Combination of the two

No matter what their look, Ciwt enjoyed Felicity Huffman's description of what it likely took to achieve it

"It takes a village, I'm not kidding. Of course it starts with a shower -- yoga and then a shower and then you've got your stylist and your hair person and your makeup person and Spanx and I don't know… fake hair," Huffman said, before adding that her husband brings her glam squad total to five people. "He makes drinks for everyone!"
