Stress, Sexuality & Romance
Tina Fey, queen of television comedy turned movie star, recounts lessons learned in a lifetime of fashion missteps.
When Mario Testino shot Fey for the cover of Vogue in December, he told her, "You look like Stephanie Seeeee-mour." Her favorite moment: "At one point I was posing for him, and he was talking from behind the camera and he was like, 'You have to fliiiirt, darleeeng. You have to bee-leeve you are wuuuurthy to be on the cover.' And then at one point he said very quietly, 'Lift your chin, darling. You are not eighteen.' I was like, 'You probably say that to all the 23-year-olds.' "
Of the cleavage-baring Prada dress on the cover? "I am a fan of the deep V. These are the things I learned from my friends who are cutter/drapers: I have an hourglass figure; I do have a waist, but I have full hips and I have decent shoulders. So that V is good for me. I have learned enough that I can go to a rack and say, 'That's not going to work. That's going to work.' So at awards shows, I wear a deep V. Because it makes the triangles go the right way. Not good on me? Spaghetti straps. It looks like when you tie up a roast before you put it in the oven."
