Honing the Waist
"Cute little bare dresses don't look good on me," says stylist agent and painter Angelika Schubert (can you believe she's 60?). This washed taffeta shirtwaist (Diane von Furstenberg, $425) has pockets to fill out narrow hips and balance a broader back; a tie belt creates a more pronounced waist. Roll-up sleeves make upper arms—a sensitive area—a nonissue. The mix of tailoring and shine takes her from office to party.
