“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.” ~ Marilyn Monroe
Being glamorous in SL is a lot easier in SL than RL because there are so many with a glamorous vision to give us beauty. Mami Jewell recently created this gorgeous dress with her unique lush satin textures and shaping. She combines a beautiful off-the-shoulder dress with translucent flexi prims (notice how they don’t cast a shadow) to create a dress with true old-fashioned glamour. Worn with AvaGardner Kungler’s newest jewelry set, inspired by the colors of Brazilian carnival, and accessorized with a beaded clutch from Yula Finesmith, the look is drop dead gorgeous.
Chandra Masala is showing two new lines at the Skin Fair 2014. The Meenakshi skin comes in 5 tones with eyebrow variations, 6 lipsticks and 6 eyeshadows, and even an optional bindi plus cleavage and all the standard appliers. Chandra has touched this skin with her own spiciness and added elegant touches such as well-groomed, shapely brows (that can be altered quite drastically with her included bald heads.) Her skin is devastatingly elegant with an underlying sexiness. Deep dark brown eyes from Lano Ling (and brown eyes are not easy to pull off in SL) make the skin even more beautiful. I have worn one of Mirja Mills’ elegant up-dos, a gorgeous variation on the French twist, dramatically swept up and over.
“Some day the laws of glamour must be discovered, because they are so important that the world would be wiser now if Sir Isaac Newton had been hit on the head, not by an apple, but by a young lady.” ~ Booth Tarkington
