A "Hitchcock Blonde"

So we were reading an InStyle magazine this morning and we came across an article called "What's Your Perfect Color?"  In the section on red, there was this transfixing bit: "'Striking shades, such as true red, really frame women with this coloring, like Gwyneth Paltrow,' says designer Michael Kors, who dubs these cool types with flaxen hair, light eyes, and porcelain skin 'Hitchcock blondes.' Kors adds, 'Muted tones wash them out.'

And of course, this was illustrated with a really stunning photo of Gwyneth in a red dress... Well! On seeing that, Yren did not care to lose any time transforming herself into a Hitchcock blonde! She reminded me that has light eyes, and a flaxen wig that was a present from Aneemal, and a siren red dress from Miss Orchid...."And as for porcelain skin--I ask you! Skin doesn't get any more porcelain than mine!" So we dressed her up and put on lipstick the same color as Gwyneth is wearing. It's rather cold for posing this morning  but Miss Yren did not complain--just another sacrifice for beauty.

We dedicate this photo shoot to Monika Viktoria, who especially likes Yren's blonde hair and who permitted Miss Orchid to create this dress, thus making Yren's Hitchcock Blonde look possible.

PS. And did we check out the rest of the article to see which other perfect colors Yren can wear? We did indeed. Periwinkle was one; also, if she is wearing her dark wig, violet; or her red wig, olive, emerald, or forest green. Knowing that, we're probably going to be exploring these ideas quite soon! And noticing what else Gwyneth Paltrow wears. ;-)

Yren thanks you for the compliments while blushing prettily.

The first pic was taken at my son's clubhouse in the backyard. :-) Not much of the summer yard things are out yet, so Yren has to take her seat wherever she can find one! ~Ruth

Yren looks amazing as a hitchcock blonde, and I LOVE the look and photographs... especially next to that timber clubhouse, it looks very very professional, right out of a glossy mag.

Looks like you two are having fun - poor fern's had her head covered in gladwrap whilst I make a new wig.....

Aww, don't you feel sorry for her when her head's all covered up? Yren looks so pathetic in that situation too. But, my won't Miss Fern adore having a new wig to look gorgeous in! ~Ruth

Yup... I took a progress shot once whilst I was making her the green wig, but it looked so horrendous, like she was a burns victim or all her hair was falling out, it was so disturbing I never posted it!!!! She's all better now, prancing about with her oversized wig!
