"This year I'm warming up to bright color."
"I have two lives, and two wardrobes," says actress-comedian Alexandra Wentworth, 43. For on-air appearances—as a Hollywood shrink on Head Case, an unscripted comedy on Starz, and as a regular contributor on Oprah Fridays Live—she needs "color that pops," like bright blue or emerald. At home with husband George Stephanopoulos, the ABC News correspondent, and their two children, she says, "I gravitate toward black and steel gray. I don't like to be showy." Wentworth's pink-loving, princess-minded daughters would like her to brighten up. "Last New Year's, my 6-year-old made me buy fuchsia suede pumps for a party, and I never got so many compliments in my life." Vivid shoes, like the yellow satin sandals here (Christian Louboutin), are a good way to start adding color, she says—"then work your way up." Says Wentworth of these orange pants (J.Crew, $98) and purple silk moire taffeta tie-neck blouse (L'Wren Scott, $1,300): "It's fun and chic. I'd never have thought of putting these two colors together, so I'm learning!"
