WOMEN

Dressing for your Portrait of Success... Keep Things Simple!

HAIR- DO NOT TRY OUT A NEW HAIRSTYLE FOR YOUR PORTRAIT.
Instead wear it as you ususally do. If you wear it loose sometimes and pulled back other times, we can photograph it both ways.

Eyebrows (the archway to the soul)- The face is the image, but the eyebrows-the frame!: See what Damone Roberts has to say and  Get that polished look. (click this link)

CLOTHING- Avoid plaids, stripes or patterns. Wear tailored or crew necklines in soft pastels. Avoid fussy collars, although a scarf is acceptable. REQUEST OUR FREE INFO GUIDE ON HOW TO WEAR A SCARF. This will tell you how to fold it for the 3 ways you can choose to wear it as; as a triangle, bias and oblong. Find out how to create a long slimming line or how to wear those Italian silks in the Classic Continental way! Turtlenecks and V-necks are flattering provided that neither is exaggerated in style. Long sleeves are essential as bare arms call too much attention to themselves. COLOR PORTRAITS- avoid light colors that are flesh toned, e.g. beige, tan, peach, pink, white, and yellow. A contemporary business suit in medium to dark tones of brown, rust, burgundy, black, charcoal or navy works best.

Feb.11, 2011 Fashion Alert: NEW YORK - "Project Runway" host Tim Gunn and actresses Taraji Henson and Olivia Wilde have a "no fur" message for designers showing collections at New York Fashion Week. "I'm on a campaign to get as many fashion designers as possible to stop using it," said Gunn, chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne. " I'd just like to sit with them and have a talk and ask, 'Is it really necessary?'"The three appeared Thursday night at Stella McCartney's boutique with representatives of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. McCartney is a longtime supporter of animal rights and doesn't use leather or fur in her designs.

Gunn said he wants both fashion designers and consumers to be informed about decisions they're making when creating and buying clothing.Henson, a 2009 Academy Award nominee, strikes a sultry, nearly naked pose in the latest ad for PETA's "Fur? I'd Rather Go Naked" campaign.

"There are other products we can use," she said.

MEN

Dressing for your Portrait of Success...Crisp Collar and Bold Tie a MUST!

HAIR- Have hair cut about one full week before the session...no sooner!

FACE- Make sure you shave just prior to the session. (Schedule a morning session.)

CLOTHING -A dark business suit with or without a vest. No double-breasted please. A tie will add dignity to your statement of character, so try to choose a silk one having bold graphic shapes like geometric grids or patterns. This is not the time for paisley. Look into the beautiful "seven-fold ties" for stunning styles. REMEMBER- the effectiveness of the entire portrait can be sabotaged with the wrong choice, so please bring a small selection with you if you are not sure.
