Pros And Cons: Kitty Heels

  1. They are a great example of old Hollywood vintage fashion. British Actress Audrey Hepburn popularised these shoes in the 1950s.

2. They are also great shoes for tall women who do not want too add to much height to their frame. Actresses like Uma Thurman, for example, come to mind. At 6,0 foot I can’t imagine why she would want to look any taller!

  1. They are even great for short to medium height people (like me) who like their height the way it is. American Actress Reese Witherspoon is a great example of a short person. She's only 5 foot 1!!!

    4. They are practical. If you wanted to pop down to your local super market, shopping mall or even to work you don’t have to worry about backache or twisting your ankle. Hazel Blears an aide to British Prime Minister David Cameron is a great example of what can go wrong with  sky scrapper heels!

5. You can buy these shoes in any colour, shape or size. 

 6. You can wear them during the day or at night. 

 7. They range from affordable to expensive so it doesn't matter what your prize range is you can afford them.  For example, you can buy Kitten Heels from New Look for just £15.99. This price contrasts to Gucci's prices that start from around £200 pounds plus. 

8. They are bang on trend for spring 2011!

2. Watch out for the cracks in the pavement the heel can still easily snap!

January Jones Brings Betty Draper to Life in Marie Claire Photoshoot.

January Jones as Betty Draper in AMC's 'Mad Men'.

January Jones in Marie Claire May 2011 UK Edition. 

Recently, stunning and picture perfect Mad Men actress January Jones, has brought her fictional character Betty Draper to life,  for the May 2011 Marie Claire UK Edition photo shoot. During the shoot she wowed the photographer with her high cheekbones, effortless soft doll like facial features and her never ending limbs.
For those of you who do not know who Betty Draper is I will give you a quick summary. Betty Draper is a fictional 1960s suburban housewife. The character Betty Draper is known for her iconic fashion sense and portrays how the common housewife lived during that era. Betty Draper has often been compared to old Hollywood actresses such as Grace Kelly.

Anyway, January Jones really embodied her character Betty Draper in this perfectly styled photo shoot. The styling and the background setting gave Betty Draper a contemporary twist. In my opinion January Jones brought Betty’s innocence, naivety and a touch of her icy cold personality to the shoot. This is illustrated in Jones' body language and facial expressions. Furthermore, the make up and hair styling is classic Betty Draper style therefore, bringing old holly wood back to life. 

The clothing is what I love most about this shoot! The outline of the dresses and the light silkiness of the materials makes Jones look sexy and sophisticated. Thus,  providing a touch of elegance ultimately bringing Betty Draper into the twenty first century. In addition, the nature of the vibrant and bold colours of the clothing is reminiscent of the 1970s and is currently on trend for spring 2011. 

I for one will definitely buy this copy of Marie Claire. I hope you all do.

Why Old Hollywood Romance has had such an impact on my life.

Hi I’m Pauline, I’m 20 years old and from England (yeaie the rain! I’m not kidding I actually love the rain here). I know I’m about 40 years too young to be obsessed with a decade that’s old enough to be one of my grandparents, but I just can’t help falling in love with the glamour, the drama and the lifestyle of this era.

Don’t you just love how domineering and in control the men are? How immaculate and perfectly groomed they looked? How the men always knew what to say to a woman to make her fall in love with them? How the women were always styled perfectly from head to toe? Or simply don’t you just love a happy ending? It was these factors and watching Roman Holiday starring Old Hollywood Legends Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn which made me become excited about this era.

I think I was about 15 when this love affair began. I remember catching the movie on Film 4 on a Saturday Afternoon. I also remember how blown away I was by the scenes when Peck and Hepburn were travelling around Rome doing all the things Hepburn’s character had always wanted to do but she couldn’t because she was 1st in line to inherit the throne. It was during these moments when I realised what true love is about. It is about finding a person who allows you to become the person you were always afraid to become. Although, the movie ended in a sad way it was realistic and refreshing to see two different people from different worlds experience a romantic affair that most people never find and fools like me dream of finding.

Anyway I know I’m blabbering on a bit (I tend to easily lose focus), I think the point I’m trying to make is the movie got me hooked into this era because of what old Hollywood stands for: sophistication, elegance, and romance.

 Furthermore, by watching such movies I feel a bit more in control in my life because it reminds me that there is someone out there for someone and I have always loved the idea of knowing how something ends. So I guess I love how predictable the endings are and the characters. 
I hope you have enjoyed my blog so far feel free to post comments.
