First let me tell you what I love about Soprano’s star Aida Turturro pictured here at the 2007 Emmys.
I love her age and season-appropriate makeup. I love that she’s laughing. I love that while she may be twice the size of most of her female colleagues she looks like she’s having twice the fun, too.
However (yes there’s a however, you know I don’t just say nice things and be done with it) there is A Lot Going On with this look. I mentioned this before –and will mention it again– that especially when one is a big girl not blessed with great height, one must be extra vigilant not to overdo it with the floaty fabric and the lace and the beadwork and the big fluffity hair.
There’s got to be restraint somewhere–a sleeker ‘do, bare arm instead of the not-fooling-anybody wrap– or else you’ll just get gobbled up by the mass of your own ensemble.
Spiritual soul mate and illustrated big girl Ursula the Sea Witch shows us a better way.
See? Hair away from the face, simple accessories. This is how it’s done. So remember ladies, next time you’ve got to dress up, remember Ursula here. To quote an ex-boyfriend –who may or may not have been talking about the tentacled temptress– “she may be evil, but damn, she always looks fantasic.”
