Academy Awards: Mallika Sherawat

When I first started doing makeup in 2009 I had a few goals for my career. One of them was to do something that pertained to the Academy Awards. In 2010, I was a part of the Pre Oscar Fashion Show, a showcase with models in the industry and fashion designers who compete to win the position of trophy girl at the actual ceremony.

This year, I was fortunate enough to assist Jeffrey Paul on hair and makeup for the beautiful Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat. Over the past year I was able to meet and work with Mallika on a few different shoots. This day was different because yesterday Mallika would be making her grand Oscar debut.

A lot of thought, deliberation, and careful consideration went into choosing the right dress, accessories, hairstyle, and makeup look for this momentous occasion. After conversations between Jeffrey, Ivan Bitton (the stylist), the amazing seamstresses, and pretty much anyone who was in the room, we came to a collective decision that the stunning Mark Bouwer silver/grey dress would be perfection. And it was. Mallika looked absolutely radiant and was placed on several best dressed lists in today's news! Check out some behind the scenes looks as well as pictures from the red carpet at Kodak Theatre.
