The nail team, led by Christina Estabrooks for CND, created an amazing stained glass manicure. To get the look, a layer of gold chrome was painted on the nails, followed by a reverse french with Midnight Sapphire. While the Midnight Sapphire polish was still wet, the stained glass technique was put into action by dropping polish on top of the wet polish, and allowing it to pool. The polishes used to create the stained glass effect were Iced Blue Shimmer, more Midnight Sapphire, and finally, Gold Pearl. Once the polish dries and sets, nails were detailed with 24 k Gold Sparkle Effects.

The makeup team, led by Polly Osmond for MAC Cosmetics, created a look that was both powerful, yet understated. Skin and lips were left clean and fresh, nuded and mostly untouched. For the eyes, a bit of Chromagraphic pencil on the waterline, and a strong golden brow created with a mixture of Gold Pigment, and Gold Reflects Glitter.

The hair was a sight to behold as well. A twisted updo, winding up the side of the head to come to a twist up top.
