The Texan beauty plays up her petite frame with strapless dresses in bold colors and prints, whether on her way to lunch in L.A. (left) or at a gala in Nanette Lepore polka dots. And unlike Gabrielle, she doesn’t have to worry about mowing the lawn in any of them.

She may be a single mom like her character Susan, but in real life, Hatcher is more of a free spirit, moving from well-cut jeans and a beribboned top in London (left) to relaxed elegance in black and white on the red carpet in L.A.

All those triathlons are paying off! Unlike business-suit-friendly mom Lynette, Huffman shows off her toned arms and back in neutral colored dresses (left, in white eyelet at an L.A. event, and in a sexy stunner at the Emmys).

Taking a cue from maneater Edie, Sheridan vamps it up on and off the red carpet, favoring figure-hugging shapes and super-high heels, whether on the streets of New York (left) or an event in London.

Is playing buttoned-up Bree making her blue, or is she just playing up her ivory skin and signature fiery hair? Besides bold hues, the actress sticks to simple, body-skimming shapes (left, at in L.A., and promoting her show in New York).
