This year will mark the 90th anniversary of the film industry's annual Academy Awards ceremony -- an event that has played host to Hollywood's brightest stars since 1929. We take a look at the ways in which the beauty looks seen on its red carpet have evolved over the decades.

4. Cher

Singer Cher proved she was one step ahead at the 2000 ceremony, sporting a sculpted curly updo and holographic eye makeup.

She is the queen of the tousled chignon, but in 2007 Nicole Kidman switched things up with a poker-straight ‘do and a fierce red lip.


8. Penelope Cruz

Blunt bangs, a glamorous chignon and a metallic-themed makeup look served Penelope Cruz well in 2009.
