“Chaotic,” “glamorous,” and “exciting” are a just a few words that describe a typical award-show red carpet. And as much as we like to focus on the final looks, the hours of prep leading up to the big day are equally as captivating. For most A-listers, it takes more than just having their hair and makeup done. If you include the pre-event fitness routines, facials, and waxing treatments, the process can span multiple days—months even.
