There's a reason you don't ever see "DWTS" contestants doing the cha-cha in sweats and a cotton tee. Boring duds simply aren't eye-catching in the same way that, say, sequins, red lipstick and a bombshell hairdo are.
If you're ever in need of the front-and-center spotlight, all you have to do to turn the attention your way is channel your inner Hollywood starlet. Smoky eyes, va-va-voom lips and diamonds (real or faux) galore should do the trick nicely. When in doubt, Old Hollywood glamour is the way to score some fashion attention. Just be sure that the venue is appropriate. Church or high tea with your grandma really calls for a more understated appearance, you know?
