docere autem mulieri non permitto neque dominari in virum sed esse in silentio
As opposed to when...? Does she usually wear a bikini for her meetings with world leaders or what?I don't think I've ever seen Kate wear anything but clothes that are quite modest.
Well, HJW probably means this.AM
So, that was 2002 (9 years ago), when she was in college, and she hasn't worn anything like that publicly since. I guess I don't understand the insinuation that her modest dresses are the exception rather than the rule.
That suit looks like it belongs, briefly, on a backup dancer in an Adam Ant video. It looks like something a person could have bought in a Haight Street boutique circa 1983 and worn to an art school party with fishnets and an ironic cocktail hat over a black lace camisole. You can't be serious, Miss White. The suit is tacky and the color doesn't suit her. You have such good taste! Were you trying to be charitable or something? What on earth for? - Karen
On the contrary, the color suits her very well. She has cool white skin and very dark hair, which means that she can wear black, pure white, icy cool colors such as pale, icy pink or blue, or any icy, clear, pale color. And she can wear clear, strong colors such as royal purple, royal blue, lemon yellow, forest green, and this red and black. Her coloring is the only coloring that can wear black. For someone whose coloring is softer, with less contrast between hair and skin, wearing black near the face casts dark shadows on the neck and cheeks, and all the makeup in the world will not cover them. These colors suit her very well. I turn green with envy.
It doesn't work that way, Louise. Just because some system that some home ec lady came up with in the 30s and some other home ec lady made a lot of money with in the 80s *says* she should look good in that red doesn't *make* her look good in that red because *nobody* looks good in that red unless they're Billy Idol's wife wearing a costume.Plus it doesn't even freaking fit her. - Karen
ROFLMAO, Dana Carvey's Church Lady should be put on to this wonderful post and its comments.YOU GO GIRLS !!!
Conversely, Karen, just because *you* say that no one can look good in that (In my opinion lovely and rich) shade of red, doesn't mean it's true.I also also think the dress is cut and tailored quite well.
The claws are out!
Well, it's a matter of clothes, Anonymous. We all have to stand for something in this grim and weary world.Also Karen, sorry if I was a bitch. De gustibus and all that.
Karen,Not all reds are created equal, as not all greens, yellows, and blues are created equal. You are right about some lady making a lot of money from understanding color. Good for her. More power to her. She sure saved me a bunch of money in my choice of colors. All those gorgeous but frightfully expensive "little black dresses" that I love but make me look as if I'm at death's door-- The scheme even works in my gardens, keeping the colors cool or warm. It really does work if you know how to use it.P.S. I saw no claws, anonymous.
