    In the blink of an eye, the Oscars 2019 are over and done with, marking the end of this year’s award season.

    Rami Malek and Olivia Colman cleaned up when it came to the winners’ list, while Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga had everyone in awe of their performance of Shallow from A Star is Born.

    And as ever, the red carpet was jam-packed with incredible sartorial moments and beautiful hair and make-up looks galore.

    Gemma Chan went full Killing Eve in an enormous bright pink Valentino affair, while Lady Gaga chanelled her inner Audrey Hepburn in Alexander McQueen, wearing the same diamond the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star wore 58 years before her.

    But when it came to beauty, there was one hairstyle that reigned champion over and over again: The humble bob.

    Emilia Clarke, Charlize Theron, Irina Shayk and more all pulled no punches in the hair department, proving that this timeless style isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
