Though the Golden Globes are but a memory and the Oscars aren’t until February 27, there are plenty of red carpet events to look forward to in the meantime, including the BAFTA Awards in London. The nominations for the February 13 ceremony, considered by many to be the British equivalent of the Oscars, were announced this morning. Black Swan is a top contender; nominated for Best Film, Best Costume Design, and Best Hair and Makeup, while Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman garnered another Best Actress nod. We’re excited to see that Hailee Steinfeld also landed in the best leading actress category for True Grit, a first for the 14-year-old. And Easy A‘s Emma Stone is nominated for the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award, the only category decided on by a public online vote. (However, only U.K. residents are eligible.) For more, check out the full list of nominees.

The red carpet fashion at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards on Friday night featured a pop of winter whites. Best Actress winner Natalie Portman wore a single-strap white Gianfranco Ferré gown with a black band at the top, and paired it with Fred Leighton jewelry, Stella McCartney shoes and a Christian Dior clutch. Michelle Williams also chose white, her variation being a Balenciaga dress with embroidered floral details. She finished the look with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and Neil Lane jewelry.

Black Swan star Mila Kunis favors sophisticated draped gowns from tried-and-true designers, while Hollywood up-and-comer Jennifer Lawrence may choose a look from an equally fresh talent. “She’s sort of strong-willed and young,” the 20-year-old’s stylist Elizabeth Stewart told the New York Times. “I think she would want to support a young designer.” Click through for more looks from this year’s Golden Globes debutantes!

Emma Stone is trying out fresh ways to style her newly-blond hair. Last night, the Easy A star appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno wearing her lightened locks in cute milkmaid braids. And she’s not alone in her Heidi hair moment: Zoe Saldana sported cute plaits this summer and Helena Christensen tried the twists in the fall. Would you ever wear milkmaid braids?

The colors were extreme—from Michelle Williams’s platinum pixie to Rihanna’s fire-engine red crop. And the trendsetters weren’t just on the red carpet, they were also on YouTube. (Thank you Willow Smith and Justin Bieber!) Click through our gallery to see all of the best moments in hair from the entire year. You won’t want to miss a strand!

While it’ll be the first time at the Globes for some nominees—Jennifer Lawrence (nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama for Winter’s Bone) and Mila Kunis (Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for Black Swan)—many have been to the Globes before, like Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams and Nicole Kidman, so we can’t wait to see what they will wear to the big event on January 16th. In the meantime, check out their previous Golden Globes gowns in the gallery.

Emma Stone debuted fresh blond hair over the weekend, a drastic color change from her deep red roots. But this kind of intense transformation, which she did to prepare for her role in the new Spiderman movie, didn’t happen with just a box of dye and a few hours to kill. In fact, it took 13 hours over three days and two colorists—Tracey Cunningham of Beverly Hills’ Byron & Tracey Salon and Marie Robinson, who runs her own salon in New York—to create Stone’s golden look. “She has pale pink undertones to her skin, so it was important to find a balance of pale blond with just the right amount of gold and strawberry,” Robinson told InStyle exclusively. “It was tricky because we needed it to be a believable color for Spiderman‘s fans and work for her everyday life.” So, why was the process so intense? As Cunningham explained: “It takes a long time to do it carefully!”

Of the drastic color change (which is actually closer to her natural hair color), the actress told us: “It’s my Spiderman hair! Blondes do have more fun! But sometimes I look in the mirror and still feel like I’m wearing a wig.” Stone will play Spiderman’s love interest, Gwen Stacy, in the remake of the movie, which is set to release 2012.
