Our hair pro gives a big thumbs up to almost all of these hair-and-outfit combos.
BY BROOKE SAGER
A white and black Roberto Cavalli dress with long sleeves and an extreme plunge neckline; her red clutch adds a pop of color.
Hot Or Not: “I’m loving Nicole’s subtler, warmer take on ombré with her very versatile mid-length. Her dress of choice was both elegant and hip—very 1930’s Paris—and worked perfectly with her hair. What can you fault?”
What She Wore: A watercolor Maxime Simoens cocktail dress with a cutout neckline and a cinched waist, paired with lace-up peep toe booties.
Hot Or Not: “Emma’s hair and style fit together perfectly; they’re both very hip in a ‘nightout-in-New York’ kind of way. Her cut is structured but feminine and is complemented by the trendy warmer brunette. She’s a style icon in the making!”
What She Wore: A white Christian Dior Haute Couture gown with a structured bustier top and long train, accessorized with Harry Winston jewelry.
Hot Or Not: “The timelessness and simplicity of this look really lets her dress and hair take the spotlight. I love how her roots give her crop a textured, edgy feel, which pairs well with her clean, retro-yet-modern gown.”
What She Wore: A vibrant orange blouse tucked into skinny cut pleather pants; a tailored black blazer, booties and gold hoop earrings complete her look.
Hot Or Not: “Lisa’s short hair and warm brunette color is fun and timeless—it has an edge, but it’s still feminine and adds the right amount of youthfulness. It’s a perfect match for her night-out outfit, which is hot, hot, hot!”
What She Wore: A strappy floral fit-and-flare sundress with coral sneakers and a clutch to match.
Hot Or Not: “Jen’s glam redcarpet curls are not a good match for this playful summery outfit—it looks too fussy and old for both her and the dress. I would prefer to see her in looser, more effortless waves.”
What She Wore: A black strapless Rafael Cennamo gown with a matching clutch and understated accessories.
Hot Or Not: “Giuliana is the epitome of modern Hollywood here—think red carpet with a splash of runway. Her mid-length bob fits her face well and is styled into loose curls; when paired with her elegant gown, it reflects that understated beauty that we’re seeing more of.”
Hot Or Not: “The 1960s-inspired gamine ’do really looks great on Lucy and works so well with her youthful, fun outfit. Everything about this look says “I am confident.”
What She Wore: A white blouse tucked into striped trousers and gold stack heels, plus an orange Chloé Sally clutch.
Hot Or Not: “This look is a perfect 10—everything from her warm blonde hue, to her short, sleek ’do, to her shoes and clutch tying her entire look together. She looks young, hip and sophisticated all at the same time.”
What She Wore: A white three-quarter-sleeved mini dress with a matching peacoat and black pumps. Her accessories are simple and she carries a mint green tote.
Hot Or Not: “Naomi’s look is perfect. Her clean, neutral blonde color and on-trend cut is current but still classic and timeless. Paired with her all-white ensemble, she looks sexy without really trying.”
What She Wore: A blue tunic over an eggplant tank top, paired with ankle-zip skinny jeans, nude pumps and layered gold necklaces.
Hot Or Not: “Melissa’s midlength hair styled into soft waves works really well with her everyday LA-chic outfit. She looks polished but casual. Plus, her warm brunette hue is trendy and really complements her skin tone.”
