Davis worked with celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart to create the look. Stewart also works with Jessica Chastain, Zoey Deutch and Amanda Seyfried.
For makeup, the actress went for an evening-ready look, including a glossy tinted lip, heavy blush and dramatic eye makeup, including coordinating smokey black and pink eye shadow, heavy eyeliner and eye-popping mascara. She had her hair done in a short style and parted to one side with slight waves at the ends.
