beautiful & modest

Contrary to popular belief amongst the Hollywood crowd, it is possible to be beautiful and modest at the same time. Take the lovely Scarlett Johansson, for example. She looks absolutely stunning in Dolce & Gabanna (on the left), and simple, yet elegant in Prada (right). And while I'm not too sure about the bright red lipstick paired with a peach skirt, I do know that her look is soft, feminine, and very old-hollywood glamorious (think Ingrid Bergman a la Casablanca). But enough about my opinion.

What do you think?

It's nice to see someone without seeing ALL of them. Way to go.

In the pic to the left she reminds me of Kate Winselet.(AKA you) And the pic to the right.... I love the dress.....I can't help but notice how thin she is. A rule of thumb for me is when the head looks not portioned to the body.

But, thank you so much for posting this! I was recently talking to Dan about what to wear to his 10 year high school reunion next summer. Maybe if I find this one??? Discounted knock off...here I come! :)

Amen.

And it's not just because I think the 30s-50s were the pinnacle of female fashion.

I agree
You don't have to show your goods to be sexy, classy is always better in my book.
