The Knowledge: How to be stylish in your forties, by Monica Bellucci

ImageThe right attitude
When you are in your forties it’s more important to be sensual than sexy. Sexy is a word that is right for very young girls; as you get older you should focus on being elegant. The first thing to get right is your attitude. Of course, every woman has her own style, but the best way to carry that style is with confidence.

Create a bold look
When you’re young you can do so many crazy things with your make-up. As you get older you’re constantly told to wear less make-up, which I think is stupid. I know a woman who is over 50 and has crazy bright make-up with crazy blonde hair, but is so pretty and funny with it. You should be brave with your make-up. I love red lipstick, especially when I’m under the spotlight. Alternatively, I like dark eyes with natural lipstick. I like to be pretty for myself

Keep it simple
Even if you’re popping out to buy some bread and just wearing jeans and a T-shirt, buy the right ones for your shape. Pure and simple lines are very flattering in clothing, especially for me as my body’s curvy. As long as you have the basic shape right, then you can change colours and patterns. You need to wear clothes you feel strong in – you want to wear the dress(whatever backless prom dress,purple evening dress,ect), not have the dress wear you.

The hue for you
For my work I have to be careful about what I eat, which is a sacrifice, because sometimes I love to eat. In my wardrobe there’s a lot of black. I love black because it’s very forgiving.

Don’t be a slave to trends
I’m not a fashion victim. You can follow trends if you like, but it’s much nicer to mix things up and maybe take two completely different looks and merge them together. It’s good if a trend is flexible. You should know the looks that suit you. Now when I shop I’m the quickest woman in the world. I know exactly what I want and am in and out of the shops in half an hour.

Be yourself
You don’t have to fit one mould to be stylish in your forties. I like simple, elegant things, but it all depends on your attitude and character. For me, the problem with fashion sometimes is that they want to create a law where everybody is the same. I do not like perfection. It is so boring. Just walk tall and be confident in who you are – style will then come naturally.

Backless Wedding Dresses – the Back is the New Cleavage?

ImageBackless Wedding dresses will be the key trend for summer 2012. The famous backless wedding dress of all time is the white halter dress worn by Marilyn Monroe. It seems that the back is the new cleavage ! Hooray say most of us!

The backless wedding dress is more alluring and it’s a welcome evening trend for women who worry about their body shape and their lack of ample cleavage. Showing off a nice back is much better than showing off too much bust in a low cut top. Small curves can look more shapely and feminine just by wearing this style.

You have the opportunity to wear this dress in a short or long style, depending on your body shape or preferences, and you will still ooze red carpet glamour. There is also the opportunity to be daring and opt for a low swooping back or to be more modest and only show a glimpse of your back. There are numerous options catering for all shapes, sizes and preferred styles.

Many people comment that backless wedding dress look formal, elegant and it’s striking when a women seems to be wearing a modest high neck dress then turns round to reveal a sexy back.

The back is a sensual part of your body so if your going to show it off at a party or prom then you want your skin to be in tip top condition. It’s never to early to start preparing your skin. Just stick to a routine like gentle scrubbing and moisturising – your back will be radiant and you’ll be proud to flaunt it.
