What Constitutes Beauty, or Elegance and a Sense of Style?

As a girl in my teens, and later in my twenties, I have to say I was pretty self-conscious about the way I looked, and behaved, admiring mostly actors and models for their beauty, elegance and sense of style. Without realizing at the time, that sort of thing was mostly an image relayed through photography. The real beautiful or elegant women having a sense of style roamed the streets of Europe mostly.

It’s in the last decade or so I realized that beauty truly comes from within. Because if you have a beautiful outlook on life, it will show it on your face and in the way you carry yourself. Elegance and sense of style is easily learned, and managed I feel, and most any body interested in betting themselves, can obtain such stature.

So, here’s a game I play with friends, sometimes over dinner or a walk in the park. The question we pose to one another is what do you think about this or that person  in fashion, certain  sophistication or sexy simplicity – and here are the results:


French actress Audrey Tautou is simply beautiful, corky and all around sophisticated and elegant


Marion Cotillard also a French actress is sexy-elegant who can pull of the simple look just the same


Ava Green – sultry, sexy, sophisticated, sensual and yet so very simple French actress


Juliette Binoche – no frills simple beauty and elegance – French actress
