Awards season has begun, and the entertainment industry is gearing up for the busiest — and glitziest — time of the year. Whether or not you’re an A-lister, conquer your next big event with style and confidence by using these celebrity-inspired tips for awards show prep, courtesy of Kelley Blue Book. From wellness rituals to a perfectly planned arrival, here are secrets straight from the red carpet.

Tap the experts
As much as we love a good DIY, some things are just better left to the pros. For your upcoming soiree, enlist an expert to help with hair, nails and makeup so you can arrive looking as fierce and fabulous as possible. The same rule applies for car shopping: Kelley Blue Book has been around for nearly 100 years and is The Trusted Resource® when it comes to car research, so be sure to browse their Best Buy Awards the next time you need a new vehicle.

Plan your arrival
Make the biggest splash at your event by rolling up in style. Before you hit the red carpet, think about what type of vibe you’re going for — sexy, sweet, mysterious, glam, etc. — and then get the right wheels to match. Need a little help with the process? Check out Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy Awards, which honor the top new model-year vehicles available in the U.S. market in 18 major categories, including the Best New Model winner.

Establish a wellness routine
Prioritizing self-care is crucial if you want to show up as the best you. Before your big night out, establish a solid wellness routine: book that massage, attend your favorite workout class and treat yourself to a fancy face mask. Another key part of self-care? Using the best resources available, like the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards. From the more than 300 new-car models currently on the market in 2022, the Best Buy Awards help shoppers narrow down their new-car consideration list and purchase their next vehicle with confidence.

Get mindful
Prepping for a big event can be exciting — and stressful. Minimize anxiety by practicing mindfulness. Download an app to use before bed or book meditation classes at a local studio. To find even more Zen, check out the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards. The culmination of a year-long regimen of expert vehicle evaluation and testing, the awards are a comprehensive, trustworthy list of everything from performance car, midsize SUV, luxury vehicle and more.
