The Making Of. 

The bodice adornments were applied on the body. Mindful of risking Karen’s fair complexion and red hair veering too far into Elizabethan territory, her glam squad avoided high hair, white-out paint and the centered cupid’s bow. They instead gave her a modern touch via sleek hair, a slightly-winged eye and full lip, rather than replicating Karen as Queen Elizabeth by Kevyn Aucoin, below right.

The Carry-Off.

This was a whole lot of look, that could have gone wrong in less capable hands. Karen carried it with a mix of regal air, humor, ease, and joy.     And she Shut. It. Down.
