On Monday evening, some of Hollywood's most famous faces stepped out for the third annual InStyle Awards at Los Angeles’s Getty Center. And among the fashionable attendees: InStyle's very own Fashion and Beauty Editor-at-Large Kahlana Barfield Brown.
Kahlana walked us through her full pre-awards routine—from breakfast in bed (obsessed with those monogrammed pillowcases) to her glam squad powwow.
