Fashion Talk with Latina Beauty Camilla Belle
TOP FASHION RULE
“My number one rule for dressing is to always dress appropriately for the occasion”, says the actress (in Ralph Lauren Collection at the 2012 Met gala), whom we met recently in Miami during Cotton's 24 Hour Runway Show.
DESIGNERS SHE LOVES
"I couldn't name just one designer because there are many designers that I admire and love to wear. When dressing for a red carpet event, I look to designers from Carolina Herrera, for her feminine and chic shapes, to Jason Wu, for his modern woman and always changing style", says the actress of Brazilian descent (here dressed in Carolina Herrera).
HER FASHION TIPS
The actress shares her tips for dressing elegant and chic:
1- Dress for your body type, not just to follow a current trend.
2- Always be aware of where you are going and dress appropriately.
3- A simple look is always more elegant than going over the top.
4- Be aware of what colors suit you best.
IN MY PURSE…
“I always carry a mirror, Altoids, bobby pins, a hair tie, my phone, and a mini tube of lipgloss.”
IN YOUR CLOSET
The actress lists five items that should always be in every woman's closet?:
1- Lots of cotton: “I have lots of cotton in my wardrobe. It's not only comfortable, but it’s also versatile enough to fit into just about any look, day or night.”
2- A pair of nude pumps: “They elongate our legs and go with various color combos.”
3- A flattering LBD: “It can be dressed up or down depending on accessories.”
4- A pair of simple black flats: “They can be worn with pants or dresses.”
5- A classic trench
TIPS FOR ACCESSORIZING
"I am a massive fan of accessories. I collect items whenever I travel and love choosing what I'm going to wear everyday. I always pick a focal point though -either big and elaborate earrings, or a big and elaborate necklace; never both. With rings, I don't have a rule... the more the merrier. With bracelets I also want a balance by either wearing an attention-grabbing cuff, or piling on delicate thin ones."
