  • Good article on Frida Kahlo–quite interesting! I just watched the movie “Frida” last week, so it really resonated. Thanks for the link.

  • The TV character’s style that I like is Morgana from Merlin. The stylists (costume and makeup) really understand Katie McGrath’s high value contrast. When she wears jewel colored clothes she has strong red lippy and when she has white or lavender clothes she has pale lippy. And her jewellery is so delicate.

  • The real furs she wears at times aside – I am still an 80s girl at heart – I just love Caroline Issa’s style. I would have to adjust quite a bit, not just because of the difference in budget but also because of a difference in shape to copy her style, but colors do the exact same thing for her as they do for me. And she really knows what looks good on her.
