Hi, I'm celebrity fashion stylist, Tod Hallman. And today, we're going to define the perfect black dress that highlights Megan's petite, curvy figure, and plays on her fun style. Megan is five-two, with some curves. Women are considered petite if they are five-four, or shorter. Celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria and Rachel Bilson have great, petite frames, and we can add Megan to that list. Let's go. So ladies, I think, we have found an amazing black dress for Megan, let's take a look. I chose this particular dress for Megan, because with her petite frame, I wanted to find something that's going to make her look longer and leaner. This is the perfect length for her, it's above the knee, about 36 inches, classic party dress, it's strap-less. So, that also helps make her look longer, because you see more skin. Cute, little closed toe shoe, with the bow on the back of the shoe. And then, we went simple jewels, because you want to be the star when you're wearing a dress as beautiful. So remember, don't over-accessorize; sometimes less is more. So ladies, if you're petite like Megan, remember, look for a black dress silhouette, that's going to make you look long and lean. Remember, think of an above the knee cut. Again, a longer leg, and if you can wear strap-less like Megan, go for it. I think it completely opens her up. Trendshaping is about knowing your body, and understanding trends to get a style tailored just for you. Until next time, I'm celebrity fashion stylist, Tod Hallman.
