A week or so ago SIA posted these photos of Sandra B & asked for opinions.
A dialogue ensued as follows:
Reader X: Love Sandy but this dress is just not doing it for me
Reader Z: Love this colour on her
Reader A: Does the fabric look a bit cheap?
Reader B: She looks amazing. Why so picky?
At that point, I replied that I would elaborate the following
SIA: I see a few things wrong with this one...will explain tomorrow.
Reader C: Umm what? Hottest 49yo I've seen this week, give the poor bitch a break!
Facebook hid Person C's comment & Person C continued
with more colourful language which Facebook also hid.
Person C has since stopped reading SIA's page and I
wouldnt expect them to come back to
read the page/this blog as that would be opening up old
wounds for them.
For everyone else though, here are SIA's thoughts on
Sandra Bullock's colouring is such that she looks BEST in
COOL colours. These are colours with blue undertones.
She looks WORST in WARM colours. These are colours
with YELLOW undertones.
Best? This means colour in her cheeks, blemishes reduced,
looks well rested.
Worst? This means under eye circles enhanced, blemishes
magnified, washed out, pale, jaundiced.
I have come to this conclusion by studying many many
photos of her in various colours. So even with varying
lighting, varying make up & varying backgrounds, the
conclusion is pretty consistent & easy to spot.
So she looks better with silver near her face compared to
Now lets look at reds....
She looks better in bluey reds rather than orangey reds.
Blue reds include rose red, burgendy or rasberry.
|This is burgendy & this was a US Vogue cover.|
|This is orangey-red.|
& George Clooney
|This one is hard to pick despite all the google photos. |
My calculated guess is that its bluey-red.
Even though its not burgendy, its still a COOL shade. But only just.
|This is orangey red.|
|This was a Vogue US cover. Its Narciso Rodriguez & |
the red is definitely blue-red.
|This is also a bluey red. |
Or a bluey-rose red.
its not a good shade for red heads (who tend to have warm
complexions). But this shade is perfect for cool toned
complexions like Sandra's.
