Jill Kirsh Color Shows How Color Can Make – or Break – Fashion Choices! Part 2 #LAStory

This is part 2 and the last post about the Emmy fashions and who chose the wrong color for their Emmy dress. It’s important to note that the right hue can make a tremendous difference in how one looks. And if someone blows it, the entire outfit becomes the spotlight and not the person– which is the key reason one would go to a red carpet event. Being seen on the red carpet isn’t just about dresses, it’s about looking good and the dress/outfit providing support to show a person in the best possible way rather than the dress in the best possible way.
(If you don’t understand what I just said, leave a comment or visit the post from 10/5 to see what I am talking about). The person who showed me the error of my color-ways.. was Jill Kirsh of Jill Kirsh Color. She made a dramatic change in my color palette which in turn made a dramatic change in how good I looked when I wore the right colors for me.

When Jill and I were talking after the Emmys 2015, she sent me before and after shots of celebs from the red carpet with their dresses photoshopped to the right color. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I am splitting this collection into 2 posts because these are large photos and because there are a lot of them.

None of these women have had their makeup or hair color touched in the course of the dress color being changed.

Jane Krakowski
The pale pink of the original gown Jane wore on the red carpet made her fade into the woodwork. She looked pale and her makeup was barely visible. She needed more than just makeup but jewelry and a different color dress. See the difference when Jill Kirsh changed the color to a deep peach/ salmon color? Suddenly Jane is glowing and she is wearing the dress, rather than the dress being the focal point of the look.

January Jones

January Jones was just a tiny bit off in her color choice. The jumpsuit looks fabulous but with the cool tone of the green, the jumpsuit is all one really notices. Change the green to a brighter more yellow-green tone, and suddenly it’s like the lights went on and January lit up the room. A tonal change in a single hue can make the difference from ho-hum to fabulous.

Padma Lakshmi

Padma Lakshmi can pull off just about any fashion but the wrong color gives her skin a yellow cast. She is gorgeous but she looked almost ill wearing that yellow- mustardy green color. Shift that mustard color into an emerald green and pow! Padma is a 1000 watt lightbulb lighting up the red carpet!

Tracee Ellis Ross

I have a real problem with this dress. It’s not the right design for Ross. The warm pink isn’t right on her and it makes the wrong dress even more noticeable. (Note that while Edie Falco wore the wrong dress in the wrong color, switching it to the right color made it seem a lot more flattering.) Jill s shifted the color to a rich royal purple and suddenly Tracee doesn’t look like the birthday cake that she does in that odd shade of pink. I love the purple on her. It’s perfect. The dress suddenly takes a back seat to Ross who is very much a knock out in that purple shade!


Thanks to the fantastic Jill Kirsh of JillKirshColor.com. You need her system. It’s easy, fast and fabulous.
As long as you don’t tweak your hair color out of the color family you can stick with the same colors.
