Ah, now that the Golden Globes have ended Poliwood “Wonk Stars” can turn their complete attention to our city’s mah-jor style event—Inauguration. Since the beginning of the Obama Era we’ve had a lot to celebrate, and I’m not just talking about our first African American First Family.  With the arrival of the Obama’s we’ve witnessed DC shed its Fifty Shades of Grey and do the once unthinkable—go sleeveless. Let’s face it before the Obama’s, DC was known as Hollywood for ugly, smart people, ouch.

Now, we are Poliwood—Hollywood’s chic, smart, sister!

With this new awareness and appreciation for style comes new responsibility, not only do DC Politicos need to show up at a black tie events, but now their fashion sense needs to show out as well.  So long stodgy black mother-of-the-bride style “dress suits” and hello Badgley Mischka glamour. In Poliwood we know that the Polinista rule reigns supreme, we can be fashionably political.

Like any great artist knows before you can paint you need to secure your foundation—the same is true for the red carpet. So, here are some quick tips to getting Inaugural Ball ready:

Polinista Tip 1. Just Say No: Alcohol is a sure fire way to dry out your skin. You don’t want to bump into the Obama’s looking like rattlesnake. Until the big ball substitute booze for some delightful and skin hydrating H20.

Polinista Tip 2. Bi-Partisan Biceps: If there is nothing else the two parties can agree on it’s that Michelle Obama’s arms are ah-maze balls! If you’re going strapless or rocking the one shoulder you still have times to get your arms in shape. Doing a daily Yoga/Pilates or kettle-bell routine over the next week is all you need to look armed and fabulous or for the very ambitious check out celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson’s intense arm workout.

Polinista Tip 3. O2 Cleanse: There is not a lot we swear by, but the O2 4 days cleanse is definitely one of them. Need a little insurance on looking your best this weekend? This antioxidant rich cleanse will have you 2-5lbs lighter, just in time to slip into your Polinista’s best. Trust us…it works!

These tips are tried and true—we would never steer our Polinistas wrong. Make sure to save the date for our SCANDALous red carpet affair!
