All anyone could say when Angela walked out was simply "Oh my gosh!"

Her stunning layered bob is courtesy of hairstylist Arsen Gurgov and the auburn hue selected by Louis Licari is the perfect complement for her skin tone. It even matches Alyssa's gorgeous hair!

Jill Martin styled Courtney in an awesome outfit that can walk the line between casual and dressy. "If you're going to buy one piece of outerwear, a vest is the way to go," Jill said of the quilted leather vest.
