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!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

What I Love This Week - Ray-Ban Sunglasses




My well-loved polarized Ray-Bans are scratched from constant wearing and setting them down.  Apparently, I should have put them in their case more than I did.  One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me.  Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. 
I tried them on and the rest is history.   I love these retro sunglasses.  They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must.  Why?  A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally.   With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays.
For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake.  You will not see the fish swimming clearly.  With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye.  Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. 
By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …
