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!

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
