Elisabeth Röhm's American Hustle Premiere Diary
As snow falls outside, Elisabeth Röhm stays warm in her robe while her curls set in preparation for the premiere of her new crime drama, American Hustle, in N.Y.C. on Sunday. "I love light makeup and a pop of color," she says of the lipstick she and makeup artist Liam Dunn chose for the big night out. "I didn't want to overdo it with a heavy eye."
"I chose the green because it felt like a holiday dress," the actress says of her Randi Rahm gown. "It was simple, elegant and warm. What do you think?" David Yurman earrings and a Judith Leiber Couture clutch finish the look.
ALL TAPED UP
Red carpet secret revealed: stars often have a little help getting their gowns to stay where they should. "It's true – I'm taped in!" Röhm says. Her stylist Ruthanne Rosen does the dirty work as the actress holds her dress in place.
Behold, the finished product! "I always take a moment to be grateful," the actress says of this shot, in which she gets ready to head to New York City's Ziegfeld Theater to walk the press line. There's much to be thankful for with this role: American Hustle is already garnering awards and rave reviews ahead of its Dec. 20 release.
STRIKE A POSE
Stepping forward to face photographers, "my thoughts are always the same," Röhm says. Her top tips? "Stand still and don't make any faces you'll regret. Stillness works well!"
"With my hubby," the actress captions this after-party shot snapped with Jeremy Renner (she portrays his wife in the movie). Joining the pair is Röhm's Aunt Nancy, whom she often writes about on her PEOPLE blog.
