Timeless beauty Nicole Kidman looks as comfortable on horseback as she does strolling down the red carpet. Softly defined eyes, arched eyebrows and a glossy pink-toned lip color highlight her retro appeal.
Emily Blunt, who suited up recently in voluminous gowns to play "Young Victoria," looks pretty as a picture in silvery blue shadow, rosy cheeks and a pale pink pout.
