US Vogue Cover: January 2007 Picturing Angelina Jolie
- Color choice: With a persona as glamorous as this, what other choice is there but red? Note that the red here is the "little to the dark, without going burgundy" I mentioned in my recent post Steps to Successfully Wearing Red & Black, a wonderful red for those with deeper coloring.
- Visual weight: Clearly the dress is of a light-weight fabric. I am confident that if it were not so, we would see more of the actress's hair. Adjusting the volume of one's hair is the primary way of adapting to fabric weight.
- Taut vs drapy: Generally speaking, taut fabrics are congruent with the hardness of visible bone structure, drapy with soft roundedness. Pictured is an example of a slender person of soft roundness. Agreed?

BTW, you could buy me a subscription to Vogue for pretty much less than the price of a tee-shirt.
