When it comes to styling petite bodies, the clothing options can seem limited. Two women wrote to us asking for fashion help and we couldn't wait to show them how to style their petite bodies with confidence! Thanks to the assistance of Style Expert Mana Mansour, Hair Expert Loribelle Urrutia and Makeup Artist Veronica Chu, we gave Joyce and Samantha complete makeovers that flatter their body types!

Joyce has a difficult time finding dresses that fit her 5 ft. 1 frame well. She often finds clothes overpowering rather than enhancing. Her ultimate goal was to find a flattering jumpsuit and look a bit taller without having to wear super high stilettos.

At the same height, Samantha is both petite and slim. She can't seem to find clothes that fit her proportions other than stretchy jeans and t-shirts. She wanted a jaw-dropping date night look that's both playful and trendy!
