Recently named the most beautiful woman in the world for the fifth time, if there was ever anyone to draw some inspiration from when it comes to style, Julia Roberts is your woman.
With People magazine releasing its annual ranking, the actress knocked last year’s number one, Jennifer Aniston, off her throne to take out the title 26 years after she first appeared in the list back when she was a fresh faced 23-year-old. Arguably just as fresh faced, the 49 year old has a timeless beauty and classic style to boot. So what style lessons can we learn from this pretty woman?
1. Its all about the hair
Looking through photos of Julia, it becomes quickly apparent that behind every good woman is an even better hairdresser. The actress’s hair is always perfectly blow-waved or in a chic updo. This is an easy element to replicate – Julia does not do messy hair and as a result always appears polished.
2. Keep makeup to a minimum
This pretty woman knows that less is more when it comes to makeup, opting for an incredibly natural look with minimal eye shadow and more often than not nude lips. This ensures she doesn’t make herself look any older than she is and makes her face appear flawless – letting her features shine through and showing off her natural beauty.
3. Back to basics
Usually seen in black or white, Julia’s style is incredibly classic. Unlike many other celebrities she doesn’t seem to feel the need to go overboard experimenting with colour or wild outfits, instead sticking with a mainly monochromatic palate. She also favours tailored pieces that add to her overall smart and chic style.
4. Eye for detail
While her style may be simple, Julia almost always wears earrings or a necklace. A fan of dangling earrings and statement necklaces, these accessories help to transform her otherwise understated outfits into red carpet worthy looks.
5. A smile is worth a 1000 words
If there’s one thing we can learn from Julia Roberts it’s that no outfit is complete without a smile. Regardless of what you’re wearing or how you feel, flashing a million-dollar smile really does make the world of difference.
