Has Hillary been reading my e-book – Tweak Your Chic Mother of the Bride?
Quite possibly, because she looked fabulous at Chelsea’s wedding!
I loved her choices. The sea-foam green kaftan she wore to the rehearsal dinner was feminine, chic and ethereal. It was such a breath of fresh air to see her out of those pants and into something pretty and stylish.
Hillary’s raspberry Mother of the Bride gown was rich, but still soft..truly magnificent on her. The color made her complexion look creamy and angelic and that soft wavy hair….well, it only added to that classical Grecian goddess look. It looked like it was gently blowing in the breeze.
A lesson to remember here… Don’t have stiff looking hair. It will age you.
Now back to her dress choice–It really goes to show you that if you wear your wow colors (in clothing and make-up), you will shine. Hillary is a summer – ash hair and cool skin and the colors she chose were perfect for her.
A wrong choice would have been to wear warm shades instead of cool. For example, it would have been a mistake to wear a grass-green dress ( grass-green is warm – it has yellow in it), instead of the cool sea-foam green.
It would have also been a mistake to choose a mother of the bride dress in a bright, clear, poppy (orangey red) vs. the muted cool raspberry red. But Hillary got it right!
