3:00 pm
Makeup artist Maital Sabban begins creating "a pop on her eyes," using Chanel Variations eye shadow and Maybelline Great Lash mascara. A mix of pink blush and—Sharapova's fave—Chanel Sirop Glossimer completes the look.

3:30 pm
The blow-out: Hairstylist Sher Rae uses "Kérastase Gelée de Soin volumactive spray—because Maria has fine hair—and the T3, the best blow-dryer on the market."

Next step: 45 minutes of Velcro rollers, which will provide extra volume at the roots. Then Sharapova selects her dress-a gold backless gown by Doo Ri that shows off her shoulders.

4:40 pm
Emerging from her dressing room, she is ready for the final hairstyling step: smoothing and sealing with a curling iron.

5:20 pm
Almost perfect. Sabban applies bronze shimmer lotion and M.A.C translucent powder for the ultimate "natural look. We just kind of enhance," she explains.


Voilà! A striking, sexy vision—in just under three hours

SHARAPOVA'S VERDICT: "I felt very glamorous, very beautiful"
