    Whether you’re a size 2, 12, or 22 there is no excuse not to look fabulous at any age! Knowing your body and what works isn’t always easy, however. Then, when the latest trends are thrown into the mix, the result can be confusing.  High fashion magazines aren’t always entirely helpful. They don’t translate into the battlefield of life.

  • How to Look Sexy and Modern? Try some well-placed slits like Eva Green in Alexander McQueen

    Eva Green an AW11 black split sleeve dress and Pre AW11 leopard print peep toe shoes by Alexander McQueen to the ‘The Rum Diary’ London

    I’ll Have What She’s Having: Streamlined and bold slits in just the right places There’s something about actress Eva Green‘s smart sexiness that reminds us of  the raw style of Italian actresses back in the 1950’s via Veneto days.
