How to Dress Like a Fashion Designer

With red carpet season in full swing, fashion followers everywhere are watching to see who's wearing what and to check out the next big trend in fashion. Of course what you see on the runway would never work for most mere mortals. So what's a gal to do if she wants to be at the height of style? Most people wonder the same thing. It turns out, it's much easier than you think.

Tina Fey of 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, in her book Bossypants shared an amazing insight. If you want to look stylish, don't wear what the fashion designers put on the runway. Wear what they actually wear.  Twice a year, the hottest designers deck out models in bizarre and outlandish creations that would get strange looks if worn anywhere but a runway. But those same designers dress every day in casual clothes, activewear, and even jeans and t-shirts every day -- even when they're showing their sometimes outlandish creations on the runway. 

It turns out that fashion designers usually opt for neutral colors, slim, figure-flattering, well-tailored clothes, and more often than not, they resort to the little black dress when they can't think of what to wear. (At least the women do.) As for accessories and makeup (again, for the female designers), they actually go for a minimal, basic, unfussy look.

-paint your nails and toes a simple color. like pink , purple , blue , silver etc  -start wearing studded earrings and like simple necklaces. like a heart necklace or a star necklace. then work your way up to the hoops and stuff  -make up:  start off with the basics, like light color eye shadow (the browns, white, pinks, etc) not too bold colors on eyeshadow. mascara and liquid eye liner if you'd like. Youtube tutorials will help you  -hair:  make it curly. put rollers in your hair at night and add a little clip on ribbon or bow. just wear your hair down more often make it wavy. there are tips on youtube on how to make it wavy and curly.

First off, I fail to see how makeup is girly. But, I mean, little things...what you wear, how you wear it, a purse, lip stuff and eye stuff maybe?
