We Gave 4 Inspiring Women a Stunning Makeover
Russell's wake-up-and-take-notice Oscar de la Renta number is the opposite of her typical ensemble. "Most days I'm surrounded by children, so I like to dress as comfortably as possible," she says. "But it was so nice to go glam for a day."
The Hair and Makeup
Hasanovic lightened Russell's nearly jet-black hair by painting on caramel highlights that enhanced the warmth of her complexion. Melville trimmed her ends and used a wide-barrel curling iron to add voluminous loose waves. Inspired by Russell's pewter manicure, Lucero did a striking smoky eye in navy and cobalt and applied a sheer copper lip gloss to add contrast.
"I've built a career on making myself feel good on the inside, but it's empowering to see that reflected in my appearance. This dress is the perfect representation of how I feel: bright and beautiful."
