Model Gail Chord Schuler as “Graceful Lady” Kibbe’s Soft Classic
This is a repeat of a previous video, but with stills added to highlight Gail as a soft classic. Though most soft classics are not supposed to be taller than 5′ 6″, Gail feels she is an exception at 5′ 7″. David Kibbe’s concepts have helped Gail to find her best look and her men have created a fashion line based on a combination of David Kibbe’s Metamorphosis and Carole Jackson’s Color Me Beautiful. A lady at a Canadian church introduced Gail to these concepts around 1988.
Prime celebrity examples of a soft classic are Joan Fontaine, Olivia De Havilland. Grace Kelly is a pure classic at 5′ 7″, but Gail still feels she is a soft classic and not a pure classic.
Gail has just figured out she’s a soft classic rather than a soft natural. The two styles are similar so many of her clothes still work for her as a soft classic. Those who want to order clothes from our clothing line contact Gail’s men at [email protected]
Here is the Kibbe self-test for your type. http://expressingyourtruth.blogspot.com/2013/02/kibbe.html
It might help to have an objective friend also take the test for you. I never figured out my type until I continually saw myself on camera and experimented a lot with different hair styles.
Here’s a good video on determining your coloring: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMNcZ_wmsYo
The following links describe the Winter Soft Classic (Gail’s coloring and type): http://www.gabriellechana.com/Winter_Colors7.html
When Gail wrote Brent Spiner letters in 1990 and 1991, she was dressed a lot like this, wearing a church dress with a pearl necklace. Brent Spiner fell in love with the “Graceful Lady”. She falsely thought she was a soft natural, but the photos she sent to Brent she was dressed more soft classic. And like a lady, her letters to Brent were pure friendship. Brent was the one who initiated the romance. Their relationship started off with Brent making all the romantic moves, unlike Loree McBride who drug raped Brent to gain an entrance. Gail was a lady with Brent and Loree McBride was a rapist. Gail was first and Brent fell head over heels in love with his “Graceful Lady”. He has never wanted Loree McBride.
Gail approached Brent much like the Joan Fontaine character in the movie Rebecca, while Loree resembles the Rebecca in that movie. The difference between the movie and real life is that Brent has NEVER wanted Loree McBride! After Brent came into Gail’s life she has grown and blossomed into a strong woman, but in the beginning of her relationship with Brent she was a lot like the Joan Fontaine character in Rebecca. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jafd0JspzK0
