As I arrived, the star snipper was busy tending to Carole Middleton.
Back in the plush Richard Ward salon to bring you a third ‘get the look’ guide, I was particularly excited – and only partly because I could see the Duchess of Cambridge’s mum out of the corner of my eye.
This time, it was all about Tinseltown’s most glittering event in the showbiz calendar – the Oscars.

I had glammed up appropriately – think lashings of mascara and bright pink lippy. And with me along for the experience was my sister, who is blessed with an unfairly thick mane I’m pretty sure would rival Kate’s.
First up – Gwyneth Paltrow’s sleek low ponytail that perfectly complemented her superhero-style Tom Ford cape.
Richard’s favourite of the night, this easy yet effective style is a great one to try at home – it took the hair wizard only minutes to manage.
And then he worked his magic on my sister Katherine.

Delight was etched on her face as she sat patiently while Richard expertly teased her hair into Jessica Chastain’s half-up, half-down style, followed by Angelina Jolie’s slightly messy mane of cascading curls.
She refused, however, to stick her right leg out for the final photo. Well, it was worth a try.
