How does a Hollywood star get ready for a major awards show? We asked Mayim Bialik to document her day ahead of the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, and she gave us everything from a glimpse of a load of laundry to a peek inside her purse before she hit the red carpet with an unidentified date. The Big Bang Theory star's preshow prep included folding laundry, making vegan quesadillas for her two boys, and sharing her favorite de-stressor trick: chewing on sour grass. (Click the image above or HERE to see the full slideshow of photos from Mayim's Instagram takoever.)
But then it was time for the actress to get her glam on, and that meant pulling out her trusty bag of hair extensions and letting her team — makeup guru Linda Cowan, hair pro Robert Ramos, and stylist Adena Rohatiner — work their magic before she slipped into a custom body-skimming, black mermaid gown from Christian Siriano. Mayim's fans couldn't wait to see the full reveal, which played out on Yahoo TV's Instagram page.
Mayim also gave us the full deets on her look via a cheat sheet tucked inside in her Amanda Pearl bag! In addition to essentials like cash, lip gloss, and her driver's license, the star's cute clutch included a sticky note that read: "Dress: Christian Siriano; Bag: Amanda Pearl; Shoes: Via Spiga; Earrings: Ivanka Trump."
While Big Bang Theory didn't take home the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, Mayim's look was a definite win.

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
