The star of the new movie The Roommate-and hottest Yankees fan alive-has the casual-glam thing down pat. In the March 2011 issue of Glamour, Minka Kelly shows off four ways to do that effortless sexy thing in a snap. Take a look!
Weekend Sexy: a Loose Side Braid
Don't waste precious downtime on your hair-just copy 30-year-old Minka's 60-second style. Make a loose side braid, then secure with an elastic or wrap a piece of your own hair around the end and pin. Pair it with a flirty pink lipstick like Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour in Pink Me Up.

Bombshell Sexy: Natural, Glowy Eyes and Skin
Yes, you can do va-voom makeup with a natural palette. Smudge an earthy, metallic shadow on lids and define eyes with winged liner and mascara. Try L'Oréal Paris Le Kohl Duo Shadow & Liner. Dust bronzer on your cheeks and set the whole thing off with nude lipstick. For sexy hair, use a body booster like Biolage Volumizing Whipped Mousse. Brigitte Bardot would be proud.
Girlfriend Sexy: Happy Coral Lips
It's a look that hits the beauty sweet spot: Men and women love it. Slip on a bright, comfy sweater, a slouchy hat and (the key) happy coral lipstick. Look for a pinky-toned shade if you have fair or medium skin. Go with something orangey if your skin is dark.

Date-Night Sexy: the Easiest Updo
With this hot jeans-and-dressy-top combo, who needs complicated hair? Just pull it up, pin wherever and go. To make sure all that skin you're baring looks and feels soft, slather on a moisturizer right after you shower; we like the nicely priced Olay Silk Whimsy Body Lotion.
Halter, D&G; jeans, Current/Elliott; ring, Scosha.
Gorgeous, right? You can read more about Minka and her infallible combination of down-to-earth and gorgeous on page 288 of our March 2011 issue (and see why her unfussy brand of glam makes her look good even in a simple 'ol Yankees cap!).
