5 Steps to a Heather Locklear Makeover

heather locklearI was feeling pretty good today until I saw Heather Locklear. She's close to twice my age and looks so damn good in her little black dress that I can't help but feel sorry for myself. I'm super jealous. Her boobs are better than mine, her legs are better, she just looks flawless, and yeah, I'm hating her for it. Sue me.

The 49-year-old actress turns the big 5-0 in a matter of weeks, so let's celebrate with her by purchasing a LBD of our own. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all.

We'll never be able to compete with Heather, but here are five little black dresses that she's inspired me to find. Oh, and accessories, too!

I'm going to be the bearer of bad news here and say that I don't think many people, myself included, can pull off Heather's spaghetti strap, super tight, boobalicious, sateen dress. That said, here are comparable looks with a little more coverage.

 

lbd

Tadashi Shoji, $290The neckline and ruching is really flattering for both young and not-so-young women. Really like the beaded detail, too.


Ralph Lauren, $124
Generally I prefer to stay away from jersey, but I couldn't resist these clean lines.

lbdAnn Taylor, $100Criss-cross in the front makes a flattering silhouette.

lbdKay Unger, $350Really loving the satin material with a full tulip skirt.

lbdBoss, $475What I like most about this Boss dress is the slender, removable belt and the feminine ruffles.

shoes
Nine West, $34
Well would you look at that -- a reasonably low heel! Hard to come by these days.

shoe
Journee, $40
I love a nude pump with an LBD. Love.

banglesSlip on bangles, $195I prefer to keep accessories simple and chic when wearing a hot LBD. Heather's not wearing any, but classic bangles are never a bad choice.

ringReal butterfly wing ring, $24An interesting cocktail ring like this one I found on Etsy is a great way to add just a little pop of color. Price is right, too!

How would you improvise on Heather's look?
