people who daydream about movie stars aspire to."
Hal Rubenstein on Catherine Zeta-Jones:
-- You rarely, if ever, see a shot of this woman in t-shirts
and jeans… She is tailored, sparkling and bejeweled. That’s

but she understands hair and makeup. She understands,
she’s a dark-haired beauty in a sea of blondes. She plays
this and uses this. She has incredibly strong eyes and

-- The signature look for her would be the hair cascading

-- The woman has curves; I think this is another reason

it’s a whole bunch of color and she has a distinct sort
of jewelry pattern that goes with it.
-- If she wears color it’s almost always with clear diamonds.
And if she wears black, that is when she’ll wear colored
-- You don’t see her in high-neck dresses, long sleeves,
never a turtleneck. She has great shoulders.
