Apparently, Only *REALLY* Fabulous People Look Good In Black

January 7, 2010 § 1 Comment

New Yorkers, what color are you wearing right now? Black?!?!?! According to a new British study, only one in four people have the right skin tone to look good in black. You know what that means: despite all the black that people will be wearing at the David Zwirner opening I’m going to tomorrow, only one in four of us (I) will look fabulous! On the wrong skin tone, black can emphasize the effects of aging. It makes you look old, especially the closer it is to your face. “Dark scarves, hats, polo neck jumpers and high-collared coats are apparently particularly likely to emphasise ageing features of the face.”

Oh well. Just ask Valerie Steele: black has long been the color of romance and chic, desire and disaster. Do these “scientists” expect the impractical glamazons of the world to now fully embrace bright colors?? Never. Karl Lagerfeld has never worn a piece of color in his life. He’s, like, a billion and looks fabulous. Take that, science!

    Love it. Can’t wait to forward your post to my boyfriend who complains that I only ever wear black.
