Sunday night was the grand finale to an eventful awards season a.k.a the Academy Awards. Hollywood’s best and brightest took a bold approach to beauty; with fashion standouts and killer makeup from the unforgettable to the adventurous .
Danai Gurira topped off an elegant winter white, halter column dress at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party with her matching hair tattoo and Chimamanda went for subtle glam to keep the focus on her flawless dress. Need more proof that African stars killed it on the red carpet?

Danai Gurira’s Oscar looks – both to the main event and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party already have the BellaNaijaStyle seal of approval but the brick red lip on this look by makeup artist Tym Buacharern really stole the night.
We’ve already discussed Lupita’s phenomenal beauty look here, and as always Lancôme did not disappoint with her makeup. Nick Barose opted for a subtle wash of colour with a metallic eyeshadow on her lids and lower lash line, and a swipe of coppery-nude lip gloss completed her Oscars glam. Her lit-from-within glow? Well that’s all Lupita.
Looking as gorgeous as always, Chimamanda Adichie and her makeup artist Mecca Dickerson decided on a barely there makeup look – a nudey orange lip and eyeshadow of a similar palette – a perfect complement to her stunning Dior dress.
