Everyday Starlet

Jayne Mansfield

Lipstick Wardrobe

Most Starlets would feel naked without lipstick.  Most glamour girls have a signature lip color they love, but it’s important to have a lipstick wardrobe so that you are prepared for any occasion.

First, we have the essentials…

Glamorous Starlet Swimsuit Wardrobe

It’s no surprise that Starlets love the beach…. and she needs to keep her aura of glamour even in the sand.  Most Starlets spend so much time on the beach… and getting photographed there… that she has a collection of swimsuits that make her feel like a Gorgeous Glamour Goddess.  Here are a Starlet’s bathing suit wardrobe basics….

How To Get a Pin-Up Girl Body

Who doesn’t love a Pin-Up Girl?  They are adorable and sexy all at the same time, and they come in many shapes and sizes.  The key to a Pin-Up Girl body is the soft, hourglass figure.  That means ideally, your top and bottom half are the same with a tiny little waist, and a curvy but not overly muscular look.  That may not be achievable for everyone, but you’d be amazed what exercise and diet can get you.  Personally, I have always had curves, but sometimes they can get out of control.  So here are some Pin-Up inspired exercises for that photo worthy figure…

Upper Body

Pin-Up Girls have a soft look.  No hard bulging muscles.  So incorporating an upper body workout into a cardio session is ideal, like with some type of martial arts, swimming (Pin-Up Girls love to be in swimsuits), or Dita Von Teese’s choice Fencing. (more…)

Glamorous Backyard Essentials

Warm weather is approaching and many of you may be thinking of heading outdoors. What better way to enjoy the new season than lounging in your very own glamorous backyard. Here are some glamorous backyard essentials with inspiration from some Old Hollywood Starlets and Glamour Girls…

Plenty of flowers like Audrey Hepburn, who was an avid gardener

A Blonde Education

813QER-JXCL

Jennie Garth recently released a memoir, “Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde.”  As a former 90210 fan (the original, not the knock-off), I will definitely check out this book, but for all my blonde Starlets out there (and any who would like to live vicariously through us platinum ladies) I compiled a list of my favorite blonde books… (more…)

Starlet Soundtrack: Entertaining

We’ve already discussed how much Starlets love to entertain at home…. And great music is a big part of that.  You definitely want to create a playlist when planning a get together.  It can be music that goes with the theme of the event or just music that you love and think your guests will enjoy.  Some things to consider:

•Start with lively music that gets people excited about the party

•Make sure the music isn’t too loud or distracting

•End your playlist with slower music to wind down the event and signal to guests that it’s time to go

Here is Dita Von Teese’s Entertaining Playlist:

Now one thing I love to do is cook…

…and I love to listen to music and relax in the kitchen when trying new recipes for entertaining or just for everyday meals (when I have time).  For this, I have a playlist of Billie Holiday favorites.  You could also listen to Amy Winehouse (our generation’s Billie Holiday)… or if you’re cooking Italian, a little Sinatra.

Stay tuned for your Starlets in Love playlist ideas

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.
