11 looks from the 2018 Oscars to inspire your spring dance vibe

The Oscars showcase the best in the movie biz, but we're here to showcase the best in beauty. These 2018 looks are super easy to replicate for prom and even allow room to add your own flair. Whether you show your stylist a picture of Zendaya's up-do or pull out your latest eyeshadow palette to copy Emma Stone's blush eyes, prom will be a breeze with these Oscars-inspired looks!


Allison Williams's (Get Out) glamorous waves take us back in time to 1950's Hollywood. The waves can frame any face perfectly. And tucking some hair behind your ear will be a great way to showcase your ear bling.

Danai Gurira (Black Panther) combined sweet and edgy with her pink dress and shimmering hair tattoo. This added the ultimate sparkle to her look in a really unique way. It's safe to say she shined all night long!

Zendaya's bun is a prom *must*. Her sleek top-knot was a total standout. Paired with statement earrings, this look is totally doable for your big night.

Forget about finding the perfect jewelry to match your dress. Instead, add these gold braid cords to your up-do. Lupita Nyong'o looked like a queen with this makeshift crown and you'll totally be the prom princess with this look.

This elegant bun is giving us Cinderella vibes! From the front, Emily Blunt's (Mary Poppins) hair is swept back and teased just a little. This understated style allows for unlimited makeup choices and compliments every prom look. 

Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) blunt bob truly wowed us. If you're looking for something some soft and elegant, but unique at the same time, this is *definitely* your look. Her pin-straight hair is super easy to replicate and a fresh haircut will leave you feeling renewed before the big night.


Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) is serving us bold looks with her retro metallic cat eye. Paired with the burnt orange lip, her face is unforgettable. Her waves are just the icing on the cake. This Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette can help you achieve the smokey look that your friends will be fawning over.

Emma Stone's stylist was inspired by her outfit and decided to give her power-blush eyes. The pink hues on her eyes and lips, paired with her satin raspberry pantsuit shows off #GirlBoss side. This eye and face palette is the perfect combo to replicate this look for prom. 


Gal Gadot's (Wonder Woman) plunging dress is amazing, but her statement necklace is the real gem. If your dress has a deep cut, this is the perfect way to make sure you pop in comparison to everyone else. Whether it's a big stone like Gal's or a layered and delicate piece like this from Forever21, it's sure to be a hit.

This clutch compliments this dress perfectly, with the little flower details adding a delicate touch! For prom, make sure you get something big enough to hold your phone and some lip color for touch-ups (and maybe a couple of Band-Aids for the inevitable blisters you'll get on your feet). 

And we could never forget about the nails. This look is the definition of go bold or go home. Add some nail decals to really show off your personality. And feel free to throw a ring on every finger; the metallic pairing gives the look an edgy-yet-girly vibe.
