She may have lost to Melissa Leo for Best Supporting Actress, but Amy Adams' entire look was a winner in our book!

"The Fighter" actress electrified the 2011 Oscars red carpet in a glittering purple L'Wren Scott cap-sleeve gown, and to add some softness to this high-octane look, celebrity hairstylist Laini Reeves for Couture Colour created a 'do inspired by Jerry Hall with loose, romantic marcel waves and lots of va-va-voom volume.

Laini began this red-carpet look with clean, conditioned wet hair. To give Amy's locks a smooth, shiny appearance, and to maintain the vibrancy of her gorgeous copper color, Laini applied three pea-size drops of Couture Pequi Oil Treatment from roots to ends. First, she rubbed the oil between her fingertips to activate the ingredients.

She then parted the hair to the side, and wet-set every piece of hair into 1.5-inch curlers. Once the hair was fully dry, she removed the curlers and brushed through the hair with a soft bristle brush. She finished by adding a touch more pequi oil for shine and hairspray for hold.

And if you love her makeup, read on for the deets from makeup artist Molly Stern :

Stern prepped Adams' skin with Jurlique face spray and Crème de la Mer. She then mixed La Mer foundation with Josie Maran Argan Skin Illuminzer. To warm up the star's complexion, she applied Josie Maran Color Stick in Petal Pink and highlighted her cheek bone with NARS Sex Appeal Blush.

On the eyes, she applied a bright gold in the inner corners of the lid with NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Hollywood Land and built out the depth with a navy hue by NARS in Bateu Ivre. Stern then lined her lash line with Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil in Victoria Falls and layered on lots of mascara in dark blue by Beauty Is Life. She finished the look with NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Frivolous.
