Forever Chic Style Runner-Up


Anne Hathaway: “Retro Golden Goddess” Hathaway bar non screams Hollywood movie star siren over and over again.    The Armani Prive shimmering copper fitted gown emphasized this goddess’s svelte silhouette along with softly curled long hair and a red delicious smile.   The long glittering sleeves and puffed shoulders were novel and reminiscent of the 1980’s.   The haute couture ensemble and a saucy personality are the key ingredients for this soon to be Oscar Award Show host on Sunday, February 27, 2011.  


Forever Chic Style Queen 

Effortlessly exudes confidence, smart and sophisticated elegance, poise and manners.  Everyone stops, turns and listens


Angelina Jolie:  "Emerald Lioness”   The limo car opens and Hollywood’s famous movie star couple alights to a commotion of camera’s and screaming fans.  Jolie in an Atelier Versace emerald green sparkler with long-sleeves and a cinched -in waist with pointed shoulders created an unforgettable vision.  The makeup emphasized the green eyes and the hair strategically draped over one shoulder created a lioness image.    Along with Jolie, Pitt, her leading man, also exuded movie madness chemistry dressed like a King in a black tux, white shirt, shades and bow tie.   As they skirted the runway, this movie star couple edged over to sign autographs. 



King Henry VIII – A Visual Mess  

Later in life, Henry was seen visually as a messyet was told how debonair handsome and charming his appearance and actions were to the world  



Helena Bonham Carter: "Wickedly Mad” Bonham Carter was truly mad to wear this over the top Vivienne Westwood creation for a red carpet affair. The crazy patterned fabric and black tulle with one red shoe and one green shoe, rats nest hair with Beatles sunglasses was frightfully dreadful.   There are rules for black tie events and even Bonham Carter who starred in The Kings Speech, in the role of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, knows the difference between tacky and elegantly stylish.  After all, she is brilliantly British.  Why the court jester rather than a queen?   Or perhaps Bonham Carter’s role in 2010 as The Queen of Hearts, known as The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland was the muse for the evening?  Alice’s dad in Alice in Wonderland, was right when he said to Alice though this should have been said to Helena Bonham Carter, "You're mad, bonkers ... but I'll tell you a secret: All the best people are."   Bonham Carter fortunately or unfortunately did stand out in the crowd on this night, just like King Henry VIII.  And, similar to King Henry VIII charismatic persona, Helena Bonham Carter’s name was on everyone’s lips! How charminly brilliant - if I must say myself.  Brilliant!

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!

  Lakes of Beauty Build an Oasis of Love Many are sighing with relief.  Now is the time to unite and heal the country.  Be open, be present and accept what comes. Would it not be wonderful to unite a fractured society where hate and anger were and still are at an all-time high.  Is it not time to start accepting one another, to listen to one another, and to support one another? Rather than throw stones at those with opposite thoughts or opinions.  It has been interesting and sad to witness such vitriol, destruction, and chaos this past year and hence.  Perchance rhetoric going forward will be filled with kindness for their fellow man.  One can only pray for sunshine to fill souls.  Thus, we begin again.  For now, notice the beauty around us.   The fall and winter to come are filled with peaceful moments when walking on your favorite trail.  Beauty surrounds us if we look.  The leaves, the wildlife, the rain, the lakes, the peace the small moments. Or maybe in your daily activities, you

Baby It's Cold Outside "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson The damp, dreary, wet and snow filled days are upon us for the upcoming months.   The change in the air is palpable along with early darkness falling across the land.   2020 has indeed been the craziest year for everyone with the horror of Covid, lockdowns and a roller coaster election.   After a nail-biting, hair-pulling, stress filled election this week with no clear resolution, it is best to remain steady and calm.   Life is indeed a wild ride with ups and downs, twists and turns.  You would not want your life to be dull, would you?  This year, more than any other year, in my lifetime, 2020 is one of complete societal pandemonium.  If someone had told me on New Year's Eve, that everyone's life in 2020 would be completely turned upside down, we would have looked at them and thought they were off their rocker.  Or maybe had imbibed a little too much.  Of course, it was

  The Bridge Thanksgiving is this week.  Celebrations might be different this year with a smaller group, yet spreading goodwill remains constant.   Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pie and all the fixings will be set out on the table with a simple reminder.  We are thankful to live in this country.  We are thankful for our family and friends.  We are thankful for our existence.  We are thankful for our homes.   There is so much to be thankful in 2020.  Yes, there is.  Is it a tumultuous year?  Yes, absolutely one of extreme lifestyle change, tragedy for many and a shift for all to think about what is important in your own life.   What is important to you?  Is it being connected? Is it nature? Is it helping others or sharing yourself when needed?   I think this year is one of growth, challenge, perseverance, acceptance, and change.  We are crossing a bridge this season.  A bridge of hope.  A bridge of renewal.  How can we prepare to embrace this new bridge of hope?  The First Step - C
