Sure, we all want to know who nabs the coveted Academy Award for best actress on Feb. 22, but we also care a whole lot about what these sexy starlets wore (and how they wore it), not to mention their make-up and hairstyles. After all, if we didn't, would E!'s Fashion Police really be so popular?
Here are some tips on how you can adopt some of the nominees' signature styles.
Julianne Moore is nominated for her heart-wrenching portrayal of a woman diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's in Still Alice. Gemstone tones and colors are oh-so fashion-forward this year, and Moore often rocks emerald green to complement her fiery locks.
The Takeaway: If you have red hair, go green.
Reese Witherspoon wears no make-up and barely even showers in her portrayal of spiritual gangster and author Cheryl Strayed in Wild. Still, she shines as she embarks on a 1,760km solo hike on the Pacific Crest Trail.
The Takeaway: Sometimes less is more. Don't overdo your makeup when hitting the gym or meeting friends for coffee. Save the sparkle for important black tie or red carpet events.
Felicity Jones' character in The Theory of Everything is nothing short of heroic in her love for her brilliant-but-ailing husband and their family. On the red carpet, however, it's often her flawless porcelain complexion that gets the most attention.
The Takeaway: Avoid the sun and apply a Matte Primer before putting on makeup. This will control shine and leave your face flawless like Felicity's.
Rosamund Pike may play a head case in Gone Girl, but it's her hairstyles that have been turning heads this Award's season. Her latest is a short, pale blonde bob.
The Takeaway: The bob is back, and there's a bob for everyone. Talk to your hairdresser about which bob best frames your face, whether it's sexy and tousled or blunt-cut.
Marion Cotillard, the actress nominated for her work in Two Days, One Night, is known for her unique fashion flare after all, she is French. One of her latest looks included a retro glamour updo and a structured cream two-piece dress featuring abstract imagery, by Carolina Herrera NY.
The Takeaway: Don't be afraid to stand out and take fashion risks.

Is apple cider vinegar really the cure for all that ails me?
People do swear by it! There is some anecdotal evidence that apple cider vinegar can help tame tummy troubles and reduce inflammation (which sets the stage for a laundry list of diseases and conditions). It may help clear up congestion, lower cholesterol, and oh yeah, it also may cure the hiccups. Most apple cider vinegar connoisseurs take two teaspoons or more a day mixed in a cup of water or juice. Small doses won't hurt you, and they may help. That said, it makes sense to run it by your doctor first.
