The new issue of Us Weekly has a "25 PAGE FASHION BONUS!" (their punctuation, not ours). We knew we'd be in for a night of tossing and turning if we didn't know who the "HOT HOLLYWOOD STYLE WINNERS" were, so we bought the issue and flipped through. The Celebrity Designer of the Year is — surprise! — Lauren Conrad, and the Star Design (whatever that is) winners are Kimora Lee Simmons and Sean "Diddy" Combs. We thought it couldn't get any better, but we kept flipping and came upon Nicky Hilton, Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante, Brody Jenner, and Heidi Montag sporting her inseamless shorts. In need of the fashion equivalent of a shower, we took a crack at the mag's Q&A with Heidi Klum, their Style Icon of the Year, wherein we noticed this nugget:
What's the most important rule for dressing up?
Not to do too many things. Don't go hoochie-mama: big hair, red lips, dark eye shadow, lots of lashes, short skirt, boobs out, high heels. Too much! Pick one thing. If you have great legs, wear something super-short with a great shoe and keep your boobs tucked in.
Now didn't Klum's Oscar-party outfit (pictured above) include a short skirt, boobs out, high heels, and lots of lashes? The woman looks hot, but there's something to be said for practicing what one preaches.
