I've gotta hand it to Megan Fox for this hairstyle. Whether or not you're a fan of this actress or the look, it definitely seems like a hard one to pull off. From the front, it appears like any other slicked-back style, but it's actually a French twist created with two sections instead of just one.

Last night, Christina Applegate stepped out in a sunshiny, strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with gorgeous necklace to bring out the yellow hue . . . and a glowing face, too. With long bangs falling over her forehead, she chose a sophisticated yet casual style playing up her hair's short length and natural texture. After you check out the makeup tutorial, have a look at stylist Ken Paves's tips for recreating this look at home:
- Starting with wet hair, spray Ken Paves Healthy Hair Volumizing Spray at the roots and use a blow dryer while tousling hair with fingers to create lift and add texture.
- Just before the hair is completely dry, finish the edges using a teaser-type brush (like this Spornette mixed-bristle brush).
- Once dry, add more volumizing spray and collect the hair back with a larger, mixed bristle brush – Paves chose a Mason Pearson for this part — so luxurious.
- Use hair pins to keep short hair twisted up and finish off the look with just a couple sprays of Ken Paves Healthy Hair Strong Hold Shaping Spray – don't overdo it unless you want helmet head!
You were applauding Salma Hayek's makeup and hair last night, and I've got to agree. The sexy 42-year-old (can you believe it?) mixed old Hollywood with a contemporary twist for this sophisticated look — one that was directly inspired by her Dior dress.
Nars makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuwen said, “I made her eyes the focus and added a lot of rich, jewel skin tones and fresh color to her cheeks and lips. Her look was very classic and chic, with some modern textures.” Wowza. To see what shades and techniques he chose, read more
Anne Hathaway's alabaster skin, raspberry lips, and pulled-back chignon were a hit last night. I already gave you the details on her classic makeup, and now I've got the how-to on that right-on-trend slick, chic hair. Adir Abergel of Frederic Fekkai styled Hathaway's hair with clean lines and clean texture. Take a look at his technique below:
Apply Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel ($23) from roots to ends. Next, comb hair into a very deep side part and thoroughly dry with a large round brush. Then, gather hair in a low ponytail, applying Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme ($23) for shine and texture. Secure with an elastic holder at the nape, and tuck the ponytail underneath. Some bobby pins and hair pins will keep it in place. To complete this old Hollywood look, spray it with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray ($23).
The InStyle bash wasn't the only place where the stars were celebrating after the Golden Globes. Big winners Tina Fey and Colin Farrell showed off their statues at the NBC party alongside happy new parents Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. Over at the Showtime event, Dexter costars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter posed for the first time as a married couple. Meanwhile, David Duchovny made sure to mention his "wife" multiple times last night perhaps to squash any lingering, rocky marriage rumors. Since Téa was nowhere in sight, David chatted with his Californication costar, Evan Handler. Adrian Grenier and Mark Wahlberg were living it up at the HBO affair with the cast of Entourage and a camera of their own. Bella beauty, Kate Winslet finished off her magical night by making the rounds with her husband Sam Mendes, looking happy as could be with her arms full of awards.

With such a show-stopping frock, I was glad to see a simpler hairstyle not try to compete with her Reem Acra gown and floral diamond buds. Personally, I think her look is lovely, so I'm glad to share this hairstyle with you.
Taking inspiration from 70's icon Ali MacGraw, Ken Paves created her simply timeless look. The key is to keep things straight and shiny, so find out how he did it when you read more
How-To: Kate Winslet's Makeup at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards A big winner last night, Kate Winslet looked equally award-winning on the red carpet in her black YSL gown.

2008 was a tough year for Christina Applegate, who underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, she's now cancer-free, and she's earning kudos for her performance on Samantha Who?. If you loved her red-carpet look, created by makeup artist Joanna Schlip, follow these steps to recreate it at home.
- Skin: Before applying any makeup, Schlip applied The Moisturizing Lotion from La Mer on Christina's face to give her smooth, hydrated skin. Then, she used DiorSkin Pure Light foundation in Cameo, covering imperfections with Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen. After applying a self-tanner bronzer, she used Physicians Formula 100% Natural Origin 2-in-1 Bronzer and Blush in Bronzer/Ginger on the apples of Christina's cheeks. She set the makeup with La Mer The Mist. Christina's collarbone and shoulders glowed after an application of MAC Strobe Cream.

We're still recovering from last night's Golden Globe whirlwind, but we have decided on our top three of the evening. These are the ladies we keep going back to. It's a pretty close race in terms of your best dressed of the night. Our number one — Eva Mendes in Christian Dior — is among the close contenders. But for us, it's unanimous.
Eva rocked this strapless white sculptured Dior gown. It's a fresh silhouette, and color, for the red carpet and for that I am thankful. On stage it was dramatic and moved with grace. She's a fan of sexy up dos and her side swept bangs let her gorgeous face work its magic. She could have stopped at the dress, but she didn't. Yes! Her neck was zealous with a Van Cleef & Arpels turquoise choker and her wrist got in on the turquoise fun, too. Her ears sparkled with diamond clusters. Eva will always be remembered for this perfect Golden Globe attempt.
