Hi, I'm celebrity stylist Tod Hallman. Today, we are going to find a little black dress to place on Diane's bottom curvy figure and her youthful style. She has a defined waist, her hips are broader than her shoulders and bust. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and Shakira are all considered to have great bottom-curvy figures. And we can add Diane to that list. You ready to go shopping? Yeah. Let's do it. So ladies, I'm excited. I think we've found the perfect little black dress for Diane. Let's take a look. So, ladies, I chose this particular dress for Diane because she's young and I wanted something that was going to be fun and playful. The skirt is a fuller skirt. It's tulle, but it has a beautiful belt, so it pulls her in at the waist, which I think actually accents her curves. Strapless with a ribbon detail, it's fun and it's a great party look for her. Fun bracelet, not too much jewelry, again. Because you want to be the star. And then a fun black shoe, but a print shoe. So, again it's not a solid blunt look at the bottom of the leg. Again, playful and young. Yeah. I think Diane looks beautiful. So, ladies, keep in mind that if you do have a bottom curvy shape, like Diane, look for a dress that's going to pull you in at the waist. Keep the length in mind, because if you are bottom curvy you don't want to go overly short. You don't want to go too tight because it's not going to be flattering. A nice fuller silhouette, you're just going to be happier in and you'll look beautiful. Trendshaping is about knowing your body and understanding the trends to get a style tailored just for you. Until next time, I'm celebrity fashion stylist, Tod Hallman.
