We have already featured the brilliant and sassy British Actress Amanda Redman in our Style Steal slot, way back last summer.
But if, like the team at SoSensational Towers, you have been watching her in the ITV drama The Good Karma Hospital you may, like us, have decided she is a real style icon for 50-something women everywhere and deserves to have her new grown-up-beach-babe style analysed and stolen, or at least borrowed, afresh…
In the series, the Brighton-born actress, 59, plays the clever and wonderfully feisty Dr Lydia Fonseca, who runs the chaotic little Indian hospital of the series title. But while we are full of admiration for how efficiently Dr Fonseca runs the ‘Good Karma’ hospital, we are even more in awe of her new look for this charming series (due back on our screens for a second series later this year).
In place of the sleek blow-dry, which has been her hallmark since the early days of New Tricks, and her other roles, she is rocking tousled curls. We are also loving her off-duty outfits – lots of sorbet colours that look fabulous with a tan and that blonde hair – all accessorised with statement jewellery (seen in this picture with co-star Neil Morrissey). During the series, she has also been wearing a series of fabulous, heat-defying hats, including panama-style hats and other androgynous and wonderfully flattering numeros.
With warmer days and holidays on the horizon, we think it’s the perfect moment to steal Redman’s new, sun-kissed, grown-up-beach-babe style.
So, here’s how to steal her 50-plus beach-babe style: sorbet colours, bold fashion jewellery, scrunched hair (the two things you need to achieve casually scrunched curls are brilliant products, of which there are lots, and a hair-dryer with a diffuser. Oh, yes, and a bit of a natural curl or wave, and great (packable) androgynous sun-hat (i.e. nothing with flowers!). The tanned face, of course, should be achieved with a good fake tan product while you protect your skin with a good SPF 50 product.
So, what do you think of her new style?
