Simple Hair and Makeup
If red carpets of years past showcased dramatic updos and bold makeup choices, Carson says this year was all about simplicity. "Texturized hair was a big trend. Not smooth and glossy like in the past, but matte texture," Carson says. "Like Scarlett Johansson's hair. It's sort of messy, and looks like flyways." Other celebrities that fit the bill, Carson says, were Marisa Tomei and Annette Bening.
