At this "Girls Night Out," Clinton discussed six of the fall's hottest trends, while also answering the audience's style questions and charming us with his snarky funny, but still very sweet, personality.

While he provided familiar advice (if you are a What Not to Wear fan), he was quick to point out that people should wear what makes them happy. If you love flaunting your cleavage, flaunt away. Love showing off those legs, go for it! The most important part is being happy with your look and who you are as a person!
One of the things that impressed me the most about Clinton was his awesome body positive stance. He discussed how the images of "perfection" we see in the media are constructed. Having met many celebrities first-hand, he re-iterated that NOBODY looks the way they are portrayed in the media. He discouraged the audience from comparing themselves to these false images.
He also encouraged people in the audience to forgive people who have harmed their self-esteem through criticism or bullying but to release any negative words they had been fed. He admonished parents not to criticize their children's bodies, reminding them that even "helpful" comments can lead to lifelong injury.
Through "What Not to Wear" and other venues, Clinton has worked to help people feel fabulous through fashion. I was sad to see this show come to an end.
