Not only has celebrity stylist Kithe Brewster worked with stars like Beyonce and Julianne Moore, but the Everyday Health blogger recently lost more than 100 pounds himself -- and is sharing how you can accentuate the positive this New Year's Eve, whatever your shape.

Try a fit-and-flare silhouette! "I love this sparkly Kevan Hall number on Jordin Sparks -- it hugs and flows in all the right places," celebrity stylist Kithe Brewster says of the cut that's fitted in the bust and forgiving in the hips. "And she scores extra points for keeping her accessories low-key."
Tip! Wearing a sheer "illusion" neckline like Jordin? Pull your hair up to show it off.

Try sheer sleeves! Don't fuss with a wrap all night or ruin your look with a mismatched cardigan. "Sheer sleeves are the solution for women who don't want to totally bare their arms," says Brewster of this style, worn by Minka Kelly. "They're sexy, soft and don't look like an afterthought."
Tip! Want a party dress you'll wear all yearound, even in summer? Sheer white or cream is a savvy purchase.

Try stretch sequins! "This Alice + Olivia dress, worn by Eva Longoria, looks like liquid gold!" exclaims Brewster. "The gleaming stretch fabric draws attention to every part of your body, making it the perfect choice for anyone who wants to amp up their curves."

Try 3D ruffles! "Voluminous ruffles add dimension to a petite frame, so you really stand out," says Brewster. "Look how this ruffled blush dress enhances Rachel Bilson's beauty." Want to score something similar for yourself? Tibi, Milly, Notte by Marchesa and Forever 21 all have similar styles in stores now.














If You Want to Lengthen Your Legs...If You Want to Lengthen Your Legs...5) If You Want to Lengthen Your Legs...
Try sparkly shorts! Sure, there's a dress out there for every figure, but sometimes a girl just wants to... stand out from the crowd. "Selena Gomez's sparkly shorts are a great alternative for New Year's Eve, one many women will be trying." Want a bit more coverage? "A tuxedo or dinner jacket makes a great addition to this look," recommends Brewster.
Wow! You can buy the exact shorts Selena's wearing for $22.80 at Forever21.com.












If You Have Wide Shoulders..If You Have Wide Shoulders..6) If You Have Wide Shoulders...
Try a babydoll dress! "This dress works beautifully on Kelly Bensimon because it combines concealed shoulders with a short hemline that spotlights her great legs. I also approve of her choice of a red shoe -- it's like the period at the end of a beautiful sentence!"















If You Want to Look Sexy but Refined...If You Want to Look Sexy but Refined...7) If You Want to Look Sexy but Refined...
Try cutouts! "Covered arms with cutouts are an excellent way to create just enough sex appeal, especially when you're just over 50 like Christie Brinkley. She looks amazing!"

Try a lace mini! There's something so delicate and vintage-looking about Charlize Theron's lacy Christian Dior dress, says Brewster. "It's a great look for many body types, but especially successful on women over 5'9", since the lace softens a tall frame and the wide neckline balances your height."















If You Want to Play Up Your Sex Appeal...If You Want to Play Up Your Sex Appeal...9) If You Want to Play Up Your Sex Appeal...
Try a shift! "Elizabeth Hurley's famous figure looks amazing and utterly in proportion in this classic, structured silhouette," says Brewster. To make sure your shift says "evening" instead of "office," look for a metallic finish or sparkly trim.















If You Want to Flaunt Your Legs with Class...If You Want to Flaunt Your Legs with Class...10) If You Want to Flaunt Your Legs with Class...
Try a blousy minidress! "Kate Beckinsale has one of the best pairs of legs in the business so this short length is a no-brainer." What keeps it all in proportion? A blousier, less revealing top.
Fun fact! When Kate's Tadashi Shoji dress hit the runway, the hemline was considerably longer, but the actress had it hiked up to flaunt her gorgeous gams.
