Whilst I adore Elizabeth Bennett, I think it would be hard to pull off that hairstyle without looking frumpy. Same with the short blond curly hairdo. The dress is lovely but quite frilly/dramatic so I would be going for a relaxed hairstyle. plus my photographer told me that with strapless dresses you need to make sure your hair isn’t too severe or “up” as it means there is too much bare skin that can look harsh in photos. 

With regards to makeup I like them all except Anne Hathaways – the eye makeup is too harsh. The others are still dramatic but much softer.

laceydoilies:  I like the idea you have for you hair (except the first and last pictures) but I’m not loving any that you’ve posted. Check out this blog for tons of great ideas.

Also, I love the 4th makeup look you’ve posted. Here’s a better picture of it.
