american royalty: carolyn bessette kennedy

i stumbled upon this blog devoted to carolyn bessette kennedy style which reignited my interest in this flaxen beauty. she epitomized style and grace and i admire her clean lines and unfussy approach to hair and makeup(minus the high-maintenance platinum blonde hair and red lips). she balanced timeless designers like calvin klein with bolder names like yohji yamamoto. she always appeared effortless and understated, but still savvy. the pictures of her on her wedding day and pictures of her dancing or smiling at john-john just make me weepy. despite whatever the tabloids say, their chemistry was mesmerizing.

i'm so glad i rediscovered her style, especially her cosmetic choices. i just added a tube of face stockholm's cranberry veil in addition to my staple red(face stockholm silk). apparently carolyn swore by bobbi brown's ruby sheer lipstick which is now discontinued, but face stockholm's cranberry veil is a deliciously close copy.

What is it about having money that makes people look horsey? Pretty, but still... horsey.

Have you read "What Remains" by Carole Radziwill? It's a beautiful memoir about the author's friendship with Carolyn. Radziwill's husband was JFK Jr.'s cousin.
