The rescue: A stretch cotton shirtdress has enough give for Lewis's figure—it skims over curves rather than encasing them. The bright, solid color has a lengthening effect; the thick belt cinches Lewis at her narrowest. Pucciarello gives Lewis "big, fun, sexy hair"—all that height and volume elongate her round face. The result: She's confident about nailing her next audition. "If I look good, then I feel at ease," she says.
To suit a curvy frame:
- A dress with stretch slims without highlighting imperfections, as separates tend to do.
- A belt worn high on the waist gives the illusion of longer legs.
- Skirts that cover the kneecap emphasize the slenderest part of the leg.
