Holiday Party Guide: Eat, Drink, and Still Be Slim
If All Else Fails, You Can Dress 10 Pounds Thinner
Style maverick Carson Kressley, host of the new Lifetime show How to Look Good Naked, dresses you slim.
- Spoil yourself. "Visit your hairstylist or get a fresh manicure -- do the thing that makes you feel extra pretty. You'll have a boost of confidence before you even arrive at the party," says Kressley.
- No restrictions. "Tightly fitting clothes are too constricting; you came to the party to let loose," he says. "Wear the dress that makes you feel the most attractive. You won't want to spoil your look by overeating, and you'll be too busy flirting to think about food." Curve-hugging cashmere and wool knit dresses are very "in the moment," he notes. For a festive spin, swap your little black frock for a tomato-red number that shows some leg.
- Be self-assured. "Remember, no one at the party is offering the unique package that you have," says Kressley. "Flaunt what you've got!"
