Gemma Arterton Hair and Fashion (2)

Previous Page
 
The Fashions:
 
     Gemma’s outfit is a perfect example of class and sophistication. The added details of the styling are the perfect foil for what she might perceive of as flaws in her figure. Let’s take these details one at a time and discuss what they accomplish:
 
Gemma Arterton - Long hairstyle with layers Gemma Arterton wearing a white blouse with buttoned-up collar blouse collar to balance a swan-like neck Gemma Arterton wearing a long tailored jacket Gemma Arterton's clothes to mask a pear shape body

     Button-front blouse with buttoned-up collar:
 
     Gemma’s blouse has a nice, crisp collar that is buttoned-up and sharply-pressed. The clean white blouse provides a neutral focus for her torso, and the collar helps to balance her slender, swan-like neck which can appear awkward thanks to her strong jaw line. Furthermore, the blouse is sufficiently long to come to a stop at the top of her inseam, which helps to create the strong central column of focus in her torso.
 
     Long, tailored jacket:
 
     Over her blouse, Gemma is wearing a tailored jacket that is cut long so that it hangs to the tops of her thighs instead of ending at her hips which is more traditionally seen in women’s tailored looks. The long jacket helps to mask the pear shape of her torso and provide a completely slender silhouette.
 
     Slim leather belt:
 
     In addition to her pear shape and long neck, Gemma also has a long torso. However, by adding in the belt to break the line of the blouse within the jacket’s framing, it helps to separate the long-body into balanced halves.
 
     Taken together and adding the splash of color from the large clutch purse, the outfit is a classy and sophisticated look that would still be ultimately wearable and wouldn’t look contrived. Most importantly, the look seems comfortable and easily attainable by many women who have the same body issues.
