Celebuzz: How should women like Katie Holmes with a tall and slender body type be dressing like?
Jeanne: Taller, slender ladies are really lucky that most anything works for them. Even really wild fashion works when you are blessed with these features.
Jeanne: I tend to think more classic silhouettes are great on everyone. Generally speaking, A-line skirts are the best on the bottom. This is what makes Alaia’s skirts and dresses so flattering.
Celebuzz: What are three go-to items every girl should have in their closet?
Jeanne: A beautiful white shirt worn casually with leggings or with a long black skirt for a black tie affair. Also, any sexy simple black dress, accessorized correctly, can make a fantastic frock scandalous and sensual to get a second date or demure and elegant to meet your beau’s parents. Nude pumps in suede or leather lengthen the leg with any color dress and add a chic flair to any outfit with jeans.
Jeanne: The idea that things have to be on trend. What works best is whatever looks flattering on the body and what fits your personality. That is what is so great about fashion right now. In the past everything was so homogenized. Its nice that people can wear whatever they want.
Celebuzz: What’s a trend that you hope is here to stay?
Jeanne: I love that size, shape, race, age and variety work in all areas of fashion. With the Internet, fashion has never been more democratic. Although some trends are generally accepted as “the look,” each season great style is eternal and evergreen.
Celebuzz: What are your Oscar red-carpet fashion predictions?
Jeanne: Oscars will be all about color! Everyone will want to stand out in signature shades that work best for them. Emerald green, azure blues, royal purple shades will reign on the red carpet.Simply Stylist seminar and use the discount code “celebuzz.”
