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 …

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 …

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.

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 …

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, …

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 …

Julianne Moore and Makeup Colors

JulianneMooreCompare

  Julianne, you’re gorgeous, but you need to change your makeup from warm to cool colors. My 30 years research indicates that most redheads have cool, not warm, skin. That means you will look more natural and prettier with subtle pink undertones in your makeup. Your face will pop more with cool makeup. See the …
