BCBG MAX AZRIA RESORT COLLECTION IS IN POUT MODE BUT YOU SHOULDN'T BE!

Stunning dress - check. Stare worthy shoes - check. A clutch that completes the outfit- check. What's the one thing that can take a perfect look and make it well not so perfect? Your face - because of the expression that you didn't even now you were making.

I've been noticing my facial default expression has been a frown or even worse a daydream stare. Okay maybe not that bad, but its not pretty.

That's why I am using these pictures to illustrate my point. BCBG Max Azria Resort 2010 is awesome to me. I adore it, but I just can't seem to love it. Why? Simply because the model seems to be in pout mode. It totally taints it, she doesn't have to smile, but she's not exactly owning the look either.

Case and Point: These two looks from Louis Vuitton Resort 2010 are a little over the top for me.... BUT.. there's no pout and there's a look in the model's eye that dares you not to love it.


Moral of the story: When you go out this weekend remember when putting your look together to not forget your face!! That the most important thing is to OWN what you're wearing, or at least pretend. It will take the look from being just adorable to flat out Awesome!

Pouting has it's place... but a smile never fails when trying to look your best.

Great post. Excellent examples.

I feel the exact same way, Alix. The pout makes it look as if they don't really want to wear what they are wearing, and that is shame, because the dresses are awesome! Especially the white one - it is stunning and perfect for summer!
