Celebrities Featured: Candice Bushnell and Bette Midler
Bette Midler
Colour: The brown and gold colour combination is such a winner for her. The brown top brings out her hair colour and calms the golden skirt at the same time.
Bodyshape: Her scoop neckline is a fabulous choice for her bigger bust and the ¾ sleeve line makes the whole outfit look casual yet elegant. The only imperfection here is that the top does not fit well around her waist line- adding unflattering “handles” at her waist. The hemline of the top is spot on and makes her shape balanced. Though the skirt is golden metallic, its pencil shape ensures that it is well fitted on her and gives way to her beautiful shaped lean legs.
Style: The whole outfit screams understated elegance and sophistication- not underdressed- not overdressed- right for her age, shape and occasion.
Overall rating: 5***** Five Stars

Candice Bushnell
Colour: Eventhough black is not a great colour for her, I am always surprised to see celebrities dressed in black from top to toe when we have not only summer, but also the whole fashion is geared up for colours.
It is such a boring and disappointing choice- because it makes everything look so dated and tired. We have seen enough of black, black/red or black/purple combination!
Try something new! Stay with the time! Be adventurous and versatile: keep & stay young! Though fringe is very in, but with this dress, the colour and purple handbag, I am bored just looking at her.
Bodyshape: This straight shift dress shape is also so unflattering for someone with boobs, waist and hips. It adds unflattering pounds around her waistline and makes bum and thighs look big and unproportional bigger to her shoulder line. The shoe works for her leg line and the choice of bag is good for her shape.
Style: Considering this choice of dress, it looks all too goofy — like old news: seen and done it. If you are trying to capitalize on a look, style and colour that has been around for a while, make sure you get it right!! Otherwise, you are just remembered as a bad copy.
Overall Rating: 3*** Three stars
