Emmy Awards 2011
The Prettiest Hair and Makeup
Nina Dobrev: Best Winged Liner
Christina Hendricks: Best Metallic Shadow
Kaley Cuoco: Best Two-Toned Manicure
"[My nails] are for good luck," Cuoco told Ryan Seacrest. Manicurist Beth Fricke opted for the subdued OPI Over the Taupe, but accented the ring ringer with a coat of OPI Big Apple Red—and it must have worked! Cuoco's Big Bang Theory co-star Jim Parson's won as Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
Minka Kelly: Best Smoky Eye
Makeup artist Matthew VanLeeuwen used a light touch in creating Minka Kelly's diffused smoky eye. Smudgy dove gray shadow, a coat of rich black liner, and tons of lush mascara combined for a stunning but still soft finish.
Evan Rachel Wood: Best Short Style
There's not one way to rock a pixie. Just ask Evan Rachel Wood, who's worn hers swept-back, slicked-down, and now in retro fingerwaves. After wetting and shaping the waves with Frederic Fekkai Coiff Super Sculpt Styling Gel, hairstylist Mara Roszak went old school: "I let the hair dry under a hood for about twenty minutes," she said.
Julie Bowen: Sleekest Ponytail
How best to play-up a plunging neckline? As Julie Bowen sees it, a sleek side ponytail. Her version is extra-tight, ultra-low and downright sexy. (Just like her Oscar de la Renta gown!)
Cat Deeley: Beachiest Waves
Cat Deeley's windswept waves—courtesy of hairstylist Ben Skirven— were the perfect accessory for her glittery Monique Lhuillier gown. The breezy, piecey texture aptly highlighted the dimensional tones—from buttery blond to toffee brown— in her hair.
Lea Michele: Best Bangs
Although Michele's hair is sleek and precise, hairstylist Mark Townsend wanted to be sure it still had plenty of body. A creamy dollop of Dove Body and Lift Mousse built the foundation for a bouncy blowout, but Townsend had one other trick up his sleeve. "I always use Spornette mixed bristle brushes to get tons of volume in the hair," he added.
