Seldom do styles come back so fervently that they are almost indistinguishable. Above are photos taken of Sophia Loren circa the 1960's and Iman. Both are strikingly beautiful, and both sport the kind of cut that most women would love to have. This particular style is not about sleek and chic, instead it is about volume, movement and texture. I often get asked "what are the current trends?". This is a question which I answer honestly each and every time because the answer is that the "trend" is to do what works best for you, what you feel comfortable in and ultimately something you can work with at home. It has to make you feel beautiful. The sheer amount of years between when these 2 photos were taken should be a testament to that philosophy. Ideas change, which probably influences our sense of fashion and beauty, but take one look at these images captured in time and you begin to realize that trends and fashion are more related to the way we perceive ourselves and the world in which we live, then they are to notions associated with different time periods. This timeless approach to beauty has guided me well through out my career and I believe should be the standard applied to the daunting question of what is the trend.
