Jennifer Garner looked classically stunning, from head-to-toe, at the 20th Annual SAG Awards held Saturday, Jan. 18 in Los Angeles. The 41-year-old actress was nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award for “Dallas Buyers Club,” which went to the cast of “American Hustle”.

Although she didn’t win, Jennifer served as presenter for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, which went to her “Dallas Buyers Club” co-star Jared Leto. Rarely one to make a misstep on the Red Carpet, last night was no different as Jennifer wore a strapless, navy silk bustier Max Mara custom gown and Brian Atwood shoes that were accented with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and David Webb jewelry.

Jennifer’s longtime stylist Adir Abergel, and TME favorite, whipped up yet another amazing “Adir A-do”. Adir shares that his inspiration for the look was, “An airy romantic updo with texture and movement … a modern and fresh style glamorously swept off the face to elongate the neck”.

Adir started the hairstyle by spraying Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray all over Jennifer’s hair to create a rougher texture to the hair and to help keep Jennifer’s bangs back off her face. Adir then rough-dried the hair until it was completely dry and took random sections and curled them with a 1/2-inch iron in “no particular direction,” to create a romantic texture.

Once the texture was applied, he rubbed Kusco Murphy Lavender Cream into his palms like a hand cream and swept it through her hair to get it to stay back. When recreating the look, Adir said, “To secure in place, begin by pinning both sides of the hair back right below the crown and then continued to secure sections below in a knotted fashion. Once all sections are knotted and secured resulting in a beautiful shape, finish with Fekkai Sheer Hold Hair Spray to hold the style in place.
