"Outer beauty attracts,
inner beauty captivates"

I am a total fashion nut.
That is, in my dreams, not in my wardrobe!
(sigh, that darn budget thing...)
My favorites are formal dresses.
I suppose it is the repressed princess in me.
and one of my other favorite loves?
Today we combine the two
with a theme of BEAUTY
- and some fantastic Red Carpet dresses.

She Walks in Beauty
- by George Gordon Byron
"She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
Diane Kruger 2012
"One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress.
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.
Amy Adams, Oscars 2013
And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!"
- end of She Walks in Beauty

what lies within us."

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she knows."
- Audrey Hepburn

who you are;
adorn yourself accordingly."
