Is Hugh Jackman the Sexiest Man?

Three Photos of Hugh Jackman

You probably recognize Hugh Jackman, once voted “The Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine. The man on the right hardly looks sexy, or even attractive.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Octavia Spencer both looked spectacular in white. Gwyneth’s understated ensemble from Tom Ford was just perfect for her. It’s got the look of Old Money. Octavia’s gown was both spectacular and classy. These women prove that everyone can wear white if you get the makeup right! Viola Davis and Glen Close both …

Oscar Night – Emma Stone makes them pale by comparison


Last night at the Oscars, as expected, I saw many celebrities and stars wearing pale “blush” colors, and they aren’t doing themselves any favors. When you have pale skin, you make yourself look even paler. And when you forgo lipstick for the so-called “natural” look of today, you even begin to look sickly. Too many …

Best & Worst Fashion at Grammys


Katy Perry, what were you thinking? This dress makes you look matronly. You need to fire your stylist. I don’t mind blue hair, but that hairstyle is also unflattering – it makes your neck look too muscular. Throw that gown away! Rhiianna, this is your best look yet. Keep that sexy blonde hair.

Now That’s a Makeover


Lady Gaga has transformed herself from a frumpy street urchin (left) to a high-fashion pinup. It’s acknowledged that she’s had a nose job (see before and after photos below), but it’s likely that she’s also had a little liposuction at the jawline. My favorite photo of her is the center photo, because she looks so …

Katie Couric- white and grey

Not bad, Katie. White always makes grey look very professional; makes you imagine the person is an attorney and headed for court.

Katie Couric- Old Rose for Little Old Ladies

No, no, no, no Katie. This dreary Old Rose color is for little old ladies, not you! Please note that grey is born negative (old and grey, sad and grey, tired and grey – not to mention a grey lie or area) and needs a positive color to save it. Old Rose isn’t one of …

Katie Couric- Entry Level or Media Professional?

Not bad, Katie, but it still looks a little like an entry-level employee somehow.
