Ralph Lauren was the keynote speaker at a conference I produced for Women’s Wear Daily about 15 years ago. He came to the stage in a slouchy, double-breasted, navy blue suit that overpowered his slight frame, and his feet were dressed in espadrilles that looked silly, as far as I was concerned.
But who was I to critique his style? He’s Ralph Lauren. If he wears it, it’s got to be cool. Ummmm. No.
One of my former best friends, who is beautiful, loved Chanel, but she wore so much Chanel at once that she looked like a human C. It was funny and it took all the attention from her face.
Another FOF I know has a great body and hair but treats them both as if she’s Sweet Sixteen. Jeans too tight. Hair too long and too blond. Despite her hair and bod, the only thing that’s showing is something she does want to show: Her age.
