Lindsay Lohan

Colour: Ouch- it just looks horrible on her- far too harsh for skin colour and it just not working with her coloured dark hair. It looks very tacky on her and as well with such a fabric.
Shape: Actually the shape is great on her- it gives her petite scale some volume and curves. Also, the shoulder detail is a great detail for body shape.
Style: Unfortunately nothing works here – all her accessories are all over the place and have a life of their own. The golden shoes are too golden for her skin and clash with silvery bracelet and earrings. Her dark nail varnish just doesn’t work with any of it and her hairstyle looks very granny like. But worst is her blusher, which is so wrong in colour for her but also so intensified that you can’t help yourself and think of the times when ” 3 Angels for Charlies” was the latest thing in show bizz.

Overall Rating:*
One Star


Natalie Cole:

Colour: No- the colour is very wrong for her. It is far too light for her dark complexion and secondly when you have feminine curves you go as well for darker shades with clean cuts. The light colour combination looks not only to busy but draws attention to the wrong assets eg Salma Hayek at Madonna’s party last week. Salma looked dropped dead gorgeous.
Shape: Her dress shape in not totally wrong- it gives her beautiful silhouette. The wrap around detail works nicely on her because she has big enough waist and her bosom is not competing with the extra fabric. Unfortunately the lower part goes literally “pear shape” because of the many pleats. It would not have been so wrong but in combination with the light colour pattern she looks too full at the wrong places and as result she looks bottom heavy. It is far too busy this dress for in pattern, in colour and shape- she can’t have it all.
Style: She has beautiful thick hair and because she makes a feature in the way she wears her hair it provides more volume to the top half and gives it more balance. The clutch bag is pretty to the dress but too petite for her scale.
Overall Rating:3 *** Three Stars
Nelly Furtado

Colour: The colour is good and works because it is worn away from her face and hair.
Style: No, No, No- all very wrong here. This is a dress for an hourglass or column with a medium sized bosom. This shape of the dress makes her bottom heavy the detailing and pleats are at the wrong places of her body, which is adding even more volume to her lower half and last not least as a pear shaped you never ever wear figure hugging dresses because they follow the body line and as pear shape you are not in balance. Therefore you keep the drama on top and go easy and quiet on the bottom.
Style: The necklace is nice, but doesn’t work on this outfit, because the gap in her décolleté line is too big and so the dress and necklace seem to be disconnected. As result the necklace looks like more like a collar. And what happened to her shoes- muted colour? You don’t introduce with such a dress so many different styles- they look all disconnected and the shoes do not work with the dress and don’t create a nice counter element to the necklace.
Overall Rating:** Two Stars
Alicia Keys

Colour: Harmonious choice of colours
Shape: This dress works very well on her body- highlights the right places and gives a nice balance between the top and lower half.
Style: What is it with the bag- nice colour touch- but this structural shape and style doesn’t work here with the dress and type of event. The accessories work but look boring with the outfit. All in looks too neat and if she is on her way to a “tea party” rather than going to the Grammy awards.
Overall Rating:*** Three Stars
