It Takes a Village!
The gorgeous gown, toned figure, flawless head of hair and face of makeup you see on the red carpet is the ultimate squad of beauty, health and fashion gurus. And last night I was honored to attend the 2nd annual Marie Claire Image Maker Awards, a red carpet event that puts the spotlight on the creative artists who work behind the scenes in crafting beauty and fashion looks for some of the Hollywood’s biggest names.
