    Laura Prepon

    Laura Prepon’s romantic low bun and luminous skin were the perfect complement to her structured Gustavo Cadile gown. Makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Odwell used Simple's Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($12) to create a smooth base for Prepon's face makeup, then used a damp Beauty Blender ($20) to stipple Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation ($62) over her skin. For her peachy lip, Campbell-Odwell reached for Laura Mercier's Crème Smooth Lip Color ($27) in Brigitte.

    January Jones

    Hairstylist Renato Campora wanted to do something a little modern to contrast the old Hollywood glamour vibe of Jones’ makeup. Campora prepped the actress' hair with Vidal Sassoon’s Pro Series Mega Firm Hold Gel ($6), rough-dried it with his hands, and added more gel for extra texture. Then he pulled her hair back into two twists.

    Jessica Paré

    Makeup artist Kate Lee made the eyes and lips the focus of Paré’s look. Lee used a combination of Chanel’s Lumières Facettes Quadra Eye Shadow ($60) in Quadrille and Chanel’s Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($30) in Hésitation.

    Allison Williams

    Allison Williams looked fresh with glowy skin, long lashes, and soft pink lips. “Allison had just returned from her summer vacation so her skin was sun-kissed,” said Pati Dubroff, celebrity makeup artist. “We decided to go with a soft look. I dubbed this ‘pretty in pink with a flash’—the pink is on the lid, the cheek and the lip, while the flash is a dash of bright yellow gold on the inner corner of her eyes, which complimented the bright yellow grosgrain belt on her dress.” Dubroff layered Tarte's LipSurgence™ Matte Lip Tint ($24) in Lucky and the brand's Amazonian Butter Lipstick ($16) in Golden Pink for the perfect lip.

    Taylor Schilling

    Hair stylist Richard Marin gave Taylor Schilling a “'60s-inspired updo” with a volumized messy chignon. He used L’Oréal’s Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse ($5) to create lift at the crown. Makeup artist Tina Turnbow created a look for Schilling that she described as "ethereal and angelic," inspired by the sparkle of Schilling's Zuhair Murad couture gown. To give her a lit-from-within glow, she used Laura Mercier's Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour ($32) in Pink Glow on the apples of her cheeks.

    Lizzy Caplan

    Lizzy Caplan went for pure glamour with groomed brows, smoky eyes, and sleek hair. "Lizzy's gown made a statement with the dramatic train and its bold silhouette," hairstylist Marcus Francis said. "We felt the focus should be on the dress, and kept the hair clean and classic." He applied Suave Professionals' Natural Infusion All Day Body Leave-In Foam with Seaweed ($6) throughout her damp hair, made a deep side part, then blow dried with a round brush for a smooth finish that still had volume.
