SB: Peplum was really big this year, and it shows off the waist. People like colorblocking. Is there something that you specifically like to rock to complement your body?
Phaedra: I think the peplum is an awesome thing. The peplum is every shapely girl’s best friend because it accentuates your waist but then it also gives you that flirty look, so you’re not looking overly s-xy, but at the same time it’s a little flirty, s-xy look. And so I love peplum. I love a nice sheath, because I think that the sheath can go from work to night with the change of earrings and necklace, and DVF does those just excellent. Diane put the whammy on making a dress for women with curves. And even if you don’t have curves, it will accentuate what you have.
SB: Your most beautiful accessory, and I think that a lot of the women on the show feel the same way, is Apollo. Everyone loves Apollo. Do you guys work out together often?
Phaedra: We do. Not as much as he would like to because my husband works out like 3 hours a day, but I can’t quite do that. But he loves to work out, and he’s very intense with his workouts. But I can’t commit that much time. The max is an hour for me normally.
