BEING BLUNT: Constantine and Woodall hone in on flabby arms, fat stomachs and other flaws before complimenting what they like. "Your arms are like mine. No definition. I always wear sleeves or three-quarter length," Constantine told a woman she recently critiqued. Then she added, "Your wrists are lovely. You say your stomach is flabby, but I would stab you for your stomach."
THE PRINCESS DI CONNECTION: Constantine dated Princess Margaret's son Viscount Linley and got to know Diana. She wasn't a fan of Diana's style. "She wore such awful shift dresses. I wouldn't say she was someone with innate style."
CLOTHES MAKE THE WOMAN: One woman they made over soon left her boyfriend; another left a bad job. "We know if you feel you look great before you go to a party, you will enjoy the party better," Woodall says. "If you feel sexy, then you'll have better sex with your husband."
WHY SHORTS SHOULD STAY AT THE GYM: Along with too-tight T-shirts over fat stomachs and cable-knit sweaters covering large breasts, shorts are a no-no for all women. "They are such a horrible item of clothing," Constantine says. "A lot of women [in the United States] are tented or in shorts, which we feel are so unfeminine."
PREGNANCY MAKES THEM SEXIER: Woodall's first child is due in November, while Constantine expects her third this month. "I always had big boobs and a flabby stomach, so I'm not doing anything differently," says Constantine. "Trinny is having a tougher time. She has to reappraise the way she dresses." Their advice for pregnant women? "Elle Macpherson makes the best nursing bra," Constantine says. "I swear by them."
