Osbourne on fashion

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

But the 27-year-old daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, currently with violet hair after stints of pink, lilac and gray, is now being tapped to kick off fashion-fueled events, too, such as 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, name-checking 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 reporters: A long, flowing short-sleeved black dress with a rainbow leaf print by Issa (a British label that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has helped popularize) and a ring with a large purple stone and a jeweled leaf by Chanel.
