Snacks, Pals & Blackberries: How the Stars Got Ready for the Globes

01/16/2007 at 05:50 PM ET

How exactly does one prepare for hitting the red carpet (and all those cameras)? Here is some chatter we heard from some of our favorite stars at last night’s Golden Globes.

Heidi Klum in Givenchy: “We started early, at maybe 11 am. I glued on lashes, put on some base, some blush, put the hair up, got dressed. It doesn’t take that long. It’s what I do!”

Patricia Arquette in Riser Goodwyn: “I brush my teeth — that’s essential. I wash [my] face. It was an all-day affair. My sister [Rosanna] and I were working on it since 10 in the morning.”

Sheryl Crow in Elie Saab: “My ritual involves a strong cup of coffee, two or three newspapers, and the BlackBerry.”

Julia-Louis Dreyfus in Carolina Herrera: “The makeup thing I find daunting. I know to hire a really good hair and makeup team. They do everything. I sit there and try to stay as calm as possible.”

Penelope Cruz in Chanel Couture: “I can do my makeup and hair myself, by myself. I can do my friends’ hair. I’ve done Salma Hayek’s hair many times. You should ask her about that.”

Jada Pinkett Smith in Armani Privé: “Does this one, my husband [Will Smith], help me get ready? Today we were almost late. He takes his sweet time.”

Kyra Sedgwick in J. Mendel: “I saw [the dress] at the show in the fall, and I thought it was really beautiful. Kevin [her husband] always puts my dress on me and my bra.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal in Yves St. Laurent”: “He [fiance Peter Saarsgaard] wasn’t even dressed ten minutes before we left.”
Peter: “I deejayed.”
Maggie: “I’m really trying not to get caught up in getting back in shape. l [had a] big breakfast.”

Ali Larter in Reem Acra: “My boyfriend comes over to eat some lunch before I leave the house. We try to keep it calm and relaxing.”

Edie Falco in Kevan Hall: “The makeup artist came early and left early. I had a chance to read a paper and drink coffee with all my makeup on.

I’d be very interested to know who sheryl Crow’s date was. They seemed very close.

No matter how much I love fashion, the most important part of awards season should be about the films, TV, or music they are honoring. Not dresses, hair, and makeup. It’s disgusting to see where society is being led.


Beautiful Lady,she looked Elegant!!

Heidi Klum and Seal are the greatest famous couple ever!!! I just smile when I see them. Speaking of stars getting ready for the globes. WHAT WAS WITH MARIA MENUNOS? I think Maria did not get ready properly for the event. She clearly forgot to bring her integrity. Her questions and comments to America were horrible. Talk about a real life Ugly Betty moment. I’m sure Ferrera is too level headed to take it to heart. She was the heart of the evening! Like most girls I do critique fashion because I want women to feel and look their best. I think all women are beautiful and America Fererra is gorgeous and so loveable, I’ll be happy to see her with a great guy someday soon!

I really liked the sandals Sienna Miller is wearing at the Godiva Hearts on Fire event in Century City, California. Can you please tell me where I could get the shoes. Thanx.

Hedi Klum’s makeup artist should have got rid of the shine on her face…it looks awful.

some of the stars didn’t look like they spent early ENOUGH time. (arquette sisters, jennifer love, seinna…)

Heidi is pretty but, it looks like Heidi has had too much of a nose job!?
Is it me or does it look like her nostrils were shaved off alittle too much!?
And, she and Seal do make a lovely couple!

I liked Heidi’s makeup it wasn’t to heavy, just right.

She is so beautiful and I loved her white gown and gloves.

I really was disappointed with a lot of the outfits that the stars where wearing. Even their hair. I did like Reese’s and Sheryl’s hair but that was about it. I just have a hard time to blieve that some of them had hair stylists.

What was Beyonce Knowles thinking really. Lately her fashion statement is coming off as “NOTICE ME NOTICE ME” In the worse possible way.

Beautiful forehead and looks very nice with her hair pulled back and a gracious smile.
