"She's really fun and takes great thought and care when getting ready," says stylist Karla Welch, who got Paula glam for the Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol international press tour with ensembles like this Azzaro catsuit and gold-star Dolce & Gabbana heels. The eye-catching outfit, worn to the film's Tokyo premiere, will work the same magic at a stylish New Year's Eve soiree.
