Greek Dream Team Dominated at The Oscars

The Greek ‘Dream Team’ did what they do best at this year’s 94th Academy Awards.

Greek American Entertainment reporter Maria Menounos, Hair and Make-up Artist Dimitris Giannetos and Fashion Designer Celia Kritharioti, were dazzled in the style stakes at the Oscars 2022.

The trio worked closely on creating Menounos’ showstopping red carpet look. Maria took a different approach to choose her dress this year, whilst filling in for Kelly Rippa on Live with Kelly and Ryan co-hosting with Ryan Seacrest, she shared three different sketches of potential dress options designed by Celia Kritharioti and let the viewers choose.

The winning gown choice was a gorgeous custom-made couture green dress that fit the Hollywood reporter like a glove and accentuated her body in all the right places. The strapless body-conscious dress featured four embellished buckles going down the front, which added that touch of sparkle to the classic stunning silhouette.

Glam guru Dimitris Giannetos known for his winning beauty and style looks nailed it with his hair and make-up creation on his muse Menounos. He highlighted her eyes with a graphite green winged liner that added that extra fashion-forward cutting-edge look and kept her face bronzed and lips natural.

Behind the scenes 'glam in session'

To keep the focus on Maria’s gorgeous dress and face, Giannetos swept her hair in a high bun but in the glam guru’s usual form keeping his creations original, he detailed her crown with a woven-like feature and secured her tresses into a twisted bun, having the Greek goddess looking ever so elegant.

Chiselled and handsome Giannetos could’ve been mistaken for a Hollywood star on the red carpet, looking sharp dressed in a black tuxedo and added eyewear to accessorise and complete his look.

The in-demand hair and make-up artist also glammed former Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio and model Olivia Culpo who both, along with Menounos, slayed in their red carpet beauty and style looks.
