Stars at the People Choice Awards were seen embracing a New Year look – with a refreshing twist – on Wednesday night.
Swapping bouncy curls for tightly woven braids, Lea Michele made sure her hot pink mini-dress dress stood out from the crowd as her intricate hairdo pulled back her usual statement strands.
Layers of the 26-year old's chestnut tresses were pinned in place to create a Grecian-crown effect, suitably appropriate for Lea's award of the night as she was named best Comedic TV actress for her role as Rachel Berry in the hit musical television show, Glee.
Complementing the golden tan which the pretty brunette had acquired on a recent holiday in Hawaii with her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, Lea finished off her look with a touch of sheer pink gloss to her lips and accentuating her naturally fluttering lashes with volumising mascara.
Singing sensation Taylor Swift also impressed on the red carpet as she switched up her look for a fresh start to the New Year after recently splitting from One Direction heart throb, 18-year-old Harry Styles.
Drawing up her angelic curls and girly fringe into a sophisticated up-do, Taylor's matte-finished locks would have impressed on any catwalk.
Teamed with a sultry, low cut dress in dazzling white, the 22-year-old country singer kept her look and mood for the evening light with sky-blue earrings that matched her eyes, topped off with a creamy peach lip.
Turning up the colour spectrum were actresses Emma Watson and Sandra Bullock who brought a pop of pink to the stage. They both received awards for the evening sporting eye-catching pouts and rouged cheeks.
As the youthful face of Lancome, British Harry Potter star Emma is certainly no stranger to experimenting with lip colour, and this shade of deep rose with an iridescent finish is a fantastic way to transform a look for Spring.
Watch out, because this shade is the hottest thing to wear this season!
