What makes women feel their sexiest?
High heels, lipstick and a brand new thong make women feel hot to trot, says study.
Feeling sexy? Women typically do thanks to certain products, says a recent study, even if it’s not directly visible to others.
Digital Hub says among the top three things that make a woman feel her hottest are smooth legs, wearing new underwear and getting complimented on her looks, according to a study conducted by Boux Avenue.
Black high heels, red lipstick and a cleavage-enhancing bra also topped the list, says the research. In fact, 80 percent of interviewees said high heels make them feel instantly sexy (and slightly slimmer, mind you, which adds to the feeling of instant sexiness).

It may seem obvious that visible items like high heels and lipstick made the list, but the study gives us another reason to stock up on thongs. “High heels and red lipstick predictable have an effect on how we look, feel and act, but people tend to underestimate the power that new underwear can have on a woman, despite the fact that few people will actually see it,” says spokesperson Lisa Bond. “It’s amazing that the most subtle changes can transform a woman into feeling sexy.”

Although the study found that one in twenty women make an effort to feel sexy every single day, there’s still a significant percentage out there that forgo the fancy heels--19 percent say they simply never bother putting in the effort to feel sexy. That sounds like a lot less work!

When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
