Eyes around the world are glued to Revealia Photography muse Peace Omana. Known for her multi-colored eyes, this brilliant teen also has a distinct look people are intrigued by. Her atypical femininity could be called “subtle yet striking”, as one supporter stated. Here I will share the style term people see but have no name for: “Ethereal Natural Gamine”.

She seems to be a unique combination of styles. Innocent yet mesmerizing, ethereal-looking people have an angelic sense about them. Peace’s doe eyes seem to look right through you- and see beyond you- all at once. Her faraway gaze looks like afternoon traffic could not irritate her. Flowing fabrics and hairstyles with delicate jewelry match this aspect of her style. (Ethereal celeb looks: Corinne Bailey Rae)

Peace’s relatable appearance is what also makes her style Natural. Close-set eyes, large, friendly smiles, and features that are more curved than sharp give her a welcoming vibe. Nice or not, a Natural’s lack of extremes is what makes them so alluring. Combined with Ethereal, Miss Omana’s warm demeanor makes her seem angelic yet familiar and down-to-earth, like a childhood friend. Natural people are most flattered by easygoing and functional pieces; the key words are “comfort and informality”. (Natural celebs: Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Aniston)

The Gamine aspect of Peace is what people notice the most but have the greatest trouble communicating. Her ability to go from harmless to prankster in one photo is impressive! Gamines are absolute spunk, not “boyish”. Often considered masculine, women in this category are quite feminine with plenty of confidence. They do not immediately appear “womanly” as society knows it today; that is the Romantic style type (radio/media star Toolz Oniru for example). Ironically, surrounding a Gamine with tons of “girly” ruffles, lace, and ornate florals can take away from her natural beauty. On Romantics, frill makes perfect sense; for Gamines it will frustrate their style. They need more refined structure: less jewelry and ruffle, more angle and detail. Shorter hairstyles like pixie cuts showcase Gamine features more than long hair (case in point: Halle Berry). People consider it “masculine”, but would you consider high-heeled sneakers masculine? I doubt it.

(Breathe easy: Many women who wear Romantic clothing know something is missing, but assume they are not feminine or “good” enough. This causes them to quietly question themselves and purchase more Romantic clothing to “make up for not being feminine enough”. #1. No, you are not the only one thinking it. #2. Yes, you are feminine. Yes, you are more than good enough. #3. No, it is not too late to discover your best feminine style. Not being a Romantic does not make ladies any less of a woman; knowing what works best gives women that feminine confidence they yearn for.)
