Age before beauty: time to grow old gracefully

Is the cloned-youth look favoured by many celebrities really that attractive, or has the time come to grow old gracefully?

Celebrities, a word of warning: it’s not the bitter old hackettes writing about your grey hair or your wrinkles, or how your arms are looking a little lardy these days, you need to fear; it’s the comments from “normal” readers online.
Thus it was for poor Nicole Kidman, who bravely let her rather beautiful silver-grey hairs blend naturally into her blond locks — and didn’t care that the red-carpet paparazzi were there to zoom in on the offending/empowering strands. But for the hundreds of internet comments applauding or decrying the grey, there are hundreds more criticising her “scary doll”, “wax dummy” face. The irony of Nicole, so known for her frozen face, suddenly letting her dye job go raised an interesting question: what’s the properly elegant way to age now?
Today, we are surrounded by contradictory images of preternaturally young women. This month’s cover of the new American anti-ageing magazine New Beauty features a strangely plasticised image of Christie Brinkley as a role model for “ageless beauty” for women in their fifties. Alongside is Jennifer Aniston — the example of how we should be looking in our thirties. Brooke Shields is the forties pin-up. There’s just one problem: they all look the same. Looking young at any age? This isn’t beauty, it’s cloning.
Celebrities are not the only ones to fall prey to the cloned-youth look. The freakometer is at breaking point on the fashion circuit too, with editors, who, frankly, should know better, overdoing it on the weird-surgery front. Age has not so much withered them as puffed them up and given their skin a kind of post-shingles texture. The “work” to make them look younger, prettier and fresher is in fact having the reverse effect; instead, they are the waxworks that escaped from Madame Tussauds.

“It’s not surgery madness,” says Dr Sherrell Aston, arguably New York’s best plastic surgeon. “It’s actually injectible madness. It’s impossible to overemphasise this point.” Aston blames the front-row freakshow on an unspoken battle for business between dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
“The media has been pushing the concept of the nonsurgical facelift, done by doctors who don’t offer surgery. They’ll say, ‘You don’t need a facelift, you just need some fillers in your cheeks to replace the volume that has sagged, and injections in the naso-labial folds to get rid of the lines that run from nose to mouth, and more injections along the jaw line.’ The result is a lady in a size-four dress with a face that’s round, full, tight, shiny and abnormal. They get broken capillaries and scarring where they’ve had too many injections, and they can’t get back to where they started.”
He would say that, though, wouldn’t he, being a plastic surgeon? “Doing injectibles would definitely be much easier work for me,” he answers. “But some women are having so many, they’re spending as much money in the long term as they would on a facelift, and the sad thing is their faces will never be the same again.” Quite why they keep going back for more is a mystery. “I’m dumbfounded,” he says.
“I call it fillorexia,” says one A-list make-up artist who asked not to be named. “I’ll be making up a face that I haven’t seen in a couple of years, and I’ll notice that the lips are weirdly plumped up, bigger than they were the last time we met. The skin is sometimes raised around the cheekbones, bumpy around the mouth, with a glassy finish. But I can’t name names because stars don’t want to admit they have made a mistake and had too much, or that she isn’t 100% naturally beautiful, even though it’s so obvious. It’s the elephant in the room.”
Perhaps what we really need to do is rethink our attitudes to ageing. I know: easier said than done, but a cultural shift may be on its way. Next month, Skin Deep, Opera North’s eagerly anticipated operetta about cosmetic surgery opens. It is a satire on our obsession with celebrity culture and cosmetic surgery, penned by the comedy writer Armando Iannucci — who created Steve Coogan’s masterpiece, Knowing Me, Knowing You — with music by David Sawer. The surgery is there for comedic value, but the moral is that, really, it’s great to have wonky cheeks or hairy arms: at some point we have to accept who we are. “There’s so much pressure on us to look young, and I wonder if this will change with the credit crunch, as it’s an expensive business,” says Iannucci. “It’s a never-ending process. You start with a facelift, but then you discover your wrists and hands need doing, because suddenly they look old. You end up looking like Michael Jackson in a blender. The more you try to make yourself look young, the older you look.”
Opera North’s own survey revealed a worrying trend — that the surgery obsession has spread to non-celebrities. And we should be worried. A shocking one in four of the 2,000 men who were asked said they would like their wives to have some kind of cosmetic surgery, with a staggering 19% saying they thought it could save their marriage. My own suspicion is that women, had they been asked, might have liked to see those same husbands get their potbellies repotted, their saggy arses lifted (preferably far away and overseas) and their lips permanently sealed. Which is probably why they weren’t asked.
Quit while you’re ahead. Lulu, who is now 60, has sworn she won’t touch Botox again and stays away from invasive procedures generally. “I used to see platypus lips only in Beverly Hills, but now they are everywhere, and it certainly doesn’t make women look young,” she says.

What to Wear If You're Boy-Shaped

In many ways you've got it made. Your body is one long, slim line, without much difference between the width of your chest and width of your hips. Since this is the current ideal shape for models, designer clothes are literally made for your type of figure. Most styles of pants and skirts will fit you just fine. Your biggest potential pitfall is the lack of a defined middle. Without a curvy chest or curvy hips to highlight your waist, you run the risk of looking boyish rather than feminine. To flatter your figure, look for pieces that create a more womanly shape.

Can't Miss Pieces
Wrap tops: These shirts can create the impression of a more curvaceous upper body. The
V-neck on top gives the illusion of curves, and the tied-together waist draws attention to your midsection.
Straight-leg pants: Not all women can get away with these, so take advantage! The straight line of the pants will highlight your lean legs.

Slim, feminine suits:
Pair a fitted jacket with a body-skimming skirt or pair of pants and you'll look razor-sharp. Just make sure the jacket has a defined waist or belt to give you some shape.Two-piece bathing suits: Whether it's a string bikini or a sporty tankini is up to you. Your long, straight torso will look even straighter in a one-piece bathing suit; a two-piece will give you more feminine lines.

Unflattering "Don'ts"Skip It:
Boxy coats: Stay away from unstructured trench coats or double-breasted jackets. Their square lines will overpower your slender shape completely. Instead, choose a coat with a belt and/or a clearly defined waist.
Straight shift dresses: A dress that hangs down straight from shoulders to knees can make you look like one big rectangle. Look for dresses that are tapered at the waist.
Stretch jeans: If you don't have much butt to begin with, the spandex will flatten what little you have. Stick with regular cotton jeans.

Image is about creating a look that positively influences others' perceptions, is suitable for the situation and reflectsyour personality. If you're wearing a designer suit, you may look fabulous but feel completely false. Or, you might be totally comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, but be underdress for a meeting where the expectation is business casual attire.
So how does one begin to develop such a style? At Liria Image And Fashion Strategies, clients begin by completing an image assessment form which help to determine your preference.
The form helps individuals evaluate their wardrobe needs based on their lifestyle, personality, personal coloring and build. "Are you sporty or traditional, or are you more dramatic in your lifestyle?"


Like it or not, people form their opinion about our talents, our intelligence and countless other aspects of our personality based on the IMAGE we projet.

Holiday Shopping

"Always plan ahead. If possible make a list of those whom you'ld like to gift to.Don't settle for the first one you see shopp around, look for the real bargains. This time of year with the economy every one wants to sell so Do Not be afraid to make an offer."

Casual day...

Simple and elegant classic modern dress. So easy to make an outfit with only 2 constractive colors like black and white. Make this a nice outfit for a casual day with your friends. Or just to stroll at the mall.
" This should be part of every woman's wardrobe."

From simple to SENSATIONAL...or DISASTER...

"Sometimes less is more." or "None or too little is not good." Ever heard of this expressions. Most of us out there are what i call fashion victims. I know you seen those ladies that look like they have a heavy cream on their faces, thinking they look good. When in reality is not true.Their face has one orangy color and their neck another color.

Then we have those who don't use makeup at all. "hey don't get me wrong I like all natural"
but there's something call natural makeup, even echo friendly. pleasy enhance your beauty with just a little glims of magic.

What is IMAGE and why it is important?

Image is everything. Doesn't matter what you or any one say. Now days if you don't present the best of you not just in talent but in the superficial look you may be placing yourself in a spot, where you may lose or not get the job, better promotion or that special someone. That first impression of you is always the most important one. That's the one which will help you be and feel more secure and successful in your live.
