Two celebs, two updos—but the effect couldn’t be more different. At the Extraordinary Measures premiere in Hollywood, Keri Russell pulled her curls back into a loose, low-on-the-head bun. Add low-key earrings and makeup (love that shimmer on her cheeks) and the result? Effortless but chic.
Jessica Simpson, on the other hand, was all about the backcombing, creating a giant 60s-style bouffant and side-parted bangs that fell over one eye. A little heavier on the makeup here, too—black-rimmed eyes and contoured cheeks. (The pouty lips add to the effect.)
So who wins? I’m with Keri on this one. Her look is younger, fresher and MUCH less contrived—it doesn’t seem like she tried too hard, and that’s attractive. Plus, I’ll always prefer a fresh face to a heavily made-up one. I really wish Jess would wear a bit less makeup on the red carpet—underneath all that warpaint she’s a gorgeous girl.
