Oscar-worthy beauty requires weeks, sometimes months of preparation before the big event. Think about it… a million blinding flashbulbs popping in front of you, people screaming your name and paps with HD lenses zooming in on your flaws, all waiting to get that one shot that is less than flattering, so they can splash it across front pages the world over.

So, as you can imagine, there is much pressure to look amazing at the Oscars – one must be picture-perfect. And these stars nailed it.
