It's more simple than you think!
If there's anything I've learned over my 12-year career as a Celebrity Stylist is that PERSONALITY counts.
Body shape does not matter. What makes you tick as a person does. We gravitate towards textures, colour, patterns, and styles that excite us. That's what makes us unique and allows our personalities to shine through. So why do we say to ourselves "I can't pull that off!".
Well, guess what - Celebrities try what they gravitate towards at photo shoots and do pull it off with the right accessories (not to mention hair and makeup) they DO own that look and the end result for the camera is confidence! If they aren't confident it does show in the photos.
If I tried to dress Jackie Gillies like Gina Liano from 'The Real Housewives of Melbourne' you'd certainly notice there's something not right straight away!
When I'm styling Asher and Kat from 'Offspring' as themselves for publicity purposes they have completely different styles. (Refer to my 'Billie Files' in earlier blogs) So I think you get where I'm coming from, BE yourself!
How often do you get your outfit wrong for the day? Suddenly the day seems to unfold in a complete tizzy! All because you left your confidence and personality at the door.
More often than not we know what features or areas of our bodies we need to focus on.
In summary 'Secrets to having STYLE like a Celebrity' -
Choose what excites you and give it a go!
Do you hair and makeup, even if it take you ten minutes.
Try pairing the right accessories and put on that fun pair of shoes you always dare to wear!
Balance your figures proportions.
Let your personality shine! Dont get caught up by mainstream shops, dare to be different.
Up the anti - give those fun clothes a go and put your own stamp on it.
Last but not least - OWN IT!
