Celebrity Style Feb. 15, 2011 AT 2:36PM

Don't expect to see Kelly Killoren Bensimon wearing some fussy, fashionista-approved outfit during New York Fashion Week.

The Real Housewives of New York star, 42, tells UsMagazine.com "I don't want to dress for women. I like to dress for dudes -- smoking hot!"

So where does the mother of two, jewelry designer and former model shop for the perfect "guy hot" looks before attending a slew of fashion week shows, events and parties? Her own closet, for starters.

In this exclusive video, the entertaining star reveals her secret for enhancing your assets (hint: smaller equals bigger), how to transition from winter to spring and why your shoes shouldn't be practical. And her LOL (but useful!) style advice doesn't end there.

Then, Bensimon checks out the new Ann Taylor concept store in the Flatiron district of NYC, where she whips up three hot ensembles, demonstrates how to turn a headband into a bracelet and declares, "I'm probably going to be one of the best dressed people at fashion week."

And definitely don't miss the star stop by the alice + olivia store to pick out something to wear to the label's Fall/Winter 2011 presentation. Bensimon hunts for a "Corona dress" that she can "play pool in" and jokes with designer Stacey Bendet about snagging a Valentine's Day date.
