Fabulous is the new cool, with a touch of glam. So in honor of Kimora's new show "Life in the Fab Lane" (yes, we love it), we're setting out some of the guidelines, courtesy of the grand dame of all things over-the-top. Tune in to her show on Sundays 8/7c on the Style Network.Fabulosity...
Fabulosity (n): 1: a state of everything that is fabulous 2: a quality ascribed to that which expresses glamour, style, charisma, power, and heart.
HOW TO BE THE MOST FABULOUS IN THE ROOM:
- Carry an extra-large bag in cherry, emerald or orange -- not beige, not camel and definitely not
- Wear a dramatic coat that almost demands someone help you put it on and take it off.
- Laugh a lot. It makes everybody wonder if it's more fun to be at your party.
- Turn up the music in every room you enter.
- Acal juice. Like pomegranate juice, but even better
- Dark green vegetables like spinach, kale, collard greens, watercress. I fight them sometimes, but really, let's not be babies here. We need this stuff!
- Pre-made smoothies. Those $3 ones you buy at the supermarket
- Dark chocolate. Good for your heart -- in moderation
- Green tea. I have my chef make me pitchers of iced green tea.
- Nude thongs for white and pale-colored skirts and pants
- Nipple petals for wearing under sheer tops
- Band-Aids for protection from rhinestone-covered sandals
- Double-stick tape for fastening down revealing tops
- Deodorant (the kind that doesn't leave white powder on your clothes)
- Baby Phat Goddess fragrance
- Super-shiny lip gloss
KIMORA'S FASHION DON'TS:
- Baggy, sloppy T-shirts
- Stripper tops that leave your belly hanging out
- Broomstick skirts — hippie-girl skirts
- Anything see-through. That is too much.
- Distressed anything — no distressed jeans, leathers or torn punk-rock T-shirts
- Anything with a sports team logo
- Conservative pantsuits. My pantsuits are coral-pink Versace corduroy — and sexy as hell.
- Wide-brimmed sun hats, trilbies and top hats. No, no no!
