I can't believe I missed this: Susan Boyle got a makeover. Now everyone's debating the wisdom — and even the ethics — of what she's done. It's being said that she's destroyed her viability as a cultural icon by upgrading her image.
I'll address the actual makeover itself in my next post. (Friday night sunset means I turn into a pumpkin.) For now, I'll say this: Personal style is about how you want to be perceived in the world. Who are you? What do you want your appearance to say about you? Does your appearance express who you really are? Most important is that your appearance and your inner self be congruent.
This is what my image consulting practice focuses on — helping women figure out who they are inside and how to express that through their clothing — and it's why I feel that helping women with their wardrobes is an important thing to be doing.
What do you think about her makeover?
