C.Z. Guest is one of the few truly great American style icons. She was the epitome of classy California life. One of the best things about Mrs. Guest was her ability to mix dressy and casual. Everything she wore fit nicely, was made of fine fabric, and flattered her. These three things immediately elevated everything she wore to a state of simple luxury. Another signature was her beauty look. In every picture I have seen, C.Z. Guest has on simple, polished makeup with a defined brow and a pale pink lip. There was no fuss, just a clean, polished look. Her beauty choices were part of what anchored her outfits. Flawless makeup and quality clothing always allowed her to look easily chic.
