"Swatches of plums for Naomi. Inspiration was the tone of lips in the cold, a lot of blue undertones — red-carpet version, of course."

"I splurged on a driver so I could arrive at my clients' houses calm and organized. I kept hydrated with my favorite Pressed Juices and Clark's Botanicals lip balm. Rain in L.A. adds another layer of stress I don't want to take on."

"With Naomi, it's always about family. I feel like an honorary Watts after all these years together. Brother Ben took this photo, and sister-in-law Jeanann is also [her] stylist. Jenny Cho did Naomi's beautiful hair and is about to become a mother."

"Detail from the amazing Schiaparelli outfit Miley wore tonight. She did her own makeup in this tour-book photo, which inspired the eye. Miley is really talented at makeup and my favorite collaborator. And she's not afraid of glitter and neon."

"When I think of Miley, I think gold, diamonds, glitter and pops of bright color. We had fun with her look for the Elton John party, and fun setting up this shot. "Mileywood" is one of my favorite places to visit. MAC Cosmetics, Tom Ford and Beautyblender helped with the sparkle."
