Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood at HBO's Mildred Pierce Premiere

The leading ladies of HBO's five-part miniseries Mildred Pierce stepped out in their retro best for the premiere last week.  Both Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood chose body conscious dresses that were inspired by stars of Old Hollywood.  I thought Ms. Wood looked absolutely perfect from head to toe and put together a look that I would love to wear myself.  So polished, she looked classic and sexy all at once.

Kate Winslet's dress was a nod to one worn by Joan Crawford in the original Mildred Pierce

Kate recently cropped her blonde locks and it looked amazing in this retro hairstyle for the premiere.  Want to try it on your own hair?  Renato Campora of Frederic Fekkai tells GlamAmor exactly how he achieved the look and how to recreate it for yourself.  

First, prep hair with Fekkai Full Blown Styling Whip mixed with a little Fekkai Ironless Smooth Finish Serum.  Then blow dry using your fingers and allow the ends of your hair to curl a bit.  When completely dry, wrap your hair using heated metal sticks--which can be bought at any beauty supply store--and let it set for 15 minutes.  Shake the curls loose once the sticks are cool and gently iron out the hair section by section.  Updos are always easiest with a little volume and texture to the hair, so apply some Fekkai Au Naturel Dry Shampoo and use bobby pins to secure each section.  Finally, finish with with a spritz of Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hair Spray all over the hair to hold the style in place.
