To complete her look, hairstylist Lorenzo Martin wanted to spice things up by playing off of the crimson shade. “The red dress was reminiscent of an Italian beauty, so we created a sultry look with a half up half down hairstyle,” he tells InStyle.com.
The finishing touch? Her mani, which was also customized to blend in with the overall theme. Nail expert Tom Bachik made a custom rose gold polish to match the skin tones that her red dress brought out.
