Congratulations to Allure

Jan 15 2013 Published by under Fashion (or not)

The January issue of Allure included a series of makeovers of young women in Year Up, a program that provides job skills, classes, and internships. The magazine brought in stylists and gave these participants make up, hair, and outfits suitable for an office. This year, one of their makeovers stood out:

Sorry for the poor photo quality; I snapped that with my iPhone while reading the magazine on my iPad...

Working within the constraints of her dress code, the stylists gave this woman a great but covered look, perfectly appropriate for her banking internship! I love that they have taken on Islamic dress, something US fashion magazines generally ignore.

Bravo, Allure!
