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

Celebrate the Holiday Season with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City

Watching the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater makes me proud to be a Black woman. This ballet company is graced by dancers of color who can tackle any technique or dance style. But whether the choreography is rooted in jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop or ballet, they do it the Ailey way, which means they move with so much culturally rooted soulfulness and swag that I find myself marveling at their languid form and fierce footwork. In my lifetime, I've seen the Ailey company perform at least a dozen times and each time I picked a performance that included Mr. Ailey's beloved "Revelations." I will never grow tired of witnessing this jubilant homage to the Black Southern Baptist church. By the end I'm always standing, singing and clapping along with the rest of the audience's Amen chorus. Yes, rock a my soul in the bosom of Abraham ! Like most theatrical events and performing arts programs, this is Ailey's comeback season after going dark in 2020 due to

Spring Cleaning: Clean Out Your Closet and Earn Extra Cash

Remember clothing?  As much as we love our athleisure, we can still recall what it was like to wake up and put on something other than hoodies, T-shirts, joggers and leggings. And now that coronavirus vaccines are available and we're resuming some sort of normalcy, we look forward to traveling again and meeting up with fellow vaccinated family and friends for brunch and outdoor fun (still wearing masks and socially distancing in public spaces). We also look forward to refreshing our wardrobe.  But if you want to make room for new garments, it's time to declutter and find a new home for the clothes, shoes and accessories you haven't worn in a season. Donating to a thrift store or charitable organization is always a good option.  For certain items in new or nearly new condition, however, you can also earn some cash by selling them at a consignment shop.   Here are several e-commerce and retail consignment shops we love: thredUp  makes cleaning out your closet easy.  Simply re
