Lily James’ Oscars 2022 look left us truly speechless—from her pastel pink dress to her soft but sultry makeup. But the biggest wow-factor was her brand new post-Pam and Tommy hairstyle, as she stepped out to reveal that had ditched Pamela Anderson’s iconic blonde hair for 'expensive brunette.'

This year's Oscars ceremony really had it all, from history being made by West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose to an onstage altercation between Chris Rock and Will Smith that left us all reeling. That didn’t stop Lily James, however, from stealing the show, in a Versace dress that was literally the embodiment of spring itself. She ate up that red carpet, and luckily for us⁠—we know exactly what beauty products she wore!

The star of Pam & Tommy paired her floral, tulle gown, which had a dramatic leg slit, with matching pink platform heels and looked like an actual dream. Shedding her uncanny resemblance to Pam, she also debuted her new brunette hair which was styled with extra volume and loose waves.

We all got so used to her captivating performance and incredible transformation into Pamela, we had to do a double-take when she arrived on the red carpet. Plus, it wasn't just her new hair that caught our eye, but her flawless make-up, which was brought to us by makeup artist, Hung Vanngo.

The look featured a soft, warm brown smokey eye and natural and flawless skin with a slight pink pout—everything we want for our spring/ summer makeup routine and luckily for us, Vanngo has listed everything used to create her soft glam.
