Os­bourne turns into a fash­ion­ista

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - Weekend Life - CARYN ROUSSEAU

Kelly Os­bourne was a re­al­ity star, ac­tress and mu­si­cian be­fore any­one took notice that she had a knack for style.

But lately the 27-year-old daugh­ter of Ozzy Os­bourne, cur­rently with vi­o­let hair af­ter stints of pink, li­lac and grey, has earned the ti­tle of cer­ti­fied fash­ion­ista, dishing the de­signer dirt with Joan Rivers and co-hosts Gi­u­liana Ran­cic and Ge­orge Kot­siopou­los af­ter ma­jor Hol­ly­wood red car­pets on E! Fash­ion Po­lice. She also sat front row with Rivers at the Bad­g­ley Mis­chka show dur­ing the New York Fash­ion Week this past Fe­bru­ary.

“I’m in the process of brand­ing, do­ing my own line. I will not just at­tach my name to some­thing,” Os­bourne said. “I want to be a part of ev­ery as­pect of it. I want to do ev­ery­thing on it and even down to like mak­ing sure I know where the clothes or items are be­ing man­u­fac­tured.”

Now she’s be­ing tapped to kick off fash­ion-fu­elled events too, like this month’s The Mag­nif­i­cent Mile Shop­ping Fes­ti­val along Chicago’s Michi­gan Av­enue. While there Os­bourne shared three things she learned walk­ing the red car­pet that she con­sid­ers top ev­ery­day tips for real women:

Spray tans: “It just gives you that golden glow, a bit of bronze, like you’ve been kissed by the sun,” Os­bourne said. “It makes you look slim­mer and it makes you feel health­ier. I al­ways do that. I hate that I don’t have one now.”

Flat­ter that fig­ure: “Even if you’re a skinny girl, Spanx are a must,” Os­bourne said, namecheck­ing the shap­ing un­der­gar­ments have be­come a red-car­pet sta­ple for women. “No­body wants to see your belly but­ton through your dress.”

Pam­per your feet: “Al­ways pack a pair of bal­let flats in your hand­bag be­cause by the end of the night your feet are killing you. You want to keep go­ing but you can’t. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to go home early be­cause my feet hurt and I haven’t had a pair of shoes to change into. Don’t let your footwear ruin your good time,” she said.

And for those who must know what Os­bourne was wear­ing in Chicago to meet with re­port- ers last week: A long, flow­ing short-sleeved black dress with a rain­bow leaf print by Issa (a British la­bel that Kate, Duchess of Cam­bridge, has helped pop­u­lar­ize) and a ring with a large pur­ple stone and a jew­elled leaf by Chanel.
