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, …

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, …

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) …

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, …

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 …
