What do Jennifer Lawrence, Bette Midler and Portia de Rossi have in common? They all went for a short, blown-back hairstyle on the Oscars red carpet.

And to complete their easy yet glamorous look? Simple diamond and pearl studs — we’re loving de Rossi’s Dior “Mise En Dior” tribal earrings — for a more laid-back elegance.

Obviously, this hairstyle defies any age limits. Lawrence, 23, Midler, 68, and de Rossi, 41, each prove you can work this ‘do at any stage of life.

We guess that applies to color too. Midler (in Reem Acra) and Lawrence (in Dior) both glowed in fire engine red.

But back to their hair. The real key to pulling it off is confidence, which each star has in spades. What do you think of their looks?

We’ve been feeling a noticeable lack of Lawrence on the red carpet lately — while her peers have been busy hitting every awards show pre-Oscars, she’s been holed up filming Mockingjay, depriving us of a reliable parade of photos of the star making goofy faces while wearing Dior dresses. But with a week to go before the big show, she’s resurfaced in these latest ads for her Miss Dior campaign. And if the rumors are true, we’re set for another three years of (and she’s set for another $20 million from) a continued Jennifer Lawrence/Dior collaboration.

Oscars Gown Showdown: Hilary Swank vs. Jennifer Lawrence -- Pick Your Favorite!

The Showdown: Hilary Swank in Guy Laroche (2005) vs. Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein Collection (2011)
The Editor’s Pick: Jennifer Lawrence
Who Made the Call?: Catherine Kast, Writer-Reporter
Why She Chose It:
Today is totally the battle of the bold, yet minimalist. No frills allowed, no sparkles, no nothing. And it’s awesome. I had even forgotten about how amazing Hilary looked in this dress because, like many people, I have Jennifer Lawrence tunnel vision.

Check out the full Oscars Gown Showdown bracket here!

Though Jennifer ultimately wins for me, Hilary’s midnight-blue Guy Laroche dress brings back memories … to a time when actresses knew how to show off their box office toned bodies sans super-sheer paneling. Hilary was in the gym over four hours per day for her role in Million Dollar Baby and gained a whopping 19 lbs. of muscle. This look was the perfect way to show off that transformation without taking it too far.

The low, asymmetrical back with a train that’s arguably the perfect length — manageable yet stunning? Phenomenal. In 2009, The Office even devoted an episode to figuring out if Hilary Swank is hot or not. This look totally begs off that question. Hot, yes, but definitely refined.

Still, I go for Jennifer’s 2011 Baywatch babe Calvin Klein Collection moment. Ah yes, it’s basically prehistoric times — we might as well call it “2011 BC.” That’s Before Christian [Dior] for all those keeping a timeline on J.Law’s fashion, which obviously I am. Sometimes when I need to remember a time before our staff could predict which Dior dress she was going to don, I Google “Jennifer Lawrence Calvin Klein First Oscars” and I feel instantly rejuvenated.

After her nominated role in Winter’s Bone called for exclusively oversize tees, bombers and beanies, stepping out in this body-con (but not banal) dress made everyone wonder, “Who is that girl?” This is the look that gave us the confident movie star we know and love today, and for that reason, Jennifer gets my vote.

Voting is now closed but click here to see who came out on top — and to weigh in on today’s matchup: Cameron Diaz vs. Sandra Bullock!

Jennifer Lawrence's Doritos Dust Almost Ruined Her American Hustle Wardrobe

Not many actresses can say they came by their curves with the help of neon-colored snack food, but Jennifer Lawrence is not most actresses. The star indulged in everyone’s favorite after-school snack, Doritos, on the set of American Hustle — and she had the orange fingerprint-smeared dress (and panicked costume designer) to prove it.

At an event celebrating Diane Von Furstenberg’s “Journey of a Dress” exhibit in L.A., costume designer Michael Wilkinson recalled being grateful that he’d made a few extra copies of Lawrence’s plunging white gown. “I’m kind of glad we did,” he said, “because Jennifer Lawrence is a very, let’s say, raw and intuitive young lady, and she’s not against eating Doritos and snack food in her costume. So we were glad that we had a couple [backups].”

He also shared that the dress was meant to look like something Lawrence’s slightly unhinged homemaker could have created herself — right down to the $3.99 per yard fabric. “David really had it set in his mind that she would be wearing this dress that she just poured herself into,” Wilkinson said. “He wanted to see every single lump and bump. There had to be a sense of, ‘Is she going to fall out of it?’ It had this dangerous feeling to it, which matched her own dangerous mental landscape.”
