Next time you try on a dress and wonder, “Is this too sexy? Or is it just sexy enough...?” know that you can be rocking a frumpy sweater and still have the potential to exude sex appeal. But if you’d like a little more elaboration, Olivier Rousteing does a pretty good job. He told us back in 2012:

“I actually think the face is the sexiest part of a woman’s body, because I think the ‘sexy’ is more in the emotion…when you see the [Balmain] show, they have their hair really simple, the makeup really simple, and they can wear what they want. They can wear a white T-shirt or the dress, but if there is emotion in the eyes and promise, and the flow in the hair, for me it’s really important. I think we have the most beautiful girls in the world in our shows, and I would never try to hide their beauty. I think they have beautiful hair, they have beautiful eyes, the lips—I like the individuality completely. I’m very attracted to that look of no makeup.”

Drake says it pretty well too: “ Sweatpants, hair tied, chillin’ with no makeup on. That’s when you’re the prettiest. I hope that you don’t take it wrong.” Praise hands emoji, for sure.
