Nicholas Sparks’ beloved romantic dramas, a genre he nearly invented, are strong box office draws when adapted to the big screen, with now-classics (The Notebook, anyone?) producing well-worn DVDs and making household names of actresses like Rachel McAdams and Taylor Schilling. The author’s latest adaptation stars Michelle Monaghan and James Marsden as reunited lovers in October’s The Best of Me.
Monaghan’s makeup artist Shane Paish (who is also the International Beauty Expert for Dior) followed the actress along for the film’s global press tour which took the stars to exotic locales like India. Lucky for us, Monaghan’s photographer husband Peter White (along with Paish) documented their trip exclusively for InStyle, providing us with a behind the scenes glimpse of Michelle’s red carpet looks and their inspirations, as well as some of the fun sightseeing adventures the crew was able to squeeze in.
