Michaela Jaé Rodriguez’s fluffy, pixie-like dress takes center stage here, of course, but the beauty elements in her look help tie it all together — most notably the elegant, almond-shaped nails in a warm-toned nude shade.Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Striking the best contrast with her houndstooth jacket, Natasha Lyonne’s trademark copper hair color is already trending for summer. It’s a brighter tone than the reds of last year, made even more interesting by the blunt-cut ends of her “mushroom bangs” — they literally point to her cheekbones.Theo Wargo/WireImage/Getty Images
After a sweet Orange Is The New Black reunion with former costar Natasha Lyonne, Dascha Polanco hit the red carpet to show off her steely silver eyeshadow and casually elegant updo. The deep side part and gently-curled, free-flowing tendril could dress up even the most straightforward buns.Theo Wargo/WireImage/Getty Images
Lea Michele took a quick break from Broadway to hit the event, looking poised on the red carpet. Though thought of as a fall tone, Michele’s russet brown eyeshadow matches her leather dress and further proves that brown will be the beauty color of summer 2023.Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
It doesn’t get sleeker or chicer than SNL star Ego Nwodim’s center-parted bob and glowy makeup. The well-blended, face-framing layers add shape and movement to the shoulder-length cut, while the tones in her rosy blush compliment her glossy lip color.Theo Wargo/WireImage/Getty Images
Short bangs and even micro-bangs are trending, and Rowan Blanchard’s set prove why. Though they hit barely above the eyebrows, that inch of clearance is all it takes to add some distinct French flair to the elegant updo.Theo Wargo/WireImage/Getty Images
For her Variety look, Sherri Shepherd threw it back to the 2000s with a teased pouf at the crown of her hair and fun, hot-pink nails. The look feels both a little nostalgic but still supremely trendy thanks to the outsized influence the aughts have in beauty.Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Kelly Ripa largely stayed true to her usual beauty go-tos — and her bright pink dress — on the red carpet, with a soft, spring-friendly pink lipstick. But it’s her bronze eyeshadow, always a smart move to emphasize blue eyes thanks to the complementary tones, that does most of the legwork here.Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Aidy Bryant’s tulip-pink lipstick stands out on the red carpet for a few reasons: it’s a perfect match to her blush, the blue undertone suits her wildly well, and it’s thematically ideal for the spring season. Theo Wargo/WireImage/Getty Images
The metallic ruffles in Rosie Perez’s red carpet dress are a subtle but excellent match to the chrome finish in her pearly nail color. Proving she’s got an eye for beauty trends, her curtain bangs also happen to be the perfect length to blend with her curls.Dimitrios Kambouris/Variety/Getty Images
