See wich star fits to R&R mummy, Romantique and Rebel.

1. Kim Novak = R&R Mummy: blonde hair, fair skin, brown eyes


Best colours: Blues, violetts, soft greens, golden beige, white.

2. Romy Schneider = Romantique: brown hair, fair skin, blue eyes


Best Colours: Apricot, mint green, pale pink, blue, pink-beige, medium shades of brown

3. Sophia Loren = Rebel: dark hair,olive skin, hazel eyes

Edith Head advice for swallow complexions is:

” Stay away from all colours that have yellow casts: yellow, yellow-beige, orange-red, yellow-browns, gold and tan – regardless of the other colours in your picture (eyes and hair). Light colours like pastels and white are good because they tend to make you look tan rather than yellowish. You can wear black, but it is best to have some lighter colour, in form of collar or trim, near the face.”
