The inside counts, but the outside packaging can make all the difference between a date or a job and a pass over. Hollywood clothing designer and stylist Bradley Bayou, who has dressed Oprah, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Queen Latifah and Eva Longoria, believes that every woman can look sexy in the right clothes. The Science of Sexy goes beyond the typical pear, apple, hourglass, rectangle body advice, creating 48 sub-types based on height and weight, as well as silhouette shape. Bayou then sends readers to different color-coded fitting rooms where they find illustrated outfits and detailed information on their blessings (every body has 'em), the new you looks and what not to wear ( Really. I mean it ), covering casual, work and formal occasions. Sexy is balanced, well-fitting clothes that train a spotlight on those blessings, according to Bayou, and his guide helps retrain a woman's eye to recognize them.
