Celebrity Style Slam: Who Does It Better? Drew Barrymore or Kyra Sedgewick?
It’s interesting when Jill Kirsh of JillKirshColor.com and I are doing these reviews. We are on the phone discussing the dresses, hair, make-up and jewelry and you might think we are crazy because I have sent her all these photos and said “let’s do the ‘slam'”.
Celebrity Style Slam: Kyra Sedgewick vs Drew Barrymore
It looks like her hair is a rather golden because she looks washed out in this dress. Had her hair been an ash-blonde,+ then the dress would have worked a bit better. This blue-based pink dress is not doing her hair or skintone any favors. Even her nails are a bit strong. I was hoping the nails were fuschia to give her a break because the color would have worked with the details on the dress. However the black shoes really don’t make it happen for her. The shoes command attention and take the eye to the carpet rather than up to Kyra’s very pretty, soft and sexy hairstyle and make-up. This just doesn’t work.
I saw this dress and was shocked that Sedgewick would dress in something so fussy. She’s worn other fussy things before that didn’t quite work right (the Armani Prive pale grey fluffy ruffled ) She needs a new stylist because the stylist isn’t helping choose the best colors or styles for her body type and making she looks every inch the beautiful– glamourous– star that she is and should be showing off on the red carpet. The shoes — big nope. Where’s the bag? What’s with the itty-bitty jewelry? Is there any jewelry? Why red nails with pink dress? Lots of question, no answers. Big mistake. Kyra, hire us, we are a lot cheaper and we can make you look like a million bucks– for a lot less.
I love Drew Barrymore. The color of the dress is not peachy pink but a dusty rose which doesn’t work so well Trade the dusty rose for a soft salmon or peach and Drew glows like a gorgeous sunset. The hair is perfect. Her makeup is good though I would with glaze her favorite red lipstick with a bronze or serious golden shimmer for “sheer perfection”.
I think Drew looks better than she has in recent red carpet appearances. Marilyn Monroe she isn’t– thank goodness. She’s a girly girl and in this dress, she’s a bit over-the-top. Someone called it a “cotton candy confection” (LA Times I think) but the color isn’t right for Drew’s hair color- labeled as blush/bronze, it doesn’t appear that way in photos in 2 different kinds of light. It looks dusty pink and that’s very drab for someone of Drew’s color and also her personality! It’s not as flattering to her as other outfits she has worn.
I agree with Jill’s suggestions. (Drew could use a new stylist too) thankfully she has a handbag and it’s the right color- and so are the shoes. While in different times that dress might have worked better (all dressed up for the ball but the time for balls has passed at least in this economy) — and the lip color doesn’t work either. . It’s Drew’s signature color but — darlin’ I would change up to a coral or warm with a serious gold tone to give some sparkle and maybe the dress would have looked better so that she was the queen of this red carpet.
