Chatting on BBC Radio Berkshire about the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot racing 2017 style and fashion rules. Having been the BBC TV fashion and style reporter from Royal Ascot races myself a few years ago and also a regular Royal Ascot Royal Enclosure attendee for many years I have watched how the fashion style rules and regulations have evolved and often now ignored
So now Royal Ascot authority has re-issued their style criteria to help maintain fashion and style standards. This year the rules include allowing a jumpsuit which must however be full length.
The last time anything as dramatic as this happened was in the ’70’s when trouser suits were allowed for the first time ever.
Is cleavage in or out?
Vogue has suggested that celebrities are now covering up.
Has the focus on cleavage moved to a having smaller breasts and wearing a plunging neckline down to the waist?
Has the focus moved to dresses with slits slashed to the thigh?
Or are shoulders and back the new erogenous zones?
Listen to my thoughts on the subject on BBC Radio London Drive time show chatting with Eddie Nestor —-
This was the makeover I did in July, for my lovely Style of Wight magazine “win a makeover” Winner Isobelle.
She and I worked together over 3 months on a diet/healthy eating regime. We looked through her wardrobe at which styles and colours worked best for her body shape and colouring, and selected those items which should go to charity as they weren’t going to be worn again. We discussed makeup, makeup brands, makeup tips and how to enhance her lips and eyebrows with clever makeup application.
During that time, I consulted with the brilliant hairdresser JoJo at Freshwater on what we wanted to achieve with a new more flattering haircut and colour for Isobelle’s face shape and skin tones.
The dress I selected for Isobelle to wear was from a selection of evening dresses to hire from Posh Frocks in Sandown, Isle of Wight. I chose this black and white evening dress for Isobelle to wear, as the wide, off the shoulder, light coloured neckline created a slimming illusion, balancing her body shape.
The large selection of dresses to buy or hire in Posh Frocks in sizes 8-24 were great value for when you need something for that special occasion. Especially when you are a curvy lady and its often difficult to find that perfect dress to buy.
Isobelle had lost 3 stone by the time of the photoshoot, and looked wonderful,
But my lifestyle and style makeovers aren’t simply for a day.
They are a life change plan to take forward, so I hope that all the hints and tips that I offered Isobelle will stay with her for the future.
