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!

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Perfume Spritz - My Favorite Things

  Beauty in a Bottle "Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure." Beauty is hard to describe.  The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land.  Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective.  Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic.  It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person.  Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.  What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume.  Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary.  Thus, the story of fragrances commenced.  Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good."  Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.   We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine.  The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle. Even in

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer.
