Exotic Empress

One element I believe is essential to being a woman of great stature is mystery. I'm very intrigued by other women who carry themselves in such a way that you can't quite put your finger on them.  Everything is not all hanging out for you to judge.  It's something very subtle, a hint of something grand.  In my dealings with women and making them beautiful with makeup, or a styled look, the one thing I know for sure...you can't buy confidence and you can't fake mystery.  I think it begins in the mind and pours out from the heart.
Become a woman of mystery, stand a little bit taller, smile a little bit wider (from the heart) and walk down that sidewalk like the world is yours. It truely is. Keep it Glam- xo -Taj

Aymeline Valade & Olga Sherer for Roberto Cavalli Fall 2011
I love this campaign except for one thing: the makeup! uggh so drab.  They should have called me! Of courrrrrse you don't have to wear head to toe animal print, but isn't this inspiring and oh-so exotic! And to all of my animal lovers, just tell youself it's faux!! Yes we all support that and love furry animals so let's not pepper me with those comments mmkay? I feel like Cavalli has really hit his stride with this collection, you know he's been rockin' the animal print foreva!  p.s. no I'm still not ready for fall, even with this lusciousness!

I believe that being a woman of mystery has a lot to do with having more to yourself than the world can possibly know. I see people getting curous every time they don't have an inkling of what i am doing. That is one of the keys to being mysterious.

Lovely post. Great pictures.
