  • I have to change that ladies necklaces. They are not enhancing her beauty. Does she have any other statement necklaces. Lets see her in other gear. Please.

      • Jill’s and Coco Chanels. Can we see you both in something different? Let’s see your style exemplified. Let’s see some of her other necklaces. Let’s see Jill in bold orange statement pieces – just 1 bold one to make an impact. (My 2 bobs worth).

        • When Jill and I get together, which is rare – we have only a couple of hours to make lots of videos. We don’t get changed as we don’t have the time. I’m sorry you’re bored with Jill’s necklace! That was the last of the videos we recorded that day, so next time we make videos she’ll be wearing something different I’m sure.

  • Recently I read Sandra Cabots book called: The Body Shaping Diet. This is a serious MUST for all women, because certain styles just can’t be worn anymore and make us miserable because our hormones (say Estrogen dominance) make apples more round and give them huge triangle shaped upper bodies. I recommend this book to all, as I have lost 1 cup size and 2 back size (ie: from 16C to 12C) from gaining control of that Estrogen Dominance, and give you back the body to be able to wear, once again, what you want in your style.
    It’s so hard to adapt when your body won’t squeeze into the style you love. This is a great thing to look into for women to be able to wear what they love.
    For me, I can now wear jeans with no muffin top, no rolls and no love handles. This to me is the key essence to style first and then you can shop so much happier.

    I mean you will save time on waxing if you have my body shape because the diet controls facial hair! Hooray. Free of the horrible issues that plague you and rob you of hours in your preparation time, you can wear what you want and avoid tonnes of the ageing issues that plague women and men.

    Grab the book off ebay, cheap, read, be amazed, fine tune your diet, read the success stories of women who once had barely any hips who now can swing those low rise jeans with confidence and more…

  • One of the things I love when watching these video is – Jill’s necklaces, just that specific group that is, it looks wonderful – just her and so stylish. The wearing of this combo, very bold and the colours together, to my eye, really works and says a lot about her – boldly stylish, slightly unconventional, a great sense of fun – I wish more ladies would adapt stylish solutions out of the box like this, if it suits them of course.
    On the subject of style icons, I think Audrey Hepburn is very over rated – everyone quotes her, and really her style only suits a few very slim boyish waif figures, it seems to me, but I may be wrong. I would go for Sophia Loren in some of her early films (despite the fact that I am a mature lady of 61). As an hourglass figure who didn’t like to display her figure when actually young (far too self conscious) I feel this is probably how I should have dressed! I just adore that luscious swagger, that laid back almost lazy Mediterranean self assurance with which she wears off the shoulder, quite casual but often fitted outfits, sexy, female, never ditzy or sweet, quite strong but still immensely approachable looking, no wonder Cary Grant wanted to marry her, complete attraction of opposites. In maturity she has a sort of grown up stylish Italian look, which my budget would not extend to, and I live deep in the country, but I still love glamour in the form of chandelier earrings and good make up and lovely bags and showing a small waist off! Keep wearing those necklaces Jill, they are beautiful on you, and Imogen, equally, the necklaces you wear suit you perfectly!

    • I like dressing outside the box and always thought Sophia Loren was sexy too. In fact my first pair if glasses were inspired by her. My comment was simply I felt Jills necklaces here were larger then her head and heavy; nothing more and I guess it’s an ode to fashion design to see these ladies in various outfits for us to love.

  • I’ve discovered this blog entry rather late but its got me thinking about my style icons. There are a lot it turns out. Louise Brooks, Lauren Bacall, Katherine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Julie Christie, Marlene Dietrich, Sade Adu, Jackie O, Linda Evangelista, Boy George, Sofia Loren and Lauren Hutton. In the case of Lauren Bacall its a case of totally wanting to be her. In Boy George’s case he has been a wonderful creative inspiration. Marlene Dietrich is style perfection and possibly the first true super model. Louise Brooks for that bob, Sofia Loren is so elegant – that red trouser suit and scarf at Cannes – brilliant! Sade Adu was 80s chic. Rita Hayworth because she isn’t skinny but has a really fab healthy body. I wish some of the cat walk models would take note. I do miss those 80s Cosmo cover girls who looked athletic and well rather than gaunt. Lauren Hutton’s Charlie perfume ads – that gorgeous grey trouser suit – the heels, of course I wanted to look like that! Lastly, back in the 70s I recall an advert for sanitary towels which featured a wonderful photo of a debutante in a stunning ball gown from the 50s which drove me to rock 50s style. I was 11 at the time…
