Fabulous colour for her and by keeping the whole outfit one colour it makes her appear longer.
The mermaid shape is not bad, but a dangerous choice for someone who is petite in height. The mermaid hemline doesn’t have a lengthening effect, but quite the opposite. Therefore it is reserved only for the tall and leggy women, who can afford to lose a few inches visually in height. Normally the mermaid hemline goes off at the knee or even below the knee. Since Eva is short, the mermaid shape starts above the knee. It doesn’t look catastrophic, but it’s not right. She doesn’t have a lot of waist definition and this is a dress that shouts for it. The dress is all about female curves! Think Daryl Hannah in Splash or Marilyn Monroe in “Diamonds are the girls best friends!
Hair and clutch bag are nice and pretty- but boring- it is missing the “wow” effect and especially doesn’t feel current! What about some turquoise or golden cuffs? She would have been turned instantly to “Wonderwoman”. What a shame since she is such a beautiful and likeable woman.
Overall rating: 3 *** Three Stars
The colour is very wrong – not only too light but also too muddy for her colouring. Who would put a young, successful and attractive in such a bin (trash can) liner?
The style of the top half actually works very well for her upper body and flatters her bust line. However who had the idea of putting spikes in her bra? She has a nice full bust and really doesn’t need this sort of gimmicky enlargement. Tthe waistline works well and gives way to her pretty waistline.
From there everything is just downhill. As a full hourglass, one has to underline with simple lines and shape the bust, waist and hipline. Every fullness or fuzziness needs to be avoided since it is just adding weight to waist or hips (and in this case it’s the hips). The short full dress with its box pleats is not working. Her hips look larger and makes her upper body look fuller and rounder than it is. Her petite shoes are just underlining the chunky and fullness of the skirt
Her hairstyle is well chosen for her short neck, but unfortunately it can’t even out the badly chosen dress for her.
Overall Rating: 2 ** Two Stars
