Allure article: Change is Good (January 2010)
by Alyssa Kolsky Hertzig
Makeovers are common. Good makeovers are rare. This is especially true in Hollywood, where transfortmations often push the envelope of physical and surgical possibility. But drastically altering yourself until you're unrecognizable isn't a makeover- it's Halloween. The best transformations are tailored to the individual and cleverly bring out her strenghts. The goal is to create an enhanced, refined version of who you already are. To illustrate the point, Allure asked three actresses to undergo some strategic alternations to their usual hair, makeup, and styling routines. The results celebrate the most important character each woman plays: herself.
[...] Not everyone is so at ease showing off what they've got. Robin Tunney of "The Mentalist" tends to be fairly buttoned-up onscreen and off. "I've been friends with people for 15 years who still don't know I have boobs," she says. The stylists immediately nixed any dress that was too prim or long in favor of tiny, body-hugging numbers (including one that left little doubt about the existence of breasts). Her hair was bulked up with exstensions, while the makeup artist created what she called a "dirty-sexy" look with shadow and so many false lashes that Tunney was finding leftover strays days later. "Being all done up felt sexy and fun", she says. "It was a real transformation, but it definetely felt like a versione of me." And isn't that the point?
"Allure really wanted me to get in touch with my inner slut. There's something so liberating about putting on clothes that I would never normally wear", she says. "And, of course, it's always fun to keep people guessing".
