GAL APPROVED Weekend! WNTW Final Season, Perfect Summer Skin & Cool Sweet Tea!By DIVAGALS | August 9, 2013 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
WATCH. It’s been a decade of Stacy London and Clinton Kelly turning frumpy and foul frocks into fabulous fashion. Tonight, What Not To Wear begins its final season, and the dynamic makeover duo has saved some of the worst for last! TV DivaGal has faithfully watched WNTW since its inception and has learned some major tricks to looking your best. Here are my top three tips from my fave fashion gurus:
1. Fit clothes to the widest part of your body and then get thee to a tailor so the rest can be taken in. You’ll make a $50 shirt look priceless once it’s tailored to YOUR shape.
2. Get a good bra. Once “the girls” are properly positioned, everything else falls into place.
3. Don’t toss out your personal style, elevate it. Stacy and Clinton always tried to stay true to the tastes of their makeover subject (well, if they had any!), and kept it quirky or colorful or sexy ΓÇô they just added some much needed polish!
Tonight, a trio of best friends get the Stacy and Clinton treatment, the first time there’s been a makeover trifecta! What Not To Wear, the finale season, premieres Friday, Aug. 9 at 10 p.m. on TLC.
SEE. If you enjoyed District 9, Elysium, the new sci-fi blockbuster, is sure to please! Starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, how can it miss with the acclaimed actress rocking a glossy bob, and Matt with his shirt off? We’re seeing it this morning, fun fun! Currently playing nationwide.
BUY. If you missed What Maise Knew, starring Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard and Onata Aprile, mark your calendar to get it new on video on August 13. It’s a contemporary re-imagining of Henry JamesΓÇÖ novel of the same name, the story of a captivating little girl’s struggle for grace in the midst of her parents’ bitter custody battle. Read our original review.
PROTECT. Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 followed by a few dabs of┬á L’Oreal True Match foundation has been our secret for making our skin look radiant ΓÇô and keeping it protected all summer long.
HYDRATE. Stay cool during these dog days of summer. Make your own herbal ice tea with fresh squeezed limes and sweetened with Nectresse, and save money on pricey bottled options by filling up a favorite flask and taking it with you. Our recipe? We use Pomegranate-flavored green tea. In a pitcher make 6 cups of your favorite tea (6 oz. of hot water per tea bag). Add fresh squeezed limes. Sweeten with Nectresse to taste and chill over night. Yum!
