I just want to update all of my clients and readers of ColorIntervention.

My business has taken off in personal consultations!
This is great for me, but is not giving me anywhere as much time to update the blog and go through all of the emails.

So, please if you would like a consultation – be patent.
It is taking me longer than before to reply to people.

I’m still here, just getting lots and lots of in person consultations on locations and sets. If you are interested, then send me an email – and hang in there.

Thanks to everyone for the years of support!

So Close…

Many were so close to perfection here…

Great silhouette, beautiful, yet the tone was just slightly off for them to go from amazing to perfect for their own coloring and tone…

Alas, there were no good Air’s – so I will have to search the After Parties for some good examples…

More comments later, but just wanted to get these up and posted for everyone!

So there were actually more “good” here than the Golden Globes…

But they were all in the Fire or Ice categories:

SAGBestFires

These are absolutely the best Fires from the group.  Two of these I will compare to previous bad colors in them, so you have a context for later in this post…

 

 

 

 

SAGBestIceSo many great Ice ladies here!  All are working it very well!

 

 

 

 

 

Comparisons will be in the post after this one!

For now enjoy all these that did great!

Okay…

I’m posting this, because there have been a lot of questions to me (and confusion) regarding these two dresses in particular…

Giving all of my readers some background information on how these award shows and the press work…

The press/media get some notes about each person/dress from either that person’s Pubic Relations Team and/or the designer themselves.  They are just reporting according to the crib notes they have on hand that have been provided from one or both of those sources.  They want things to sound “glamorous” or more exciting, so create extra adjectives to describe things that may or may not be the actual situation.

Two cases in point here:

GGBrownVersesEggplantExample1

GGBrownVersesEggplantExample2

I know, I know.  The press and media were calling these dresses “Eggplant” or “Aubergine”.  Fancy words that weren’t the actual color or tones of these dresses.  They were BROWN!  Worked for both the Fire on top and the Earth below.  I was there and saw them in person with my own Color Expertise eye.  They are BROWN dresses.  ;-)

Just so you know.
