When you think of Diana Ross, two words come to mind: glamour and wigs. Most of the time, she was full-on glamour with sparkles, sequins, ruffles, bright colors, and furs—everything that is the epitome of glamour.

There are only two strategies for how to look thinner: disguise and distract. It is similar to the magicians that grace the stages of Las Vegas casinos everyday.  They are masters of disguise when they need to create a false bottom on a box for sawing someone in half. The magician is also a creator of distractions when they use a fog machine or a spotlight to distract you from their assistant coming out from behind a curtain. You too can become a master of illusion to make your body appear thinner and you don’t even need elaborate hand gestures or a cape.
