Last month we looked at Fall/Winter fashion trends that work for Everyday Starlets. Today we’re looking at beauty trends. As I mentioned in the fashion post, Starlets don’t tend to be trendy, but they always follow fashion and what’s current. So here are a few beauty trends that modern day Old Hollywood Starlets can rock….
Modern day Cary Grant, George Clooney, is a married man… cue the tears of single women all over the world. Clooney oozes Old Hollywood Glamour at all times and his wedding was no exception. The wedding photo is on the cover of the latest People magazine.
Grace Kelly is also on the cover, which is ironic because Clooney’s bride wore a dress that had the elegance of Ms. Kelly (more…)
Starlet’s love the classics… whether it’s fashion, beauty, film, or recipes. My mother used to make Waldorf salads all the time when I was a little Starlet. She used Miracle Whip as a substitute for mayonnaise. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered that the original Waldorf Salad recipe didn’t contain mayo at all. I took this original recipe, I roasted the walnuts instead of using candies walnuts (they have less sugar and still have a ton of flavor), and skipped the celery (personal preference). It was a fun Fall lunch perfect for a Starlet! (more…)
Eyebrow shape is crucial to framing the face. Over the years brows have been thick and wild, shaved off and drawn on in a thin line, and everywhere in between. Personally, I like mine somewhere in between. I think a shaped, groomed arch is the most flattering for the majority of women. So here are my tips for getting a glamorous set of brows….
It’s rare to have two Bombshells in one film, let alone two Bombshells and a Sinatra… but Pal Joey is a film that fits the bill. It has classic songs, beautiful dancing…. And then there’s the fashion. No other film gives tribute to the classic sweater/pencil skirt combo like Kim Novak in this musical. That, combined with Rita Hayworth as a rich socialite, and you have wardrobe inspiration that can even be worn today…
Starlets don’t typically follow trends. If you look at many Old Hollywood Starlets, they are dressed in timeless fashion that could be worn in any era. However, Starlets love to follow fashion, and each season there are usually a few trends that catch her eye. So here are some of this season’s Starlet approved trends…
If you’re a Starlet on a budget (and most of us are) you can still have access to the same tools that Hollywood Personal Stylists have to make their clients look and feel like a movie star. Here’s what I keep in my kit…
I’ve been hearing that dark florals are going to be big for Fall. In my opinion they are timeless, seasonless, and ageless. So I decided to take this ModCloth dress and style it 4 different ways, to show how versatile this basic dress is. This was especially challenging for me because this dress is actually navy and I usually wear black.
This is my favorite look. It’s very Grace Kelly/Betty Draper. I paired this dress with pearl earrings, nude pumps, and a classic straw purse. I finished this look with a peachy pink lipstick. This is a great look for work or a special luncheon. (more…)
Over the holidays Dita Von Teese did a video with Cointreau showing some easy and delicious party cocktails (you can see it here). In the video show wore some gorgeous cocktail glass earrings (no doubt a tribute to her martini glass burlesque act). I searched everywhere for these earrings but to no avail… so I decided to make my own. Nothing like a little DIY project to get Starlet style on a budget.
