TV Tip #2

People often ask me what they should wear for a TV interview, screentest, etc. The best piece of advice I can give is this: switch on the TV and look at what other experts and presenters are wearing. What looks good and what doesn't? When there are several expert guests taking part in a studio interview, who stands out and why? On the whole though, keep the following in mind:

1. avoid black (very few people actually look good in black), stripes and dots.
2. cameras really do add 10lbs so choose clothes with neat, streamline cuts
3. think of colours that bring you to life and cuts that flatter your figure. Blocks of colour always look good.
4. avoid bulky fabrics and anything that's too fussy
5. remember that it can get very hot under studio lights so don't wear anything that's going to make you sweat

Don't forget the importance of hair & make-up - and remember to smile!
