“Glamour is the feeling of beauty, with an undertone of femininity, while looking like a lady, for all occasions,” Luxury Spokesmodel, Diabetes Advocate, Contributing Style Editor & Published Writer, Doris Hobbs explains. “Glamour is an illusion, a form of mystery revealing a fragile state that changes with time. Glamour, from my perspective, is defined as recreation from all facets of our lives. Perhaps the best way to describe it is with a ravishing red lipstick, a sensual hourglass silhouette, and style inspiration from such mavens as Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, and Jayne Mansfield.”
Doris is confident and strong-willed yet has a humble poise to herself. With spoken words of inspiration, her grammarian persona exudes through her vintage style and writing, which she uses as a visual platform to encourage the modern day woman to live a glamorous lifestyle. Both grammar and glamour embody a platform that assist her to articulate herself to be understood, while she displays a form of sophisticated style motifs.
In many cases, Doris is seen by the public as a glamorous Hollywood scarlet that possesses many European attributes, also being referenced to actress, Cate Blanchett. She presents herself with an ageless sophistication, together with an air of casual grace while at her best wearing an array of fabulous looks with a studied indifference. Doris will openly admit she is not perfectly beautiful but like every woman, has attributes that are excellent, as she strives to create elegance by choosing clothing and accessories that enhance her long legs, slender form, fair complexion, and an Audrey Hepburn-like attractiveness, which completes her patrician appearance.
On October 22nd of 2014, the vintage beauty states her life carried a new meaning and purpose, as she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, a chronic condition that results from the autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Until now, she didn’t want to share it publicly nor wear it as a sympathy garment; instead she would rather refashion how others perceive such a life altering disorder. Finding courage to face such an unexceptional occurrence, she has found beauty within the tragedy stating, “at some point in life you must find the truth in each situation and form a level of gratitude for the glamour that awaits you.”
Years from now, ingénues, fashion mavens, and fashionistas may perceive her image and story as an inspiration that can be seen beneath any particular garment or accessory that might belong to the current era. Her love for the historic implementation which surrounds the dated architecture of a bygone era, a label-less garment made of materials held together with a story, and the authentic, yet poetic words she writes are all sincere expressions of her personal courage to succeed.
