Long Skirts Look Rigid and Dated

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 2.56.38 PM

  Amazingly, long skirts continue to be seen. In spite of the fact that they create a long, rigid line, which makes a woman seem stiff as well as less approachable. If you want to cover your legs, It’s better to wear pants instead. At least pants permit the hourglas shape of a woman’s body …

Michelle + Anne in Fuchsia

Sandy Dumont discusses candidates' wives in Hot Pink

Let’s face it. Fuchsia (a.k.a. Hot Pink when it is lighter and brighter) is a very flattering color for most women. It makes the face look softer, more feminine and more luminous. Both the First Lady and Mrs. Romney look beautiful and elegant. Mrs. Obama is more formal with her long-sleeve jacket – a change …

Ann Romney

Image Consultant Sandy Dumont discusses Ann Romney's color and style choices

Ann Romney is a very beautiful woman, with a wholesome, all-American look. When she is in the right colors and styes, she takes your breath away.

Oscars – More Color Faux Pas

Five actresses in popular colors

Last night, watching the Oscars in Hollywood, I was struck by the number of beautiful women who made themselves look nearly invisible because of the colors they wore. This is the one night you don’t want to look blah. You want to stand out! If you want to own the room when you enter it, …

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 …

Tim Gunn Needs an Image Consultant

Please remember that grey has mostly negative connotations: a grey area, a grey lie, old and grey, sad and grey, tired and grey. Of course, it’s favored by politicians because it personifies a grey area that …

Kim Kardashian – Ditch the Wrap Dress

Kim Kardashian in unflattering wrap dress

Kim Kardashian looks elegant and toned in her beautiful white pantsuit, worn on her recent European trip. It makes her waist look slim, and the padded shoulders of the white top balance her hips and show off an hourglass figure. This is the kind of look she might consider adopting. It’s covertly sexy rather than …
