Starlet Soundtrack: Getting Ready

It’s no secret that Starlets take a while to get ready, so sometimes they need a little motivation to keep them going.  The perfect playlist is just the trick.  It’s a trick used by Dita Von Teese, who says in her advice column on xojane.com

“If you’re the kind of girl who loses track of time, try creating a playlist that runs a certain amount of time so that you can notice when you should be getting out the door. I like to put a ridiculous song at the end of my playlist so it’s my obvious cue to hurry up!”

Here are some song ideas (new and old) to get you excited about getting ready to go out…

Also, when getting ready for a Burlesque performance, Dita listens to some Beastie Boys.  She tweeted…

Sad to hear of the passing of Adam from The Beastie Boys, they’re prominent on my “gettin’ ready for a show” playlist. Rest in peace. — Dita Von Teese (@DitaVonTeese) May 4, 2012

Now sometimes a Starlet needs to relax in a warm bath. For this she tends to listen to classical.  Usually music from the opera Carmen, the ballet Swan Lake, or a little Bach or Beethoven…

So relax in a tub and stay tuned for music for entertaining

Entertaining, Starlet Style: Fashion

To finish out our basic entertaining series (including basic party planning, cocktails, and food), we need to talk about fashion!  When entertaining at home a Starlet looks for outfits that have a combination of comfort and glamour.  Hostess dresses are basically very glamorous pajamas, and they fit the bill.  If that is a little too casual for you, you can go with a kaftan like Elizabeth Taylor, or some capri pants and top like Jayne Mansfield.   Here are some looks for inspiration….

Many Starlets will go barefoot to give their guests a casual feeling… she never wants her guests to feel uptight.  As a result, a pre-party pedicure is a must… as well as a manicure and a trip to her hairdresser.
Happy Entertaining!
Kisses

Starlets in a Snowstorm

Not all Everyday Starlets live in sunny California.  Some, like me, live far from it.  Here in New England we are having major snow storm… but for a true Starlet that just means an opportunity to break out the chic outerwear, and maybe play in the snow.  Here are some Starlets at their snow bunny best…

Silver Screen Style: Charade

Nothing is better on a cold New England New Years Eve than snuggling with someone you love and watching a movie.  This past NYE, my boyfriend suggested the Cary Grant/Audrey Hepburn classic Charade (I know, how lucky am I).  I can’t believe I had never seen this film before.  It was funny, suspenseful, and definitely entertaining… but I couldn’t get past how timeless Audrey Hepburn’s fashion was.  Here are some of her looks for inspiration…

Old Hollywood vs New Hollywood

Personally, I love the Starlets of Old Hollywood.  However, if you are a more modern gal, you can still be an Everyday Starlet.  The idea being that your life is a movie and you are the star, so you should always look your best.  Here are some Starlets from Old Hollywood and New Hollywood for inspiration:

Silver Screen Style: Bandwagon

Some movies are pure entertainment and others are also fashion inspiration.  Today we look at the fashions from one of my favorite movies Bandwagon.  Cyd Charisse’s outfits for this movie are timeless…

Signature Colors

Every Starlet has a signature hair color, but they also have signature style colors that they are associated with.

White

Marilyn Monroe was known for her signature red lips, but she was famous for wearing white.  She felt that a white wardrobe against her pale skin and platinum hair made her look angelic.

Yellow

Lana Turner was a big fan of yellow everything.

Pink

Pink is the most common association with femininity.  Several Starlets have used this as their signature color, but in very different ways.  Jayne Mansfield was all about sex appeal.

While Audrey Hepburn was more about classic sophistication.

She even famously quoted about her signature color:

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

And Audrey was in the pinkest movie of all time, Funny Face:

I hope this inspires you to pick your own signature color.

Getting into Costume: Outerwear

Unless you actually live in Hollywood or a warm climate (lucky you), you will probably need to have some cold weather clothing in your wardrobe.  Here are your basics, and ideas for some glamorous options:

Coats

Every woman needs a basic trench coat in a neutral color and a fun coat in a bright color or print.

Hats

Hats can be tricky for a Starlet because they can mess up their hair.  The solution is to wear ones that are so cute, you will want to wear them all the time.

Scarves

A Starlet loves a scarf.  Especially one that she can dramatically throw over her shoulders when exiting a room in a huff.

Gloves

A Starlet wants to protect her hands.  She loves to do that with pretty gloves with fun details.

Boots

A Starlet needs her shoes to be stylish, but she also needs to walk glamorously in any weather.  So she needs snow boots and/or rain boots that are fashionable and functional.

A note about furs: Old Hollywood Starlets wore fur.  It was a sign of the times.  Most of them were big animal rights activists, so I doubt they would wear fur today.  Wearing fur is a personal choice.  To some it is still a sign of luxury.  In my opinion, if it is a vintage fur then go for it (the animal has already died, don’t let it be in vain).  There are great faux fur options nowadays as well.
