02/22/2012 by OnTheRedCarpet.com Staff

Rachel Smith is getting ready to interview celebrities on the red carpet of the 84th Academy Awards on February 26. To prepare, the "On The Red Carpet" co-host is interviewing top wardrobe stylists, makeup artists and hairstylists in award show fashion for a web series called "Best Dressed" featured on Oscar.com.

So far, Smith has worked with style expert George Kotsiopoulos to find the perfect dress for the night and in her latest episode, Smith visited celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves to perfect her Oscar hairdo.

Paves gave Smith a few different looks to choose from, including an effortless style with Smith's long locks down, an elegant updo, a style with a bit of Hollywood glam and a short, fun updo.

Smith will be on the red carpet at the Oscars before the big show interviewing nominees, directors and other celebs for "On The Red Carpet At The Oscars" set to air on February 26, 1:30 p.m. PT to 4 p.m. PT. Check out local listings here. Smith's video with Paves can be seen below.
