Perhaps it’s all the buzz being produced by “The Artist” that’s causing people to channel the look of old Hollywood on this afternoon’s Oscars red carpet. Several women have appeared wearing their hair swept to the side in soft curls à la Veronica Lake.

“The Artist’s” Missi Pyle has some Marilyn Monroe-esque voluminous waves pulled to one side, Milla Jovovich has a similar style to go along with her bombshell, one-shouldered Elie Saab gown.


Maya Rudolph has her long locks pulled all the way over the left shoulder of her plum-colored Johanna Johnson dress. And Stacey Keibler looks like a glamorous Oscar statuette, with her blond locks swept to one side, showing off the bare neckline of her stunning gold Marchesa gown.
