Kathryn Bigelow is the first women to win an Oscar for Best Director, she was favored to win and she knew the night was hers. Somewhere along the way while putting together her look for the night, she decided to break from tradition and wear her hair *gasp* down. While the norm in formal hair is to wear it up, don’t worry so much about rules. If you have a personal style that works for you, stick with it, I’m sure she felt comfortable and more like herself (plus she looked fantastic). The only rule left is that there aren’t rules anymore when it comes to your personal style.
