Kelly Bensimon has just released her third book, I Can Make You Hot!: The Supermodel Diet, and we had a chance to ask her our burning questions. Hello, we need to know how to fit in a bikini asap. She now has her fav products to make you “hot” on OpenSky, along with a copy of her signed book. Plus, read on for her fav shoe brands…enjoy! (oh, and side note, we saw her at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week last season looking so hot in a bright-hued J.Crew jumpsuit – yep she’s just as hot in person!)
I Heart Heels: What do you do for both exercise and diet to stay in such great shape?
Kelly Bensimon: I exercise 20 minutes a day and eat well six days a week.
IHH: What are a couple of ways we can all instantly look slimmer in our clothes?
KB: Monochromatic is an easy way to look slim and chic. Balance your look: either show cleavage or show legs. Tight pants show off curves, while baggy makes you look bigger.
IHH: What type of swimsuit is going to flatter most shapes?
KB: I like Melissa Odabash one pieces. They’re slimming and sophisticated. I like everyone in a bikini, but if you’re too shy, a simple one-piece in a plain color is hot.
IHH: Do you think heels play a role in making us all look “hot”? If so, where do you personally shoe shop?
KB: I say high or low; wear high if you want to look like a supermodel, and low if you want to look like a socialite. Steve Madden, Vince Camuto, Sam Edelman and Jessica Simpson are great price points for great styles.
IHH: Do you really buy a size smaller in jeans?
KB: Yes; squeeze it in!
IHH: What’s your favorite spicy dish you prepare at home?
KB: Spicy boosts your metabolism, and I love to make chicken and add spicy red-crushed pepper to it.
IHH: What date will your book and favorite products be listed on OpenSky and what can we expect to find?
KB: My book is available now on Opensky, and all of my hot items are always available.
IHH: What’s your own favorite bit of info from your book we should all look for when we buy it?
KB: I love the hair and makeup tips. If you have great hair and eyes like Bambi, you can wear whatever you want. I really love Beauty for Real Red Lips and Nail Polish – the best colors to make you hot.
