Age Appropriate….

Gwyneth Paltrow for Harpers Bazaar 2012

I have a bee in my bonnet today due to a recent article in the LA Times “Image” section on Sunday. There it was in black and white on page 2 … slamming Gwyneth Paltrow on her choice of apparel during her recent book tour in LA.

 Seems that the peeps at “Image” feel that Ms. Paltrow wears her skirts and hot pants  a bit to short for a woman “her age.” At the end of the article the author asked for our thoughts. Well, I am so glad you did because I have a few myself on the matter.  If I may quote my  darling Mother (who is a fashion maven in her own right) “Good taste NEVER goes out of style.”  Funny, Mom never put any age constraints on that mantra.  I would like to add that I think Ms. Paltrow looks smashing and may even eclipse her look of 15 years earlier when she won her Academy Award.

Gwyneth and many of her contemporaries look great in their 40’s and 50’s. There are women in their 20’s without legs and arms as toned as Gwyneth’s. It’s no mistake that she works her but off(-literally) for her figure so why not show your best assets in the most tasteful manner.I have always believed that every woman needs good judgement and a great mirror when getting dressed -no matter what her age.

Mother was right: Good taste never goes out of style.

Zuhair Murad aka My Latest Fashion Crush!

Zuhair Murad at Fashion Week!
Zuhair Murad at Fashion Week!

O.K. so I admit I have a very hunky husband! But I must confess I have a HUGE crush if only of the” fashionable kind” on Designer Zuhair Murad. Remember having crushes in Jr. High and you would write said crushes name in your notebook over and over again-well let me tell you Zuhair is not easy to write endlessly, but one look at his work and you my dear will be scribbling that very name at warp speed too!! 

I first came across a Zuhair Murad creation on the darling and beautiful Julianne Hough see post (gotoglamourgirl.com April 8, 2009) then again on Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Williams, Kellie Pickler, and Carrie Underwood. Boy this guy gets around! But then again, I am suspecting he is going to be the new darling of the Red Carpet very,very soon. He is closing in on the Valentino’s, Oscar de le Renta’s, Ellie Saab’s and Carolina Herrera’s of the Red Carpet.

 

Mr. Zuhair Murad, is a Beirut based Lebanese fashion designer who opened his first Atelier in Beirut in 1995. He currently has boutiques in Beirut and Paris with lines including haute couture (the very pricey “one of a kind creations” mostly worn by celebrities and coveted by their stylists), ready to wear (p.s. a line of prom gowns for Fall 09), accessories and eyewear.  His creations are known for their sensational colors, extraordinary fabrics, and flattering fit on the female form. Many fashion reviewers state that Mr. Zuhair Murad’s creations are reminiscent of Egyptian Princesses, (if that’s the case -the first one in line to grab their charcoal liquid liner wins). Sorry about that last comment-I sound like a silly school girl with a crush…    

 

 All I can say is Mr. Murad- I’m in Love!
