The Talk's award-winning co-host puts a fresh new slant on wearing head-to-toe white, and comes out dazzling.
By Liana Schaffner
Painters call the white areas of the canvas "the negative space." Designers, on the other hand, create entire works of art out of just the color white—and the effect is striking. A shining example of this is
Sheryl Underwood, who beamed in a one-shoulder ivory jumpsuit by Ralph Lauren as co-host of the Daytime Emmy Awards.
In a sari-like silhouette that gracefully drapes across her curves but doesn't drown out her figure,
The Talk co-host proves you don't have to be a size 0 to look stunning in all white. The absence of any frilly details keeps the look sophisticated, while the flash of a bare arm tastefully shows off some skin. A wide rose-gold bangle, shimmery tassel earrings, and sequined shoes add just enough gleam to guarantee that no one will call this look vanilla.

The shiny silver buckle and matching slender chain on
