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, …

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 …

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) …

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 …
