Master retoucher and former Ford model Sharon Daniels unveils what really is behind the photo that you see and why. –S.H.How Much to Retouch in Advertising and Media… and Why!It’s no secret that photo retouching is essential to all media platforms. It can lure us in emotionally to a given product or subject and in turn serves to increase sales for advertisers.

Oscar Dress Red Carpet Review

Oscar Dress Red Carpet ReviewFashion’s Best, Worst, and Plenty in the Middle on the Academy Awards Red Carpet. It’s the morning after and which star wore the most memorable Oscar Dress?Truth be told, less is more when it comes to the perfect Oscar dress unless you aim to make a big bold statement on the red carpet.It’s unfortunate that so many stylists got the memo on frothy dresses with full skirts and plenty of trains because by the end of the evening it was almost impossible to tell each ‘top of the wedding cake’ dress from the next. But I do know that their knock-offs will be coming to a prom near you.medium>> Don’t miss OSCAR Fashion Red Carpet PhotosThat said, we’re going to talk about the major fashion statement making risk takers, the queens of timeless chic.

Runway Review: Menswear, best of the classics fall 2010, Milan & Paris

“With the end of the last decade’s heady maximalism behind us, and the dawn of a new era upon us with a loud call being heard for palette cleansing essentials in a time when the economy ain’t so pretty, many are looking for easy, fuss-free propositions that are not only right for the times, but right for the future even.The day of instantly recognizable runway pieces is long gone and many venerable labels are looking back at not only their own heritages, but also the fundamentals of a smart wardrobe.>> See Runway Review: Menswear, best of cool for fall 2010The urban warrior, the svelte mod, the 80′s electro playboy and the avant-garde techy futuro man we’ve seen many times around throughout the last decade have all taken a backseat (but that’s not to say things are about to get too classic). In his place comes a clever use of house signatures for Fall/Winter 2010 that epitomize easy sophistication from institutions that you can always turn to for guaranteed quality.>> See Fall 2010 Fashion Show Photo GalleriesFour stand-out collections with “investment” potential & forward thinking clarity in this latest menswear movement were Giorgio Armani, Dries Van Noten, Lanvin & Prada.”

The new bling has a gritty, offhanded elegance reminiscent of rock candy or shattered glass.What’s modern is not the cheap trick sparkly bling many of us associate with pave phone cases, cloyingly cute crystal encrusted novelty doodads, or glittering from a too tight T-shirt. Crystals now have an irregularity to them that looks fresh.
