Amanda Seyfried clearly got word of the grumbles and groans over her less-than-stellar look at the Les Miserables world premiere—it wasn't only her, did you see what the rest of the cast was wearing?—because whoa did she bring it last night.

Here's an up-close peek at her beauty look:
Translate Seyfried's Les Mis look into a more everyday-appropriate style by dialing down the volume and thickness of your plait. Slick hair back, like the actress, by running smoothing cream through your mane, then braid hair into smaller, easier-to-manage bun. (Click here for a step-by-step braided bun tutorial.)
Next, give your romantic hairdo vixen-like edge with a serious cat-eye a la Seyfried. Urban Decay's Naked2 Eye Palette ($50 at Sephora.com) has the smoldering copper, gray, and black shadows you'll need to amp up the drama.

For laser-like precision while drawing the outline of your cat-eye, use an angled brush like Trish McEvoy's Angled Eye-Lining Brush #50 ($25 at NeimanMarcus.com). It'll make your lines looked more defined and, thus, super-sultry.
