Celebrities Reviewed: Heidi Klum (Project Runway) & Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives)
COLOR: The white and embellishment on her dress work for her and is a fab choice for such a red carpet event.
BODYSHAPE: The overall shape works but is not entirely perfect on her.
The fitted style gives her almost a balanced hourglass figure. The problem is here that she doesn’t have a much of a defined waist to pull off the dress completely. She s need more curves on the bum and a smaller waist. If her neckline were lower plunging v-neck or cowl drape would have done more for her than this short v- neck version. Visually, it would have given her more curves in the waist area.
STYLE: Not wearing any accessoires with this dress was a wise choice, because she would have looked like an overdone Christmas tree. However what is up with her bob hair style? Didn’t anyone notice it? It is so “yesterday”! Posh was giving the last hint by moving on to a new hair style. HUffman was probably the last to know.
Overall Rating: 3*** Three Stars
COLOR: The grey colour is spot on choice for her colouring, and so in line with the current fashion.
BODYSHAPE: You have to hand it to her – to wear such a shape off dress can be only worn by a fortunate few and she really works it. You need to be tall to give the layers the proper proportion. You need to be a neat hourglass (meaning having perfect proportion between hips and shoulders, connected by a long defined waist coming with nice bustline that is not too small/not to big). Third, you must have long arms.
This dress has more chances to go wrong than right. Her bust gives the dress a nice curve, but not so much that it would look too full with the cape layering over it. The layer over her bum gives her a nice round curve without crowding the hip.
STYLE: Her chunky ring finger complements the look of the dress, I am not sure about her hair style. Her sweet, next door “yummy-mummy” hair style doesn’t quite work with this sharp-edged dress. She would have been better advised for “a la Marlene Dietrich hair style” that would given structure, volume and edge to this dress.
A vintage dress has to be worn with style of its past and hardly never works in a casual style- Vintage means normally dressing up than dressing down!
Overall Rating: 5***** Five Stars
