Every year Vanity Fair hosts a star-studded bash (what's new?) to kick off Tribeca's annual Film Festival — and one, or should we say two, of our favorites showed up for the cocktail party, despite the fact that, womp womp, she can't drink.

Yep, ladies and gents, we're talking about the lovely (and very pregnant!) Evan Rachel Wood. "For this event, we wanted a glamorous, fun look that was youthful with the right amount of elegance," said her hairstylist, Christopher Naselli.

Here's a step-by-step breakdown of what Naselli did — plus a list of the exact Oribe products he used — to craft Wood's sleek curled bob for the party. But, first, let's take a moment to appreciate that bump of hers, shall we?

See, Kim Kardashian, that is how to dress a baby belly! Sorry for the brief interlude, now back to our regularly scheduled programming, er, hair how-to.

  • First, Naselli prepped damp hair with a thermal protectant spray — the exact one he used was Oribe's Foundation Mist ($23) then he applied Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil ($48), a deep conditioning oil that helps with frizz control, from roots to end for a smooth, shiny blowout.

  • He created a deep side part and used hair gel to slick the top and side sections away from the face, and tucked them neatly behind Wood's ears, securing strands in place with a few duckbill clips.

  • Taking sections from behind the ears and back, he sprayed them with Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray ($33) then wrapped them around a 3/4-inch curling iron. Be sure to set curls completely and let them cool — if you touch them while they're warm, they'll won't hold for nearly as long.

  • Once hair has cooled, he undid the set and gently brushed out each curl, using his hands to form curls into the desired shape. (See how they point away from her face?)
