UN-POLISHED: Celebrity Edition

Introducing an exciting new feature on my blog: UN-POLISHED WEDNESDAYS.  Each week I will be posting snapshots of looks that need some perfecting or just a little Polished by tu-anh touch!  Take a look below, where I have shared with you some of the most unappealing looks I have seen on celebrities lately.  Do they not have personal stylists or even full-length mirrors?  As you scroll down, you will see a fresh, simple, chic polished look I recently spotted in Teen Vogue.  I think these celebrities could learn a thing or two from how regular young women express their style these days.

And if you are out and about and see someone who looks un-polished in your town, make sure to snap a photo and email me.  If it is you that are having “un-polished” issues , then email me a selfie and a little blurb and I will feature the photo in my blog with my expert style feedback for you!

Was she paid a lot of money to wear this?
What is sexy, feminine, and appealing about these looks?  Simply overdone.

The dress on the left is nice, but it is ill-fitting at the top.  I don’t think it was custom made for her. If Miley was performing on stage, I would say ok, but I would replace the black circular pasties with red heart-shaped ones.
I don’t have much to say about this.  Just that I would not be caught dead wearing this little animal print number.
Simple, chic, and timeless with an edge.

How “UN-POLISHED” are you?

In an effort to polish my community and surroundings, I am so excited to share with you that starting next month, I will launch “UN-POLISHED WEDNESDAYS” on my blog where you will have the opportunity to contribute.  What does this mean?  Basically, it will feature snapshots of looks that men and women are wearing that need some refining or the Polished by tu-anh touch!  I have contributors around the country and the world in major cities (DC, NYC, Chicago, LA, Vegas, Tokyo, Ho Chi Minh City) that will be a part of this so it will definitely be fun and very interesting!  And for sure I want you to get involved!

See someone looking un-polished on the street, the mall, at work, at a social gathering, on the train, at a beach…or anywhere?  Or are you having “un-polished” image issues yourself that you would like some guidance on?  Email me a photo of your look and a little blurb and I will be happy to give you some quick tips!  This also goes for home and work spaces that need some refining and organizing.

To get started is simple: just input my email info@tu-anh.com into your phone.  Anytime you capture an unpolished look, just email it to me and title it “unpolished” and then let me know what city and where it is from and your name if you would like credit on the photo.  No worries about people’s faces as my team will crop or block it out.  Sound exciting?

From the photos contributed, I will share my expert advice on how those looks could be improved and polished.  Take a look at the photo below I snapped outside on my way to listening to DJ Heather Femia spin at Masa 14 rooftop with my stylists.  I am looking forward to your contributions and hopefully, you will have fun and get some inspiration along the way.  So, start sending those photos now to info@tu-anh.com and look for “Un-Polished” Wednesdays to debut in February!

How flattering is this?  First of all, the cigarette has to go!  Smoking is bad for your health, the environment, and the people around you. The pants could use some alterations at the thighs and at the hem for a better fit.  The white jacket could be replaced with a longer overcoat or trench.  The handbag should be in black or just plain tan.  As for the hat, it’s ok, but for a more chic look, I would do a beret instead. 🙂
