I adore Julianne Moore, as an actress and as a great beauty. She's an interesting Autumn; her coloring's warm, deep, vivid and delicate at the same time. When she gets it right - which is often - she's startlingly lovely:
Another example of an Autumn existing on a different plane than her garment was Jennifer Lopez.
Surely you've seen how gloriously golden this Autumn girl can look! -
Eva Longoria was a let-down. And not because Deep Autumns can't wear black. After all, the hair often has black tones. But Deep Autumns need contrast, and they certainly need some warmth. This look provides neither.
Here's Eva looking more like herself in a dramatic, warm and powerful color:
(But is the blush a bit too orange? Methinks so...)
Of course I couldn't spare Angelina, having devoted an entire blog post to convincing everyone that she's a Soft Autumn.
Now, to see what I'm seeing in this pic, you have to remind yourself that Angelina is incredibly, amazingly beautiful, and will never, ever look truly bad in anything. Ever. So when you see her here and think "She looks pretty good!" - well, of course she does. But I don't think it's her best.
In this case, I feel strongly that the gown's much brighter than she is. A Soft should be able to glow with subtle luminosity in the correct soft color. Here, we notice the shine of the dress much more than we notice any shine from Angie.
For a green that balances her instead of outshining her, how about this?
On a very, very happy note, I was delighted to see this on the GG red carpet:
Note that Warm and Deep Autumns won't be flattered by this kind of monochromatic look. On a Soft Autumn, though, it can be heavenly.
And for one more Soft Autumn who got it right, check out Kelly MacDonald.
I couldn't find good examples of Warm and Deep Autumns who nailed it, sorry to say. But that could just be my natural Soft Autumn bias noticing my SA ladies more. If you spotted some great WAs and DAs at the GGs, please share them with me. If I agree, I'll put them up.
