Snacks, Pals & Blackberries: How the Stars Got Ready for the Globes

Posted on

How exactly does one prepare for hitting the red carpet (and all those cameras)? Here is some chatter we heard from some of our favorite stars at last night’s Golden Globes.

Heidi Klum in Givenchy: “We started early, at maybe 11 am. I glued on lashes, put on some base, some blush, put the hair up, got dressed. It doesn’t take that long. It’s what I do!”

Patricia Arquette in Riser Goodwyn: “I brush my teeth — that’s essential. I wash [my] face. It was an all-day affair. My sister [Rosanna] and I were working on it since 10 in the morning.”

Sheryl Crow in Elie Saab: “My ritual involves a strong cup of coffee, two or three newspapers, and the BlackBerry.”

Julia-Louis Dreyfus in Carolina Herrera: “The makeup thing I find daunting. I know to hire a really good hair and makeup team. They do everything. I sit there and try to stay as calm as possible.”

Penelope Cruz in Chanel Couture: “I can do my makeup and hair myself, by myself. I can do my friends’ hair. I’ve done Salma Hayek’s hair many times. You should ask her about that.”

Jada Pinkett Smith in Armani Privé: “Does this one, my husband [Will Smith], help me get ready? Today we were almost late. He takes his sweet time.”

Kyra Sedgwick in J. Mendel: “I saw [the dress] at the show in the fall, and I thought it was really beautiful. Kevin [her husband] always puts my dress on me and my bra.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Yves St. Laurent”: “He [fiance Peter Saarsgaard] wasn’t even dressed ten minutes before we left.”
Peter: “I deejayed.”
Maggie: “I’m really trying not to get caught up in getting back in shape. l [had a] big breakfast.”

Ali Larter in Reem Acra: “My boyfriend comes over to eat some lunch before I leave the house. We try to keep it calm and relaxing.”

Edie Falco in Kevan Hall: “The makeup artist came early and left early. I had a chance to read a paper and drink coffee with all my makeup on.
