multidimensional, integrative analysis case example: JLo

Jennifer Lopez

JLo is most likely an Autumn, if you go by what most analysts say*.  She is Puerto Rican, which is classified as Western Mediterranean Winter by Smith, but that's a Tangent.  Could she have some Summer in her and be a Soft Summer or Soft Autumn, or Jeweltone Summer?

Here's what I think is going on.  She is actually a blend of Romantic and Natural (mostly in her coloring), which is most often associated with Autumn (color) and Summer (style), but it can get flipped as well.

What would be her style Outer and Inner lines, in McJimsey? (I don't use Kibbe).

This is how I would score her: 46% Romantic, 31% Natural, and 8% each of Dramatic, Classic and Ingenue.
Dramatic/ TheatricalNatural/ RelaxedExuberant/ Lively/ GamineClassical/ TraditionalRomantic/ SensualYouthful/ Playful/ IngenueAngelic/ Ethereal

Romantic Natural - "Bohemian" is also Romantic with Natural - you may minimize your sensitivity in an effort to be casual, larger yang build but feminine features, keep clothing in scale with your size, follow Romantic guidelines in fabrics, that are comfortable, like velvet, soft woolens and cashmere, avoid tiny details

Outer Lines:  Romantic with Dramatic (or Natural for height?)
e- Romantic: Average 5'4"-5'7" (she is 5'5", which could also be Natural, Classic or even Gamine)
e- Romantic: hourglass figure, pear-shaped figure, long legged, slight fleshy, mature, average height to short
a- Dramatic: stands fashion model straight, erect or stiff, carries weight back on heels, chin slightly elevated (but I think this is by choice and certainly not by height)

Inner Lines: mostly Romantic, small amount of Classic, Natural and Ingenue
d- Classic: oval,symmetrical features
e- Romantic: large; melting, luminous or "smoldering" expression; long lashes, alluring, bedroom-y b- Natural: straight; natural; heavy or dark
f- Ingenue: small, dainty, fine boned, often button-tipped; upward tilted
e- Romantic: full, curved lips; lips appear slightly parted
e- Romantic: long; soft curls or waves, feminine styles; parted on the side rather than the middle, cascading; partly covers one eye or side of the face; short feather cut, soft bounce, never straight or stringy, loose strands or ringlets
e- Romantic: skin has a "glowing" and rich quality (any season)

Coloring: Natural
b- Natural: dark; medium brown or auburn; with age turns salt and pepper or gray; more thick than fine
b- Natural: freckled; tanned; natural-looking; ivory; mahogany
b- Natural: warm brown light or dark; hazel; warm green

Natural use of Coloring no matter what the season.

She actually presents herself as Soft Autumn, in the original.  The rest are all Taaz makeovers.  She can support and ash blonde, upper left, and her original hair color is actually closer to dark brown, upper right, thought I don't think she can really do Summer makeup.  She can also go to reds for Warm/True Autumn, at lease in hair and makeup. And she can do a Dark Autumn look also.

Look through her many looks on my pinboard:

Her eyes certainly support Autumn, though it could be her secondary.

Zyla gives brown eyes to Jeweltone Summer, 
but Caygill gives them to Dusky or Twilight Summer, btw.
