When I worked the graveyard shift at a hotel in San Diego a couple of years ago, I used to come home every morning and force myself to stay up so I could catch the two back-to-back episodes of Charmed. Now, I know my TV viewing choices are often a bit dated, but Netflix has seriously opened my eyes to a whole new world of wonderful shows that feed my addiction. Thanks to that wonderful little link on my Wii, I have been reintroduced to Charmed once again; and I couldn’t resist doing a little shout out to one of my favorite shows!
If any of you aren’t familiar with this show, it’s about the three Halliwell sisters who discover that they are descendants in a line of female witches. Each of the sisters has her own special power, and the basic premise of the show is them using those powers to fight bad guys. Not rocket science by any means, but very entertaining nonetheless.
Airing from 1998-2006, the three main actresses of the show are Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, and Holly Marie Combs, although Shannen Doherty was also a main star from 1998-2001.
Okay, okay, enough backstory. What I really want to focus on here is some of the trademark gorgeousness these girls have going throughout the entire series. I am tres jealous.
Please observe: flawless skin, luscious locks, defined eyes, and perfect pouts.
Of course, they are witches so they get to play up their intense sides sometimes, but in general, they always play girls next door with a hint of innocence and personal style to accent their magical DNA.
I know they’re styled and photoshopped in many of these pictures, so many of the looks here are enhanced. However, I think there is an underlying sense of confidence and class that underlies each actress, which is especially evident if you watch the show. While each girl has her own style and they all continuously change up their looks, there is a consistent state of chic and tailored. It’s never overdone or in your face; simply classy, elegant, and stylish.
Even if you are not a magic genre fan, I definitely recommend checking out this show for the wonderful styling, makeup and wardrobes. Maybe you’ll find some new inspiration!
So, have I convinced you yet? Any other Charmed fans out there?
