Cosmetics, started work Friday about 7 a.m., three hours before the Vera Wang show.

There was very little to complain about as veterans such as Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, as well as newbies such as Keira Knightley and Jessica Alba, strolled past a parade of cameras and microphones in one elegant look after another. It was almost disappointing, all that perfection.
