Johnny Depp to be honored by Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild

For Johnny Depp, the process of creating a larger-than-life character often involves spending hours in the make-up chair, a commitment that has earned the actor the Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild’s inaugural Distinguished Artisan Award.

If he shows up to the ceremony (to be held February 15th in L.A.) the Guild will pay homage to the actor’s talent for transformation in films like Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Depp’s longtime make-up artist Joel Harlow (The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows, Pirates of the Caribbean: At Word’s End) will be on hand to present him with the award.

“Makeup and hair artisans agree that Johnny Depp is a wonderful selection to receive our first Distinguished Artisan Award,” Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild President Susan Cabral-Ebert said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “He, probably more than any other actor working today, uses the skills of our members to delineate his characters. Depp has constantly been an outstanding supporter of our crafts, ultimately respectful and appreciative of our members’ abilities and generous with his creative collaboration. A great artist himself, he allows others to shine.”

The Makeup Artists and Hairstylists Guild Awards — which returns after a ten-year hiatus — will also honor hairstylist Gail Ryan (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, 21 Grams) and special effects makeup designer Dick Smith (The Godfather, Amadeus) with Lifetime Achievement Awards and hand out trophies for outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television, commercials, and live theater in 2013.

Johnny Knoxville's 'Bad Grandpa' could win an Oscar

UPDATE (Jan. 16, 2014): Steve Prouty nominated for an Academy Award in Best Makeup and Hairstyling

ORIGINAL POST: Most Hollywood makeup artists breathe easier knowing that flaws in their work won’t be obvious to the audience thanks to elements like camera lenses and lighting — plus, any manner of sins can be corrected in post. The Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa crew didn’t have that luxury. Instead, they had to turn 40-something Johnny Knoxville into an 86-year-old man by creating a makeup that looked believable in real life to people who would be just inches away from the actor’s face.

Faced with a nearly 10-month long shoot, three-plus hour daily makeup sessions, and the ever-present possibility that Knoxville would do something like throw himself through a glass window, lead makeup special effects artist Steve Prouty knew he had his work cut out for him. And boy, did his work pay off.

Not only did Knoxville make a convincing octogenarian, now Prouty and his team are in contention for an Oscar.

How Adele chose the dress she wore for her Oscars performance -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

From beading to crystals and a flurry of sequins, the stars were in full glitter mode at Sunday night’s Oscars, but Adele was one of the few celebrities to give us a double dose of shine.

On the red carpet, the “Skyfall” singer wore a beaded Jenny Packham gown, but she upped the sparkle factor even more when it came time for her performance, changing into a Burberry dress, silver Christian Louboutin ‘Bibi’ platform pumps and diamond earrings from Van Cleef and Arpels.

“My dress weighs 15 kilos [33 pounds]. It’s so heavy,” the nominee — who went on to win the Oscar for Best Original Song — told Kristen Chenoweth. “So when you take a breath to do a big note, it’s a bit difficult.”

Why did she choose such a weighty dress?

Oscars Style Memes: Anne Hathaway's 'high beams' are this year's Angelina Jolie's right leg

oscars-anne-hathaway

Step aside, @AngiesRightLeg! Anne Hathaway’s dress and Ben Affleck’s beard were this year’s hot Oscars style memes.

When the structured darts on Hathaway’s Prada gown created the illusion of a wardrobe malfunction, the social media platform went nuts. “Anne Hathaway’s stylist should be fired for not forcing her to wear pasties! HELLO NIPPLES!!!” gossip blogger Perez Hilton tweeted.

Then came the “Breast Supporting Actress” jokes and, inevitably, the @hathawaynipples Twitter handle. “We’d just like to point out that we won Best Supporting Actress without *any* support,” the mystery person behind the account — which quickly gathered over 4,000 followers — joked after Hathaway accepted her Oscar.

Dior Fashion Face-Off: Jennifer Lawrence vs. Charlize Theron -- POLL

Jennifer Lawrence and Charlize Theron hit the red carpet in Dior Haute Couture at last night’s Academy Awards, which makes total sense when you consider that both women are on the payroll at the French fashion label — Lawrence is the new face of the brand’s Miss Dior line, while Theron has fronted the brand’s J’Adore fragrance since 2004.

Theron was a vision in a white silk bustier dress, an armful of Harry Winston bracelets, diamond stud earrings. And boy, did she work that short haircut.

Lawrence swept in wearing a pale pink and white silk bustier ball dress, which she accessorized with a jaw dropping Chopard “back necklace,” a Roger Vivier clutch, and Brian Atwood heels.
