When faced with a week that included two movie premieres, several TV appearances and the legendary Costume Institute Gala, she called in her glam squad. Now, stylist Mary Alice Stephenson, hairstylist Ted Gibson and makeup artist Matin give us the scoop on Monaghan's scene-stealing style. For the Design Cares benefit, Stephenson paired a fuchsia Marchesa design with an Erickson Beamon belt: "With volume like that dress, it's good to have focus on the waist." 02 of 06 April 24, 2008 Charles Sykes/Rex Features For the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Trucker, Monaghan donned a Bill Blass dress designed by Peter Som. "She's a truck driver in [the movie] and she's sweaty and dirty, so we wanted a masculine-inspired look, but still really, really sexy," says Stephenson. The black and white dress proved to be Monaghan's favorite of the week. "I have a boyish quality to me, so that had a toughness that I loved," the actress says. 03 of 06 April 28, 2008 Theo Wargo/WireImage For a visit to TRL, Stephenson accessorized a Tony Cohen ruffled dress with charm necklaces from Subversive Jewelry. "We kept the hair down a lot and it's a great time for big, fun chunky jewelry," says Stephenson. "[Bold jewelry] gives something girly an edge." 04 of 06 April 28, 2008 Debra L. Rothenberg/Startraks For the Manhattan premiere of Made of Honor, Monaghan donned a black and gray ombre gown that stood in high-contrast to the venue's bright decor. "Everything was pink, so that was our edgy version of doing girly-girly," says Stephenson. Monaghan's sexy new fringe also added edge. "I think that the bangs are banging," says her hairstylist Ted Gibson. "She likes for her hair to make a statement." 05 of 06 April 29, 2008 Mark Von Holden/WireImage Monaghan ankled her way into a Made of Honor screening in a high-water suit from men's designer Thom Browne. "Michelle's great because she lets me have fun and play with new designs," says Stephenson. "We just have fun with fashion; it's getting to play dress up." 06 of 06 April 30 Joe Kohen/WireImage Monaghan made the scene at the Free Arts N.Y.C. benefit in an Erin Fetherston dress accessorized with Subversive necklaces. "It's so fun and flirtatious," Stephenson says of the dress. "Michelle has such amazing legs, so I wanted to show those off." Makeup artist Matin also keeps the star's natural beauty on display. "[She] has beautiful freckles so I am careful to not cover them up," he says.
