At the SAG awards, this perennially perky style got sophisticated. Why the herd of ponies? Matrix stylist Enzo Angileri, who gave Charlize Theron her sleek, high, wrapped version, calls the look “effortless, clean, simple, with no tricks or twists.”
Hilary’s style was, well, swank, thanks to her side-swept bangs. It also showed off her $52,000 diamond studs by Cartier.
Ponytails came in every height. Entourage star Chriqui’s medium—height style looked soignée and highlighted her diamond chandelier earrings.
Oh’s normally curly locks were smoothed into a sleek pony that showcased 4-carat, $50,000 diamond studs by Neil Lane.
“The ponytail made her look 4″ taller and very slender,” says Theron’s stylist Enzo Angileri. The vintage Fred Leighton earrings just made her look rich.
The O.C.’s Mischa Barton looks A-okay pairing an Azzaro by Vanessa Seward dress with a Dior jacket at the Late Show with David Letterman.
Behind the Seams
CHARM COOL: “When most people see me, I’m sweating, running and grunting,” says tennis ace Serena Williams. ” So off the court I try to be a little more glamorous.” Which explains the inspiration behind the Exotic Jewels lip glosses she designed as Flirt!’s latest guest creator. The three shades come in different colored gem-like pendant necklaces, allowing wearers to dress up their look as well as their lips….

TATTOO TALE: At the SAG Awards, Hustle & Flow nominee Taryn Manning offered advice for aspiring actresses. “Don’t get tattoos!” she warned. “Or put it where it’s hidden!” She had covered her own arm tattoos—a unicorn and the phrase “I ♥ Boys” with body makeup, because “they remind me of my teenage years. I’m getting them removed. They’re ugly!” Or, at least, no match for her sophisticated black Halston dress.
