InStyle designer (and part-time blogger) Jenni Radosevich knows an easy way to give your casual dress a little edge. In this month’s January issue (page 38), she shows you how to add an exposed zipper to your dress in two easy steps.
What You’ll Need:
Sweater dress, zipper trim, and waterproof glue.
1. Measure down the center of the dress’s back to determine length of zipper trim required. Allow for two inches of trim above neck and below hemline.
2. Pin trim to dress to ensure zipper is straight. Working in 2-inch increments, remove pins, apply glue to dress, and attach trim. Hold in place for five seconds to secure. Fold loose ends into dress and attach with glue. Let dry for 24 hours. (Hand-wash only!)
Celebrity dermatologist Jessica Wu swears by certain skin-friendly foods, and if her gorgeous client list—including Katherine Heigl and Maria Bello—is any indication, she’s really on to something. For the porcelain-skinned Heigl, a big Italian food fan, Wu suggested opting for whole-wheat pasta with tomato-based sauce containing skin-boosting green and yellow veggies instead of regular pasta with cream sauce. “Studies have shown that people who eat more green and yellow veggies have fewer wrinkles on their faces, especially crows’ feet,” Wu says. Good to know! For more of Wu’s skin-care advice, check out her book Feed Your Face, in stores February 1st.
