Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl Halloween Costume

Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl Halloween Costume

As a Starlet and a Comedian, the film Funny Girl has a special place in my heart.  It’s a biopic of one of comedy’s most legendary sketch comedians, Fanny Brice…. played by legendary diva Barbra Streisand.  Since Fanny’s birthday is today, only 2 days before Halloween, I thought it would be a fitting tribute to her to put together a Funny Girl Halloween costume.  It was pretty simple.  I had a leopard coat and hat already (I mean… what Starlet doesn’t?), did my hair in a side parted updo, and added dramatic makeup….

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…

Outfit Inspired by Marilyn Monroe in Denim

Denim is not usually a Starlet’s first fashion choice. However, when worn fitted, cuffed and with a classic white shirt it can be a chic casual choice.  No one rocked denim like Marilyn Monroe.  So I grabbed my jean by The Limited, a classic white shirt by New York & Co (also seen here in this Elizabeth Taylor inspired look), and my Forever 21 boots and tried to recreate some of Marilyn’s classic looks.

Silver Screen Style: Pal Joey

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…

Dark Florals For Every Personality

ModCloth dress dark floral 4 differnt looks

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.

Classic

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…)

6 Lessons from Lauren Bacall

Yesterday we lost one of the few remaining Old Hollywood Starlets, Lauren Bacall.  So in honor of her amazing life, here are 6 lessons we can learn from the Hollywood legend…

Find Your Best Look and Stick With It

If you look at pics of Ms. Bacall over the years, her hair changes very little.  Sometimes it’s a little shorter, but it is almost always side parted with an Old Hollywood wave.  This basic hairstyle was flattering and yet didn’t distract attention from her signature stare.

A Timeless Wardrobe Doesn’t Have to Be Boring

Most of the photos of Ms. Bacall show her in outfits that can be easily worn today, yet she always looks stunning.  She even manages to make pearls a little less demure. (more…)
