The hair: "A ginger haircolor will make Gretchen's light blue eyes really pop," says Paves. She likes her side bang, which Paves keeps on the shaggy bob he cuts for her on one of his wigs. The all-one-color blonde of her own hair washes out her complexion, he says, but the deeper, rich color of her bob brings out her fair skin in vivid contrast.
The makeup: For Gretchen's urban look, she wears a sheer, matte foundation that matches her skin tone, black eyeliner, black mascara, a taupe cream shadow from the lashline to the brow bone and a little taupe powder on her brows, a pink cream blush, and a nude gloss on her lips. Keeping makeup colors light and sheer accentuates Gretchen's natural radiance. Her nails are painted pale pink.
The clothes: With her supermodel figure, Gretchen is a perfect clothes hanger, says Adam. But dressing very young makes her look older than she is. "There's nothing sexier and more timeless than a waist-cinched, well-fitted trench coat," says Adam. "And navy, surprisingly, can be a very sexy color when it's paired with bold statement jewelry." The shine from the pearls and chain brightens Gretchen's face; the hat is sassy and fun, and gives her a bit of panache and intrigue. "I want to be a good sport," she says of her transformation, "but I feel like a granny wearing nylons. And I also feel boyish, too, because of the short hair. Oh, anyway, it's fun."
