"To create Minka's side chignon, I loosely gathered her hair at the nape of her neck and braided it before looping it back up and pinning it into a messy cluster," hairstylist Mark Townsend told InStyle.com. "I let some of her layers fall out around her face because I thought it gave her Dior gown a soft, romantic feel. I finished with a blend of Sally Hershberger Star Shine Spray and Dove Extra Hold Hairspray." 10 of 10 2012 Jordan Strauss/WireImage Kelly took a modern approach to classic red lips with a sheer gloss.
