Amy Adams steals the show in the latest Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue, due for national release next week. Her glamorous gown and elegant pose are framed by a vintage Hollywood wave, the signature look of the leading ladies of the 40s and 50s. With one side of the hairstyle tucked behind the ear, the ‘do creates beatifying face-face-framing asymmetry. Yet the real magic is the ‘C’-shaped waves falling romantically off the shoulder. It encourages the eyes to look all around the face frame, taking in cheekbones, chin, lips and eyes. A little softer and less severe than the original interpretations of this style, Amy’s take puts the best of old world allure with modern beauty trends.

Saint Laurent has always been associated with glamour, a notion that was brought back at last week’s surprise couture show in Paris. The show offered a heavy dose of ‘80s glamour, utilizing more-is-more in terms of beauty. Strong slicked back strands, dark eye makeup, and crimson pouts called to mind the YSL of that decade and created an overall powerful look. Will this new style at Saint Laurent inspire the runways to rethink the natural girl vibe that has governed the scene for the last decade? I can’t say, but who doesn’t love a chance to play dress up.

Glamorous waves combined with a stylistic side-part is a classic and romantic style. The face-framing asymmetry and the cascading curls will never go out of fashion because it’s one of the best styles for framing features, like eyes, cheekbones, lips and chin. In days gone by this look would have been created with a roller set; nowadays, though, instead of having to set hair over several hours, or even overnight, you can use hot-tools to make this look as quick as a flash.
