What’s the latest Oscar buzz? Well, brace yourselves, fashionistas! The Academy Awards is just two weeks away (and counting) on March 2nd!! But, until then, we found the BEST fix to satisfy our demanding needs!!
On Saturday, the “Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists (MUAHS) Guild (IATSE Local 706) Awards” honored excellence in 14 categories of motion pictures, television, commercials and live theater. We caught all of the (stylish) action at the black-tie ceremony at Paramount Studios in Hollywood!!
