Lady in red! We can’t keep our eyes off of Jamie Chung's elegant red dress and super soft beauty look. Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler gave Chung loose, bouncy curls and blonde highlights inspired by classic American style and 1980s Calvin Klein. After using Leonor Greyl's Voluforme ($36) for hold, Eclat Naturel ($46) for healthy ends, and Laque Souple ($36) for the finishing touches, Butler says Chung's retro-yet-modern style "just fell into place."

Chung also made a powerful social justice statement with her "Stop Asian Hate" clutch by Edie Parker.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman created the ultimate fantasy with a whimsical fishtail braid. According to hairstylist Kylee Heath, the look was inspired by her Armani dress. "We wanted her hair to be pretty and easy," she explains. "To ensure hold and add extra shine, I used the Phillip B. Anti-Frizz Formula ($42) and spritzed a generous amount of the Jet Precision Control Hairspray ($38) to tame any unwanted frizz and flyaways."

She added, "Since we wanted the look to be effortless, I finished by pulling the braid gently apart and spraying a small amount of hairspray in it to make it look worn-in."
