DO I HAVE A PEAR SHAPE BODY  WHAT SHAPE AM I?

ACADEMY AWARDS 2014 FASHION BORING

Fashion Boring.  Bland, Safe and as expected. You have no doubt seen, heard, read something or maybe even a lot about the fashion stakes at the 2014, 86th annual Academy Awards.  Most of the reports have given all the ‘A listers’ ‘raving’ reviews for their looks.   We’re not going to disagree, they all looked polished and perfect, exactly as we expect.  Millions of dollars would have been spent on exquisite gowns, accessories, hair and make up.  So we do expect some wonderful looks.   The gowns were not dissimilar to those seen in previous years.  We felt it was all quite bland; with pastels, beige upon beige, off white, some red, green navy, black and blue.
