5 Celebrity Stylist Tips for the Perfect Red Carpet Look

Jennifer Lawrence was a winner and a head-turner in a stunning red Dior gown at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.  To help every woman look and feel like an A-list starlet, celebrity stylist George Kotsiopoulos from E!'s Fashion Police, has a few tips:

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RIGHT FOUNDATION

No matter how chic your outfit is, it’s important to get all the details right and that includes a stunning silhouette and beautifully moisturized skin. Make sure to use a body shaper under your dress (yes, we all need a little cinch now and then!) and get glowing skin with dermatologist tested Suave® Skin Solutions Advanced Therapy Body Lotion. It has rich hydrators that moisturize the skin’s surface to make skin smooth, soft and more beautiful. Plus, it is clinically proven to moisturize for up to 24 hours – so you can look fabulous from dawn ‘til dusk.
GET THE FIT RIGHT

The right tailoring can make or break an outfit. Most women have a hard time finding dresses that fit their bodies right off the rack. If you try on a gown and it pulls in all the wrong places, go a size larger and then find a good tailor to make it perfect for your body (pull in the waist, hug the hips, hem up the straps and any other details).
MAKE A STATEMENT – JUST ONE!

When we think about accessorizing, it is sometimes tough not to go overboard, but always remember that you need just one focal point with every award-winning outfit. If you’re wearing an elaborate dress, keep everything else very simple (including hair, make-up and accessories). On the other hand, if your dress is very simple, then pair with it elaborate jewels or dramatic hair and makeup so that you to really stand out.

BE BOLD WITH COLOR
Black is always chic (and safe).  But unless it’s over-the-top, it can be forgettable and that’s no way to win “best dressed” this season. Make an entrance by wearing a bold color that flatters your skin tone. We all have one color that elicits multiple compliments every time we wear it and that is your best color. 

Of course, color will not truly shine if your skin doesn’t look radiant, so pair this bold look with Suave® Skin Solutions Smoothing Body Lotion with Cocoa Butter & Shea. It has a new, richer formula that instantly relieves dryness to soften rough, dry skin and replenishes moisture for up to 24 hours.

BE YOURSELF

Don’t worry about trends or what everyone else might be wearing. Use your own sense of style to choose an A-list ensemble. Wear what you feel confident in and what looks great on you; not only will you look amazing, but your confidence will radiate.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

Change Your Diet to Reduce Stress: 3 Easy Dietary Tips for Women

April is Stress Awareness Month .  But strategies to reduce and manage stress are welcome any time of the year.   Studies show that women are more likely  than  men to report high levels of stress, and for African American women  chronic or daily stress is even more problematic.  While we tend to think of approaching stress management from an emotional wellbeing and physical health standpoint, we don't often associate making  dietary  changes with reducing stress and anxiety.   While scheduling an appointment with your  primary  care doctor and seeking help  from a therapist or spiritual advisor may still be necessary to help address the underlying reasons for why you're feeling stressed and the degree to which your  stress  affects your life, here are a few food for thought tips from  Constance Brown-Riggs, MSEd, RDN, CDCES, CDN, nutrition consultant and author Diabetes Guide to Enjoying Foods of the World .  Swap your  morning  coffee with a cup of warm tea .   “The key to
