The Myth of the Perfect White Tee & Other Style Advice from Lauren Hutton

When someone who has lived decades in the spotlight as a model and actress provides fashion advice, it’s worthwhile to give it pause.

In the May 2018 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, model and actress Lauren Hutton provides several fashion tips worth heeding. At 74 years old, she is featured in Amy Schumer’s new movie I Feel Pretty, a film that “chronicles a woman’s newfound confidence after she wakes from a fall in SoulCycle class believing she is the most beautiful creature on the planet.”  

About her own beauty and style, Hutton writes:  “It takes a long time to find your personal style. Most of us just sort of bump around in the beginning.”

She notes that, it’s been goodbye to four-inch stilettos after multiple operations on her leg following a motorcycle accident, but “Manolo Blahnik makes mid-heel slingbacks that feel like you’ve wrapped your feet in a Shakespeare sonnet.”

Hutton urges readers: “Forget the myth of one ‘perfect’ white T-shirt. To find the one that suits you, you must consider your skin undertone. If you’re pink, go for a creamy white, but if you’re yellow like me you’ll want a bright white. I stock up at the Row and J. Crew.”

“Why must working women wear such drab colors?”  Hutton quotes this question posed by fashion maven Diana Vreeland to designer Yves Saint Laurent. Hutton’s approach: “I always try to wear a pop of something wonderful, vibrant, brilliant–colors that feel alive.”
