How Celebs get red carpet ready! *Cost and pics*

    Facial?$345 for a series of three
    If you want to get gorgeous for Oscar, you'll need to start at least three weeks ahead of curtain time, says Ole Henriksen, owner of the Ole Henriksen spa in Los Angeles, pictured here. Celebrities like Renée Zellweger and Ellen DeGeneres, he says, indulge in a regimen of $345 facials (some cleansing, o thers restorative) in the weeks leading up to the show.
    Perfect Hair?Up to $4,000
    Best Actress nominees such as Penelope Cruz might turn to such top stylists as Sam Leonardi, whose services can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000, depending on the celebrity and the complexity of the job. Basic styling obviously comes cheaper than an elaborate updo.
    Celebrity Stylist ?$7,000
    Stylists select Oscar-worthy tuxedos for male nominees and dresses and accessories for females. Jennifer Rade, for example, has been styling Angelina Jolie for years, and she chose the slate gray strapless dress by St. John that Jolie wore to the 2007 Golden Globes.
    Glowing Skin?$400 to $600 for Triad medical facial, $400 for medicure pedicure
    Wear a million-dollar necklace or a $10,000 pair of shoes, and chances are that cameras will shoot close-ups of your neck and feet. Dermatologists like Dr. David Colbert at the New York Dermatology Group, pictured here, offer a medicure pedicure (laser resurfacing, exfoliating and hair removal for the feet) and a Triad medical facial for the neck (microdermabrasion, laser resurfacing and a glycolic peel) to smooth rough skin.

    Training Session at Peak Performance ?$110 per session, 6 times a week
    Trainer Lauren Goldberg of New York exercise studio Peak Performance recommends celebrities come in at least 3 to 6 months in advance if they want the body definition needed to wear short dresses, plunging back lines or skinny fitting tuxedos.
    Session With Celebrity Makeup Artist ?From $2,000, depending on the artist
    For nominated actors and actresses, studios enlist the services of such top makeup artists as Dior Beauty spokeswoman Pati Dubroff. She'll be doing Kate Winslet's makeup for this year's show.

    Sessions With a Nutritional Coach?$8,000 for six months, $12,000 for the year
    Nutritionist Dr. Oz Garcia's programs not only take into consideration the daily stress levels of his clients, but also their sleeping and eating habits, workload and of course whether they want to lose, maintain or gain weight. Clients include Hilary Swank.
    The Perfect Smile
    $500 to $1,000 for bleaching, $1,500 and up per tooth for veneers
    Stars looking for teeth as bright as those of Eva Longoria might turn to Zoom tooth-whitening sessions. Each cost from $500 to $1000 and uses high levels of peroxide combined with a UV light to make teeth 6 to 10 shades whiter. For a more permanent smile makeover, celebrities pay for porcelain veneers to make teeth not just bright but uniform in appearance.

    Mini-Face Lift?$1,500 to $2,000 with Titan laser
    For talent intimidated by a needle and scalpel, the Titan laser mini-face lift is a less invasive alternative. The laser's infrared light heats the dermis and stimulates collagen production, leaving skin looking tighter, firmer and more youthful. There are no stitches to remove, and downtime is minimal.

    Spray-On Tanning
    $85 to $100, extra $5 to $10 for contouring
    Why bake when you can spritz? Stars wanting a bronzed look without prolonged sun exposure simply have their tans air-brushed on at such salons as Rita Hazan's in New York, pictured here. For a little extra, you can have your tan shaded in areas to emphasize muscles or cleavage.
