While it’s true awards season is winding down, that doesn’t mean other big events aren’t about to crank up the heat (wedding season is quickly approaching!). Slim-Fast is encouraging women to turn special occasions—a red carpet event, wedding, vacation, reunion or something else spectacular—into a major “wow!” moment that leaves people turning heads.

So how can you get your “wow” on? Slim-Fast gathered a team of experts to create the Studio WOW! team, including fashion stylist Jacqui Stafford, celebrity hair and makeup stylist Joey Maalouf (he did Jessica Alba’s hair for this year’s Golden Globes!) famous photographer known for his role on America’s Next Top Model, Nigel Barker, and Slim-Fast nutritionist Ali Auerbach, R.D.

We nabbed some quick tips from the pros to help you dazzle the audience at your next event.

From fashion stylist Jacqui Stafford:

  • Embrace color. “I’ve never met a woman who doesn’t look good in red,” Stafford says. “She always looks confident, classic and feminine.” Try a dress in the vibrant hue that closely follows your frame for a slimming effect.
  • It’s all about the little things. Stafford showed us five fast, simple ways to change a look using only one accessory. Can you guess it? A scarf! Tie it around your waist for a belted look, or drape it for the circle scarf look that’s hot right now.
  • Don’t douse yourself with trends. We’re all about pulling brilliant ideas from the runway, but remember to keep it realistic. “Fuschia is a hot color for spring,” Stafford says. “Incorporate it into your look with accessories, like an eye-catching handbag or belt.”
