Hair and style highlights from Unicef Ball

Friday, 22 January 2016  | 

On January 12, celebrities came together at the 2016 UNICEF Ball in Beverly Hills to show their support for charity. The red carpet showcased one style hit after another as the biggest names of the stage and screen wowed the crowds for an excellent cause.

Selena Gomez was arguably the first-place winner in the glamour sweepstakes. Her sexy, curve-hugging Louis Vuitton dress was made entirely of red leather and featured a low cut neckline, zipped front, and flower-shaped cut-outs on the legs. Smoky eye makeup, defined brows, and long, loose hair completed the ensemble.

Although Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez is usually seen as the queen of casual, she was the belle of the ball in a gorgeous red backless dress that boasted a thigh-high slit and plunging neckline. Fitted sleeves, a floor-length hemline, and free-flowing hair made the entire look equal parts daring and sophisticated.

Mariah Carey flaunted her 45-pound weight less on a strapless blue and black gown that complemented her perfect skin and slim figure. She credited aloe vera and olive oil hair masks with giving her long, luscious hairdo its healthy shine.

Nicole Kidman appeared at the ball wearing a daring sequin gown that made her look a lot younger than her 48 years. The classically-cut blue and violet number showed off her long legs and creamy complexion, which glowed amidst the paparazzi camera flashes. Kidman’s signature strawberry blonde tresses were twisted into an elegant chignon, with a few strands loose at one side for added dimension.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr wore a playful metallic mini with a poufy skirt, proudly displaying legs longer than an airport runway. A longer, wavy bob and bright red lipstick made Miranda shine like an upscale party girl ready for a fun night out.

Opting for a simple yet stylish look, Heidi Klum showed off her toned figure in a floor-length, fitted black gown. The low-cut neckline flashed the smallest bit of cleavage, while the fitted waist accentuated her athletic curves. Loose blonde waves completed the understated yet gala-worthy look.

Jennifer Connelly turned heads in a glimmering ruby frock that featured geometric details on the arms and shoulders, a thigh slit, and black hemline rim that complemented her black oxford shoes. Her glossy, pin-straight hair completed the sleek, sophisticated look.
