Drama Queens

Few venture into uncharted territory when it comes to red carpet beauty. They might rock a crazy dress or wild shoes, but when it comes to hair and makeup most women just want to look pretty. Here, we salute ten actresses who found a way to take a risk at Hollywood's biggest party of the year, the Academy Awards, and still look lovely. To begin, Barbra Streisand, who accepted her Best Actress Oscar for Funny Girl in 1968 with a Twiggy eye and her famously sharp talons, the latter of which have made quite the comeback in the past two years on the hands of Rihanna and Adele.
