Have you thought about what might make you look your most gorgeous?

it’ll be something unique to you that brings out your very best, so you can

relax and know you look amazing.

OK here are some pointers to help –

  • Ask yourself what your best assets are – yes, we all have them.
  • Some ideas – great legs; sexy, curvy body; beautiful cleavage;

a swan neck, a slim straight silhouette, lovely shoulders – go on,

which one/one’s resinate with you?

  • You want to focus on on your best qualities when choosing an outfit.
  • Shapes and styles for the party season:

Sartorial elegance for straight body shapes ie, shifts, cocktail dresses,

simple and classy

Miss Mod and all things from the 60’s for the boyish, neat youthful look

ie. feminine meets tomboy, short shifts, masculine looks, tailored trousers with

girly tops and accessories

Cosmic Couture for sexy, curvy silhouettes where the waist and cleavage are

a must, with ruching, rich textures and lux fabrics. Use glamour and decadent embellishments to show off your body shape.

Petite Cosmic Couture for the more girly youthful shape.  Do the above with

lighter fabrics, prettier embellishments, smaller accessories – keeping the very

feminine, pretty look.

Black isn’t strictly a colour.  You could dare choose something else!

If you are fair and light eyed how about turquoise or violet?

if you are auburn haired you could try bronze, peacock, or gold.

If you are dark haired and have smokey eyes try damson, berry colours.

Whatever you choose remember you are beautiful and unique, so enjoy it!
