The Oscars elicit imagery of old Hollywood glamor, like Veronica Lake’s retro wave cascade. Typically, today’s celebs either recreate these looks faithfully, or change it up completely with newfangled fashions. But Jennifer Garner managed an elegant juxtaposition between the old and the new with this soft and sultry, side-swept wave. It pays homage to the asymmetrical shape of the vintage waves of Tinsel Town, yet features a much softer, free-flowing feeling than those carved and controlled ‘S’ shapes; and rather than being tucked all the way back, the short side of the part is left loose, for a subtly askew face-frame.
