The ladies of ‘Smash’ look no less than smashing on their January 11 cover of ‘Entertainment Weekly.’ They each easily pull off their classy and sassy Old Hollywood hair and makeup. Who do YOU think looks best in this retro glam look? Vote!

Jennifer Hudson, 31, is joining gorgeous singers Katharine McPhee, 28, and Megan Hilty, 31, in the cast of Smash, and she flawlessly blends in to the show’s glamorous Broadway diva style. Each of these hot gals is giving Marilyn Monroe’s iconic style a try- and pulling it off seamlessly.

Though these talented ladies are all glammed up for their cover look, this style is far from being costume-y — it’s actually completely wearable! Jet black winged liquid eyeliner is the key trick that gives the ladies’ styles a completely retro glam nod. Thickly lined upper lids with softer underlined lower lashes instantly wake up your look with a wide-eyed feel.

Take a break from the heavy red lipstick and cake foundation if you are trying out this look. Paired with shimmering nude lip color and luminous, perfect skin, the singers show us how to keep the look modern and fresh. Edgy black lacquered nails offer a great finishing touch for this look: sleek and simple, the color adds drama without detracting from the sophisticated style.

Jennifer, Megan, and Katharine also show off bombshell waves that go on for days! Their long locks are soft and flowing, easily making for a sultry, modern style. Brush out your curls to get looser waves packed with sexy volume.

HollywoodLifers, who do YOU think wears retro hair and makeup best?

Good premise but hands down the worst show on TV.
