Growing up before moviegoers' eyes, Abigail Breslin ("Little Miss Sunshine") and Georgie Henley ("The Chronicles of Narnia") enter true-crime territory as murderous siblings in the bumpy ride that is "Perfect Sisters. " The film owes whatever persuasiveness it has to the teen leads' sharp performances - their sisterly chemistry and their filial friction with an alcohol-addled mother, well played by Mira Sorvino. Screenwriters Fabrizio Filippo and Adam Till draw upon the so-called Bathtub Girls - Canadian honor students whose trial for matricide grabbed headlines in the mid-2000s - to examine the months leading up to and following the crime.

For celebrity stylist Joey Tierney and event producer Tony Schubert, interior decorating at home isn't much different from handling fashion shoots or Emmy parties. "It's interesting how fashion trends and colors cross over to interiors," Tierney says.  PHOTO GALLERY: Inside Joey Tierney and Tony Schubert's house Tierney may help Ashley Madekwe and Jaime Pressly look glamorous, but at home in Sherman Oaks with Schubert, she admits she is a bit more low key. “At home, I am a minimalist,” Tierney says.

The spat between New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and a Santa Fe hair stylist has gotten as ugly as - dare we say it? - a lousy haircut. Earlier this week, KOB-TV ran an interview with Antonio Darden, who has cut the Republican governor's hair a handful of times. Darden, who is gay, announced he would never do so again unless Martinez dropped her opposition to gay marriage. The spectacle of the stylist's protest worked the Internet into, well, a lather. ( The story lends itself to all sorts of goofy puns.)

Do you ever find yourself running out of the house with wet hair? That's apparently become a good thing, right in line with a beauty trend seen recently on pop stars and in edgy fashion editorials. A new hairstyle dubbed the "wob" (for wet bob) has reached "It" hair status after Beyoncé sported a wet-looking bob-length 'do at the Grammy Awards in February. Miley Cyrus also had damp-looking tresses on the March cover of W magazine, as did Sofia Coppola on the February cover of Italian Vogue.

There's been an outpouring of reaction to the death of L'Wren Scott, the towering, 6-foot-4 fashion figure who started as a model, styled many of Hollywood's leading ladies for the red carpet and went on to create her own high-end clothing line that's been worn by actress Nicole Kidman and First Lady Michelle Obama, among other well-known fashion fans. Scott's assistant found her body in her apartment in New York's Chelsea neighborhood. Though there are widespread reports she was found hanged, police would say only that no criminal activity was suspected and the coroner is investigating.  Scott was romantically linked to Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger and helped style the band's stage looks.

Kerry Washington's baby bump, draped in custom Jason Wu, was at the center of her gorgeous Oscar ensemble, but her relaxed waves punctuated the look. Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, Washington's hair stylist of the last 15 years, breaks down the "Scandal" star's winning Oscar beauty: "I saw the Jason Wu dress and knew right away that she had to have a lot of hair and texture," says Sturdivant-Drew.

Grammy nominee for Album of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, Sara Bareilles, stepped out onto Sunday's red carpet wearing her hair wavy and heavily textured. Her hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp calls it “rough, beautiful hair to complement her soft, feminine Blumarine gown.” To achieve the look, Beauchamp started by prepping her damp hair with Garnier Fructis Style Deconstructed Beach Chic Texturizing Spray. He created the texture by rough-drying the hair and then twisting parts of it into loose cornrow braids from the front to the back of Bareilles' head.

Several stars and E! Network red carpet hosts have mentioned that the Screen Actors Guild Awards has the “most fun and easy-going red carpet” of the season. The tousled, wavy tresses sported by some actresses is proof. Anna Gunn's textured waves were refreshingly easy to achieve and a deliberate choice to differentiate from the actress' recent string of up-dos on red carpets. Hair stylist Aviva Perea started by prepping Gunn's hair with Phytovolume Volumizing Spray from roots to ends and blew out her hair with a large Spornette Mixed Bristle Brush.

In certain circles, the Oscars red carpet generates more buzz than the awards ceremony itself. That two-hour window when stars stroll, preen and gush often showcases the results of hours and hours of prepping by a team of experts tasked with readying their client to face a sea of photographers and impromptu interviews - to say nothing of the worldwide TV audience and the crush of off-camera media in critique mode. For an event as big as this one, that team often includes a fashion stylist, tailor, hairdresser and makeup artist.
