What did you think of Brad and Angelina’s His and Her tuxedos at Sunday’s BAFTAs in London?
Personally, I think Angelina always looks sexy without even trying. She can’t help it. Even in a tux. Would you, could you… do a tux yourself?
Of course you can! Here are four things to keep in mind:
Keep It Feminine:
You are not trying to look like one of the guys…you don’t want to make the mistake of looking like you hit up your local tuxedo rental place and got the suit closest to your size. Let some feminine touches come through. The unbuttoned blouse. The tie left undone. The slim cut trousers and fitted jacket. Sexy, classic black heels. Subtle and yet, so powerful. Oh yes, there’s definitely a woman under that suit!
Less Is More:
Angelina wore simple diamond studs and an elegant diamond bracelet. That’s it. That works. No need to pile on the jewels, no need for flashy gems. A black envelope or clutch style bag would be the perfect way to finish the look. Let the tux do the heavy lifting.
Hair & Makeup Should Be Simple:
Hair and makeup should not be overdone. Angelina’s makeup is understated and features a smokey eye and her signature nude lip. Her hair is long, loose and natural looking. No fancy updo or red lip to distract us from the elegant ensemble.
Confidence Is Key:
This looks is all about what’s INSIDE. Having the guts to go for it is what makes this look so sultry. Make it work for you. Unleash your inner goddess and let her shine!
