What's Your Star Style?


At first, when I took it, my result was "naturally charming," with Ingrid Bergman as the star example. This fits, to some extent, because I do think I am a natural, in terms of style. But when I read the other personality descriptions, what seemed to fit best was "smartly tailored."

Naturally Charming: Ingrid Bergman

Your fresh, youthful spirit shines through everything you do. You are fun-loving but not impulsive. Active and sportif, you were possibly an athlete when younger—and, if so, probably still enjoy sports as a spectator or a participant. You’re capable and at ease in almost any situation, around a campfire or a boardroom. Your wholesomeness, loyalty, and steadiness gives people a feeling of comfort around you. There may be a seriousness about you, an unflinching understanding that life holds sorrow and pain, but you find ways to rise above those sad moments and help others to do so, too. You’re quick to laugh and quick to defend those you love. There’s a deep-seated optimism in you and a centered calm that is very attractive to people and animals. You are the rock many lean on—or wish they could.

I have never been an athlete, and to me, camping out, is dressing out of your suitcase in a hotel room. I do have the seriousness and unflinching quality, though. But centered calm & deep-seated optimism? Really???

So I took it again, changed the ones I had been deliberating about to the "other" choice I had been considering and came out "smartly tailored." So I must have qualities of both and should probably consider both style types for inspiration.

Smartly Tailored: Katharine Hepburn

You are intelligent, savvy, independent, quick-witted and never take no for an answer. You project an aura of refined self-confidence and positivity, and a plenty of sass thrown in for good measure. You say what you think and you mean what you say. If a group needs a spokesperson or a mistress-of-ceremonies, they turn to you. It’s easy for you to get exasperated and you often comment on life’s little ironies with a wry smile and a cocked eyebrow. Your speech is peppered with sarcastic remarks and funny stories, but if someone crosses the line with you, watch out! They will be singed by your regal glare.

What’s your star style, I wonder. Take the quiz and then, come back and tell me!

By the way, still thinking about the red carpet? Check out Kay's blog comparisons of this year's Oscar gowns to the same styles from yesteryear in one of the best "who wore it better?" posts I've ever seen!

Here's just one example: remember who wore this same design at this year's Academy Awards?...

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

    1. How cool, Heather! I don't remember the celebrity for that one, but it sounds cute. :) Glad you're enjoying my blog!

    2. The celeb was Debbie Reynolds. Interestingly she is supposed to be a Kibbe Soft Gamine and I think that is what I might be too. Kind of hard to tell since I've put on a whole bunch of weight over the years and the examples all looks so slim & trim.

    3. Heather, I have been exploring Kibbe, too, and finally narrowed it down to one of the gamines and then landed firmly on Flamboyant Gamine.

      But my weight is what made it so hard to figure it out!! I had to look at pictures of myself from 10-15 years ago and compare it to the Kibbe body type collages, and that worked.

    1. Mwah right back at ya! That's totally okay because I know how things can get for mamas like us. And yes, I did like them both. I love classic movies and she really reminded me of all the lovely afternoons I used to spend watching the classic movie channel on weekends.
