Wedding fever - what Julia SHOULD wear....

For homegrown fashionistas, shopistas and basically anyone with a pulse, the Royal wedding is something of a momentous occasion, not only to find out what Kat(herin)e wears down the aisle to her beloved, but also what Ms Julia Gillard will wear to represent us as Australia's first female Prime Minister (read - the first PM that we've actually cared about what they're wearing....) 

With the countdown on, Sleuth has proposed a look below for Julia, working with her complexion and also keeping in mind she is a head of state, so knee-grazing cocktail dresses aren't going to cut it here (stay tuned for wedding-wear post!)

For Julia's look, Sleuth has taken cues from another famous red-head, Miranda from Sex And The City. 
When the show first began, Miranda's short & severe crop won few fans, but as the series progressed, along with the fashionability of the show, Miranda's look was softened and played with, so by the time the movies came around, they had the right make-up working with the perfect fashion colour palette - resulting in a foxy flame-haired vixen who knew how to strut her stuff.
So come 5pm tonight, we'll see if Julia has also hit the mark with her Royal look, fingers crossed ladies!

Happy Shopping! x

Hair & Makeup

Miranda's makeup is perfect for Julia's complexion - some colour definition & highlighting on the cheeks, flawless skin (achieved by the-one-and-only Armani foundation) and bringing out the eyes for a more glamourous look.

Soft volume in the hair is also key to achieving this red-carpet-ready look.

See you on the red carpet!!
