Look Lust: Exclusive Q&A with Extra TV Host Adrianna Costa
Spotted! Adrianna Costa at the “Just Fab Kimora Lee” event looking fabulous in a bebe cocktail dress. That’s not all…follow the Extra TV host on Twitter for frequent snaps of her wearing bebe and always looking so gorg. But first, we sat down with her to get the dish on everything from what she loves most about bebe to what she does to keep so stylishly fit. Extra, extra! Read all about it!
STYLUST: What do you love most about bebe?
ADRIANNA: I’m obsessed with bebe because the pieces always fit right, look runway-ready, and don’t break the bank. That’s most important in my book because I need to look different everyday for my job on TV, but don’t want to overspend.
STYLUST: What fall trends are you obsessing over most right now?
ADRIANNA: Now that fall is here, I love the layered look! Like a pair of skinny jeans with a tight tank under a delicious sweater and a cropped leather jacket to complete it. I’m also addicted to playing with different colors, patterns and textures to jazz up any style. Of course, I can’t leave the house without a fabulous shoulder bag and a pair of bebe’s insanely hot platform booties.
STYLUST: You looked stunning at the “Just Fab Kimora Lee” event. What’s your key to styling a complete look, whether you’re on set or heading to an event?
ADRIANNA: In my opinion, it’s all about picking a theme before putting together your look. Sometimes I like channeling ’60s or ’70s-inspired fashion and opt for a great pair of bell-bottoms, a cropped top and wedges. Other times it’s all about simplicity. For example, at the “Just Fab Kimora” event, I wanted something fitted (which I love these days) sexy, flirty and comfortable more than anything. That gorgeous cream-colored mini bebe frock embodied all those things. Forget the age-old rule about not wearing white after Labor day! Fall and even winter-white is so super sexy and often unexpected. You’ll stand out in a crowd.
STYLUST: What are some fun things you do to stay fit?
ADRIANNA: One word: PILATES!!! I’m absolutely obsessed! It’s so wonderful to find a workout routine that works for your body, and you actually look forward to. Pilates Plus has done that for me. With my schedule, it’s hard to get in there, but at the very least, I shoot for 2 lessons a week coupled with regular cardio. Even just a speed-walk will do the trick. Also, it’s all about eating right. Splurges are okay, but I stay on a pretty conservative diet eating every two to three hours…high protein, good carbs, and fruit/veggies. I don’t eat any meat—only fish—so I focus on getting protein from beans, yogurt and soy.
STYLUST: Who is your favorite style icon of all time?
ADRIANNA: Kate Hudson! She is effortless, gorgeous, and a total throwback. The girl can wear anything and make a statement. From her glitzy red-carpet gowns to the everyday T-shirts and jeans, she rocks it better than anyone else. Just think, Kate Hudson’s wardrobe in “Almost Famous”…yup, that pretty much sums up perfection for me!
