The Oscars can influence fashions and hair styles for years to come, so we begin our archive of the Oscars, starting with 2004.

A look at who wore what, sometimes we to know where we are, we have to look at where we've been.

After a year of glamour deprivation, Hollywood's best and brightest made sure they dazzled at the 2004 Oscars.

The bush telegraph had obviously been working overtime as Tinsel town's darlings conspired to simultaneously channel the spirit of Hollywood Past for that year's pilgrimage to the Kodak Theatre.

Reminiscent of a by-gone Hollywood, the night was dominated by a decidedly retro-glam look. With their soft smoky eyes, pale lips, glamour gowns and waved hair the entertainment world stamped its own mark on vintage beauty.

The gowns, the make-up, and the hair all had a sophisticated look to them. Continuing the trend seen on the runways and red carpets of 2004, the words to sum up the fashions were light, airy, and ultra feminine.

There was perhaps no greater emblem of the turn to ultra-femininity than the oft leather clad and androgynous Annie Lennox wafting along in a Stella McCartney 1930s-inspired ice blue, silk satin gown. The Scottish songster was transformed into a Hollywood princess.

Even before one perfectly pedicured and bejewelled foot set foot on the red carpet, fashion pundits were making grand predictions. Along with the usual speculation around who had received what parcels from which major fashion house, there was also a fair amount of conjecture into how the most famous of tresses would be styled.

Stellure Archives And History Of Oscar Fashions And Hair Style ~ The Gowns

Celebrity hair stylist, Etienne Taenaka, salon director for Vidal Sassoon, who styled heads at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Sunday morning, coined a mantra for the current season when he quipped "Dead straight is dead gone, and pony tails are for the gym". See how that prediction changed the following year with Hillary Swank's pony at the 2005 Oscars.

It seems Taenaka was spot on for 2004 though. Holly Hunter seemed to be the only Hollywood star still attached to her hair straightener. For the others in 2004 it was elegant up dos along with waves and curls.

Wearing a stunning Carolina Herrera white strapless column gown with a draped bodice and a back bow along with almost $1 million worth Cartier jewelry, it's not surprising Renee Zellweger chose to keep her hair simple The Best Supporting Actress wore her hair swept off her face in a gentle twist at the back of her neck. Renee also repeated this smart fashion trick in 2005 letting that Carolina Herrera little black dress do the work.

Despite not receiving a nomination this year, Nicole Kidman was to many the fashion belle of the ball. She teamed her slate couture Chanel gown with a soft "up down" hairstyle. She wore her curled hair loosely pulled back and piled on top of her head with the back section left to cascade down her back which was left bare by a backless gown. 2005 saw Nicloe Kidman in a slightly different look.

Sporting a similar smooth and stylish up do was Naomi Watts - the perfect accessory - other than boyfriend Heath Ledger - for her strapless beaded Versace number. To compliment her tangerine vintage Valantino gown, Jennifer Garner also kept things simple with a banged nape updo that was held in place with a barrette.

Julia Roberts.......Others that year left their hair soft and totally loose. Dressed in a bronze Giorgio Armani gown, Julia Roberts' hair was a mass of Farah Fawcett inspired tumbling and streaked curls. So too did Catherine Zeta Jones who wore a stunning red gown by friend Donatella Versace. From the other side of the camera, Best Director nominee, Sofia Coppola's natural and glossy hair was the perfect accompaniment to her black Marc Jacobs gown with flutter sleeves.

Best Actress Charlize Theron could have stepped straight out of the silver screen in her taupe slinky beaded gown by Tom Ford for Gucci. Her look of movie star perfection was completed by her hair - 1920s bobbed waves. Liv Tyler, resplendent in couture Givenchy, also opted for waves and curls. Her asymmetric style that also took its inspiration from the 1920s and 30s was a sure bet to be a much replicated hairstyle in 2004.

Other stars making waves were Scarlett Johannson, waves again in 2005.Sandra Bullock also opted for waves. Scarlett Johannson was one of only a handful of stars who injected some color into the proceedings with her teal Alberta Ferretti gown which she complemented with Monroesque waves.

Sandra Bullock in an ivory silk faille gown left her hair to waft in chestnut waves, that many have said were reminiscent of Rita Hayworth.

To summarize the hair trends from the 2004 Oscars: glamour, femininity, and more glamour. These favorite styles are sure to be seen at a prom or a wedding for many years to come!
