I have a job interview tomorrow via Skype; it was supposed to be via the company's own internal system, but alas, we have to fall back on Skype. Tips for making me look good?

Video conferencing can be challenging even at a professional set up, I know. What are your tips on two fronts. One, technical stuff, like how to light it, how to look good, etc.. (I'll be using my FiOS connection, so no worries there). And two, how to deal with multiple people (the whole department will be attending) in a Skype video call format...tips for managing the conversation, differences between a "live" interview and a video one, e.g., I'm at home, but should I still wear the BB suit and Hermes tie?
Background: interview is for a specialist research position with an international bank's Rotterdam office; I'm in the US, but I'm a dual national who lived in Holland for many years.
