Julia Roberts created a “timeless couture look” at the Oscars in 2001, her hairstylist has revealed. Serge Normant was behind the actress’s gorgeous hair creation on the night of her big win over a decade ago.
The style oozed Hollywood glamour and was more than perfect for the moment when all eyes were on the Erin Brockovich star as she collected her trophy. “It was a great moment when Julia won her Oscar in 2001. The hair kind of happened. It wasn’t overly planned and we ended up with this gorgeous, timeless couture look,” Serge told the UK edition of Glamour.
The celebrity hair expert also named his favourite style of all time. Normant said he was so impressed by French actress Catherine Deneuve’s crowning glory in 1967 movie Belle De Jour, he put up the film’s poster in his apartment.
Very blonde and voluminous, the top section of her locks is swept-back to show off her gorgeous features. “I love Catherine Deneuve’s look in Belle De Jour – in fact, the only picture hanging on my wall in my downtown NYC salon is an original poster from the movie,” he revealed.
