Power Look vs. Gangster Look

Screen Shot 2013-07-06 at 5.06.49 PM

  The shirt and tie combo on the left is often worn by men  It’s a fashion look, not a power look. Furthermore, when you wear a black shirt with either a light tie or a dark tie, it imparts a gangster look. Fashion looks are not board room or power looks. You may get …

Angelina Jolie: When Black Wears You

AngelinaJolie ElieSaab 2009

  The Elie Saab gown is exquisite, the emerald earrings are divine, and you never looked lovelier – except for one thing. When you wear black, it wears you unless you “defeat” it with lipstick. Black is the darkest color there is, so it can look forbidding. However, light one candle in a dark room, …

Ban Satin Forever

Screen Shot 2013-07-02 at 11.11.24 AM

This should be proof positive that designers should ban satin forever, except in limited amounts. Even beautiful models who are slim and fit, look two sizes larger in a satin gown. These two photos were taken only months apart.

Anne Hathaway – Night & Day

Screen Shot 2013-07-09 at 11.29.03 AM

  The teenager next door is transformed into a Big City sophisticate. Anne looks good in any color hair, as long as the style is sophisticated. She would look even better as a blonde with soft pink-toned makeup, instead of the warm peachy tones that her makeup artist chose. Yes, it “harmonizes” with her hair, …

Prince Charles – Word to the Wise

Screen Shot 2013-07-10 at 10.01.56 AM

  Your Royal Highness, like most gentlemen with light to medium skin, camel is not a flattering colour. First, it is so pale that you literally fade into your coat. Navy blue is a much better colour for you. Look closely, and you’ll see that camel also makes the face splotchy. Better to give up …

Meryl Streep – Divine in “Prada”

Screen Shot 2013-07-02 at 11.00.40 AM

Meryl, you look so beautiful with your “high fashion” look in “The Devil Wears Prada.” Especially your hair. Please bring it back!

Red & Yellow – Ketchup & Mustard

Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 4.12.01 PM

  Some colors go together and some colors simply don’t. For example, tomato red and bright yellow. First of all, these are the two most visible colors in the spectrum, and when you put them together, it’s overkill. Secondly, these colors, when seen together, inevitably make you think of ketchup and mustard, or fast-food restaurants. …

Taylor Swift: Your Brand is Bold

Screen Shot 2013-07-04 at 1.45.45 PM

Taylor, your brand is bold, not bland. Beige is boring and bland; it says Oatmeal Cookie, not innovative, dynamic, entrepreneurial star. All in all, the photo on the left hurts your brand. The hair isn’t you, the shoes are clunky and the dress makes your waistline non-existent and your hair drab. Contrast that with the …

Queen Maxima, Regal in Red

Screen Shot 2013-06-30 at 1.36.55 PM

  Queen Maxima of the Netherlands is definitely looking regal in red. Her red dress looks better with red shoes, though. Beige is fine if you don’t happen to have red shoes. But every woman should own a pair  of red shoes! They’re the icing on the cake. Speaking of icing, the blush peach dress …

Jennifer Lawrence: Good, Better, Best and NO

JenniferLawrenceeBEST

Jennifer Lawrence has a chameleon-like appearance. As she changes hair color, she changes her appearance and persona dramatically. She looks good in the coral and white floral print dress, but they’re not her colors. Her hair is pretty and youthful looking, but it’s the wrong shade of blonde; it’s a harsh yellow. This dress is …
