved a look of undone and effortless charm.

Fan Bingbing‘s trendy bohemian braids and 40s-style makeup were highly appealing with her gold gown by Elie Saab.

Chanel Iman‘s look was apple-pie American, accomplished with an imperfect up-do and barely-there makeup.
