The stars have been shining bright on the red carpet this award season, and with the Oscars taking place tonight, there’s no telling what or who we might see! One thing is for sure, everyone will be looking their absolute best. Celebrity stylist, Katrina Szish who is a red carpet regular at the Golden Globes, Grammy’s, and Oscars joined me recently to dish on her favorite red carpet looks thus far, and the must haves every woman needs to look her red carpet best!
Candace Rose: With award show season upon us (and the Oscars on tonight) what have been some of your favorite red carpet looks thus far?
Katrina Zsish: “Candace, I have to tell you and I bet you agree with me, this has been one of the most amazing award seasons ever when it comes to style. Starting back with the Golden Globes, Taylor Swift has just swept it this season. I loved her first step on the red carpet with this gorgeous Donna Karan Atelier plum gown. It was flawless and glamorous, but not too grown up. I just think she knocked it out of the park the whole season.”
Candace Rose: What can regular women do to look like a celebrity? Is there a quick fix?
Katrina Szish: “A lot of women get really intimidated when they see the celebrities, but there actually are a few things that you can do to get some celebrity advantages without breaking the bank.
Now the number one thing to start out with is a great foundation. That means smooth curves and flawless undergarments (I’ll put it that way). My must have is Donna Karan Evolution hosiery. Now what’s great about this is it comes in six shades from nude to black so it can be ultra sheer but it can also have a bit of a tint to it depending on your outfit. Even better it’s like a day spa for your legs. It actually micro-massages your legs while you’re wearing it.”
Candace Rose: Celebrities tend to have such beautiful smiles and perfect teeth. Is there anything we can do at home to improve our smile?
Katrina Szish: “The dazzling celebrity grin is something that everybody wants. Waterpik recently did a survey and they wanted to know whose got the best celebrity smile? And the winner’s not surprisingly were Jennifer Lopez, Denzel Washington and for best celebrity couples smile? None other than Brangelina. You can get a brighter, whiter smile at home without breaking the bank, my go-to is the Waterpik Complete Care because it’s got a Water Flosser which gets that plaque, which is super important. It also has a sonic toothbrush which gets rid of those stains. And whether you’re a coffee lover or a tea drinker, getting rid of those stains is one of the most important things to do for getting a gleaming celebrity like grin.”
Candace Rose: What are the must haves that every girl should carry in her makeup bag?
Katrina Szish: “The bags keep getting tinier every year, and the question everybody asks me is- ‘What am I going to put in that bag?’ So besides the essentials- lip gloss, powder, mints (because you never know who you’re going to meet). I also always prepare for a fashion emergency in the form of getting a stain on my fabulous outfit, which I’ve been known to do from time to time with portable Shout wipes. They’re disposable, they’re tiny, they can slip in a bag, they can slip in a pocket. They’re safe on all color fast washables. The great things is it’ll get rid of that stain and it’ll be as if it never happened.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share?
Katrina Szish: “What I want everyone to know is they can find more about all of these products on VideoPump.tv, but most important is everybody should remember that looking like a celebrity all comes down to feeling fabulous and being confident.”
