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 …

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. …

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 …

Brad Pitt – Ditch the Grey

BradPittGREY

  I’ve never seen a film star who looks really great in grey, whether it’s a grey pin-striped suit or a casual ensemble like that which Brad Pitt wears. First of all, grey is associated with Old & Grey, Sad & Grey, Tired & Grey. We talk about a Grey Area and a Grey Lie, …

Nicole Kidman: Looking Awesome as Redhead

NicoleKidmnJimmyChoo

  OMG, Nicole you look awesome in this Jimmy Choo ad. Now that’s the way to go when you have red hair. Your pink-toned makeup lets your face pop. Most makeup artists put redheads in “matching” orange makeup. Of course, when they do, black suddenly looks harsh. Orange lipstick and blusher might “go” with red …

A Study in Line

ElizRodriguez

This beautiful actress has done everything wrong with “line” that is possible. First, the neckline makes it appear as if her bust line is sagging and too low. It also makes her bosom look nearly flat. She is definitely longer in the torso than in the legs, and the neckline of her dress exaggerates this. …

Hillary Clinton – Short & Chic

Hillary

Hillary, you’re looking glamorous with this slightly-bouffant hairdo. Great color, great style. Why not bring it back? Fuller hairstyles are ¬†gaining popularity now, and for good reason: ¬†they are flattering. Cool, pink-toned foundation will smooth those lines, make you look younger and have greater overall harmony! Yellow-toned foundations and peachy blushers don’t go with your …

Red Lipstick -Why It Gets a Bum Rap

Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 4.18.26 PM

  This is why red lipstick gets a bum rap. Blondes rarely look their best in dark red lipstick when they wear it with drab, earthy colors. Red lipstick demands Big City colors and styles, plus perfect foundation. Also, yellow hair and red lipstick conjure up images of ketchup and mustard. Not good. Kudos to …
