That old black magic - aka hair, makeup, to-die clothes, and genius photography - works every time. Here, our cover secrets...

IN THE HOT SEAT: Hairstylist Rolando Beauchamp and makeup artist Genevieve chose a darker look to reflect the mood of the set. "I gave her bright lips and false lashes, which lent her an edge and worked well with her personal style," says Genevieve; Beauchamp worked "with the texture of Maggie's wavy hair, as opposed to against it," he says. "She's normally never happy with her hair, but she loved this look." Despite being four-months pregnant, Gyllenhaal arrived on set promptly at 6:30 a.m. (!). "She was very sweet," says Beauchamp. "A genuine star, but without the star attitude."
