While you were ogling Emma Stone's Golden Globes jumpsuit from your couch, InStyle's fashion and beauty editor-at-large was busy chatting about it with Al Roker on the Today Show—on "almost zero sleep" post-after-partying, no less. For Kahlana Barfield, it's all in a day's work.

We followed Kahlana, a ten-year veteran of the magazine, on her weekend in L.A., sweating it out with trainer Ngo Okafor at Flatiron's Peak Performance, filming a segment with Wendy Williams, and scoping out the best of spring's beauty arrivals.
