10. Elisabeth Moss’ Bold Eyes

On the line: The Handmaid’s Tale star’s makeup pro Sabrina Bedrani chose an edgy eye look to balance Moss’ “very delicate and pretty” white gown. “Sh e typically is seen wearing a clean eye and lip, so I wanted to go in another direction and bring out her beautiful eyes,” Bedrani says.

What a doll! The inspiration for the Sharper Objects actress’ hair was “a vintage Barbie,” hairstylist John D. tells Us. “We reversed the hair’s natural texture and pulled it into a chic high bun.” After prepping towel-dried strands with a large dollop of TRESemme’s TRES Two Extra Hold MousseOpens a New Window. and scrunching with hands “to bring out the hair’s natural texture,” he blow-dried with the Dyson Supersonic ProOpens a New Window., using the diffuser attachment while further scrunching hair.
