A quartet of stylists demonstrate the transformative power of the right hair, makeup and accessories.


J Crew Wedding Dress Rent the Runway

The Dress: J. Crew washed crepe Aveline dress, $750 at J. Crew Bridal, 769 Madison Ave., at 66th Street; 212-824-2500



The Look: Retro Glamour

Blaire Rabenhorst, stylist for the Rent the Runway’s newly launched bridal microsite, was angling for “modern Marie Antoinette” when piling on the baubles. “More is more in my eyes,” she says. “You remember an overstylized look, especially in photos.” Colon and Zamora drafted equally memorable hair and makeup- the former back-combing the roots and pulling the hair into a “glitzy and severe” side swept updo, the latter emphasizing the eyes with a Dior brow pencil and MAC faux lashes.


The Accessories:

To get the look, you’ll need the Badgely Mischka Egyptian Sundial Earrings, RJ Graziano Dress Me Up Necklace, Rachel Leigh Crystal Fringe Necklace, Judith Leiber Dreamweaver Clutch and pile up the Ciner Old Hollywood Glamour Bracelets.
