Battle of the Blondes: Rita Ora’s hair vs. Rihanna’s hair

Different shades of blond, same kind of pose
Stars copying their predecesors is nothing new, but entertainment writers make it seem that way when referring to Rita Ora and Rihanna. The first “R” has even been called The British Rihanna. While they don’t look exactly alike, they have similar tastes such as low-cut gowns, little tats on their left sides and long blond curls. As for the differences, their light haircolors are not the same here: Rita poses in a Marilyn-like platinum and RiRi wears a hard-to-define blond all her own. The texture varies, too. Rita’s hair is smooth and polished and Rihanna’s full and loose!

Their blond hair color and Beanies are nearly the same!
Earlier this year, the singers were photographed in trendy Beanies and bleached blond. Since then Rita has topped the Vodafone Big Top 40 for a second week with her debut single R.I.P. Hence, the continued comparisons between Rita and the global superstar.

While their cat eyes are not identical, is their hair color?
It’s hard to tell, because  these images are captured in different settings. Rihanna’s hair has a hint of butter color, but that may be due to the natural lighting.

In the end, these questions aren’t important. It’s not a crime to emulate famous names from the past. Just think of all the women who have tried to look like Marilyn Monroe: Madonna, Christina Aguielera, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Michelle Williams and many more actresses.

What’s more interesting is whether Rita will continue to be labeled the new Rihanna and whether she will end up with a fraction of RiRi’s fame!

Academy Award-winning hairstyles: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence & Michelle Williams

 

Natalie Portman not only won the Oscar for best actress, she won top honors in our prettiest hairstyles of the night. She swept her mane to one side and let the loose curls spill over the shoulder. Another award-winning look was Scarlett Johansson’s new mid-length bob full of tousled waves and curls. Any other day, Scarlett would probably leave her hair straight to show off the blunt cut.

Amy Adams chose to go glam like Natalie, but her wavy curls were released all over, caressing the cheek on one side and going back on the other. Jennifer Lawrence looked nothing like her character from Winter’s Bone. Her hair and makeup draw the line between the real-life actress and the fictional mountain girl. Her hair is similar to Amy’s yet different. While the redhead has defined waves, the blonde’s are unstructured except for the curled ends.

Michelle Williams landed in our best-tressed competition, as she continues to revel in a daring pixie. Ever-changing haircolor keeps the short cut fresh. Recently, Michelle has gone blonder and blonder ending up in a platinum hue reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe.

This is just a short list of our Academy Award-winning hair fashions. For more, stay tuned!   

 

Carey Mulligan’s hair: an education in style

Carey Mulligan barely resembles the young schoolgirl she played in An Education. Her transformation started right the Oscars 2010. That night Carey stood out for two reasons: her leading actress nomination and her barely-there blond haircut (below right). As you can see, the sudden star wasn’t content to stay with the pixie even though it was adorable! She has grown her hair out a tad, but it looks quite different. With that little bit of extra length, Ms. Mulligan can wear her hair windswept, braided to one side, conservative, sexy, sophisticated… you get the idea! 

It’s hard to believe that Carey in a mop top (right) is the same person as Carey the Academy Award nominee. Oscar night the cameras were drawn to Carey, and that drew in the fans. All of the attention hasn’t gone to her head. She seems like a real-life 20-something who likes to experiment with her look. At the same time, she brings to mind celebs who thrive on change (sort of like Madonna and Lady Gaga but more like Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, etc).

Even when her hair was short and dark red, Carey found ways to mix it up. One night, she used a dab of product and brushed her hair to one side. Another evening, she applied something stronger, separated the bangs and put on a headband. Anyone who doesn’t know better would think that you can’t get any versatility from a short cut. But you know better and Carey proves it!

Michelle Williams: hairstyles of an ‘It’ girl!

Michelle Williams has what it takes to be an “It” girl, as she’s shown in her numerous makeovers since Dawson’s Creek. Back then long, goldie locks were perfect for her semi-reformed bad girl opposite Katie Holmes‘ good girl. After serious roles like Brokeback Mountain and Shutter Island, the Oscar-nominated star became a new woman for the Cannes Film Festival in May. She went pretty short and platinum blond with long bangs swerving to one side… just in time to promote her new movie Blue Valentine. The daring ‘do and challenging acting jobs have helped establish Michelle as an indie star. An even shorter pixie cut in strawberry blond showed off her bravado (along with her stunning facial features!). Filming a new movie in Toronto calls for a fresh look, and Ms. Williams answers the call with a longer, darker strawberry bob… oddly enough she seems younger than ever! All of these transformations makes us wonder what’s next for this fearless trendsetter.
