On Feb. 16, the British Academy of Film and Television announced the winners for the 2014 EE British Academy Film Awards. Evelyne Noraz, Lori McCoy-Bell and Kathrine Gordon won in the Make-Up and Hair category for their work on American Hustle.

“Thank you for all the actors for sitting for days and hours, and to develop something amazing. And let our art—hair and make-up and wardrobe … shine through,” McCoy-Bell said during the team’s acceptance speech.

This was the first BAFTA win for all three women. Make-up department head Noraz previously won an Emmy Award for her work on Boardwalk Empire (2011). Hair designer Gordon previously won an Emmy Award for her work on Introducing Dorothy Dandridge (2000); hair department head McCoy-Bell, who has worked as actor Bradley Cooper’s personal hairstylist, won a Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Award (Charlie’s Angels) in 2001.

U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland' - Tuesday August 04, 2009
U.K. team collaborates for a different 'Alice in Wonderland'
On a cold and cloudy Oxford afternoon, U.K. make-up artist Sarah Terry collaborated with photographer Rebecca Parkes, hairstylist Sean Butt and designer Bibian Blue to create this dark vision of Alice in Wonderland. The Victorian and Edwardian eras inspired Terry to contrast creams and gold hues with vibrant reds and smoky blacks. Appliqués, feathers, nail art and Butts’ elaborate hair design gave the looks texture. This particular Alice (Samantha Wilkinson) and White Rabbit (Blossom Blois) look innocent, but there’s a hint of mischief here, too. Let’s follow them down the path, shall we?
