My Mum has a super power.
She can’t fly, doesn’t have super strength and isn’t faster than a speeding bullet. She can sniff out cat pee on carpet at a hundred paces, but I think that’s less of a super power, and more of a carefully honed talent.
No, what my Mum can do is take photos that almost invariably make anyone standing in front of the lens look really, truly hideous. (Sorry, Mum – I know my sister’s on your back about this too, and God knows I love the family album and the fact that you chronicle everything, I really do, but honestly!)
Last year I wore a fetching green Diana Ferrari dress – It was shiny, and had a scoop-neck and did up at the back with a bow.
You’ve never seen it.
Nor will you.
One Christmas, and one look at the Christmas photos and I retired that dress on the spot.
This year I thought I’d give myself a sporting chance, and put together a selection of outfits that I know look good on film, but I’m having a bit of difficulty narrowing the choice down to one.
So I thought I’d put another poll together, and let you choose for me!
Opinions and recommendations are embraced: Don’t like the top I’ve chosen? Suggest another! Haven’t included your favourite dress? Let me know! Obviously disregard my lack of makeup and proper accessories
