There are Suits, and There are Suits

Screen Shot 2013-08-03 at 1.51.14 PM

In Paul Fussell’s book “UNIFORMS;  Why You Are What You Wear” he points out that a power suit has the same power as the military uniform of a top ranking Admiral or General. Warning:  Power Dressing in the US Senate and elsewhere has deteriorated dramatically since Fussell published his book! My own former Senator John Warner was what he …

Timeless Fashion

CharlotteR74

From May 2013 Vogue Magazine Charlotte Rampling, 1974, in a timeless Yves St. Laurent ensemble. Some things are timeless, and this is one of them. Everything says “Paris” with hints of Chanel, whom St. Laurent admired. In particular the long necklaces and the wonderful white flower brooch. St. Laurent is famous for his impeccable tailoring, …

Great Outfit – except for

Screen Shot 2013-07-26 at 9.22.32 AM

  Wow! what a fabulous jacket. The color is both powerful and flattering to most women; and the style is classy and elegant. The blue and white color scheme couldn’t be better for summer. Love the white “statement” necklace, too! There are two things out of sync, however. First, the shirttail hanging out. Straight lines …

Gwyneth Paltrow – Give Up Satin

GwynP(4)

  Wow! Look at the popularity of Gwyneth’s gunmetal grey satin gown. Obviously, everyone loves Gwyneth, and as a result, we’re all forgiving of an unflattering garment. Look closely, and you’ll see – as usual – that satin seems to make “lumps and bumps” appear out of nowhere. Even the super svelte Gwyneth looks a …

Emma Stone – Barbie Pink lipstick

EmmaStoneBarbie

  It’s a myth that redheads, fair-skinned blondes and strawberry blondes cannot wear black. Emma Stone is a natural beauty, and she’s usually stylishly dressed. Her black gown is fabulous, and she looks good in it – but not GREAT! The problem is her lipstick. She looks lovely in pink and orchid shades of lipstick, …

Smoky Eyes and Lipstick Color

KarlieEmmaW

Smoky Eyes Need Lipstick Makeup artists, take note: that old wives tale that says if you have dark eyes, you must have pale lips, and vice versa. Wrong. As you can see, dark eyes need the balance of red or fuchsia lips to keep them from looking scary and a bit too Goth. Emma Watson …

Jennifer Aniston – Good, Better Best

Screen Shot 2013-07-18 at 4.32.34 PM

  It’s hard to make Jennifer Aniston look bad. She has a natural beauty. But when it comes to hair  she’s definitely not looking her best with curls. Straight shiny hair is best for Jennifer. However, a  blunt cut is severe, because of the hard straight line it makes at the jaw line, so it …

Harmony of Makeup Colors

Screen Shot 2013-07-18 at 1.45.14 PM

  There’s nothing wrong with wearing pink lipstick with red nails, as long as the red nail polish color is a cool red. Pink is a derivative of red, so it’s all in the family. Unfortunately this red polish is a warm red. It harmonizes with the orange blusher, but not the cool pink lipstick. …

Kim Kardashian – Color Tip

KimK

REMINDER:  There are two colors that should never be worn together:  red and yellow. It elicits a fast food image and isn’t terribly classy. The best color lipstick to wear when wearing yellow garments is a red violet. The blue undertones of the red-violet color harmonize with the yellow. Only red-violet lipstick (or orchid tones) …
