External Considerations [Image Control]

Take a look in the mirror, go review your photos on Facebook and think about the image you convey to those who know you and those who have no idea who you are. What you look like has a lot to do with the opportunities (or lack thereof) you will be presented with. Whatever your look is, you need to own it and make it something that coexists with who you are as a person and what you stand for. Think of people like Andre 3000, The Rat Pack, Kanye West and Anna Wintour. These are a few people who have owned a look and are consistent with it no matter what anyone else may have to say. Before you are given the chance to introduce yourself and talk about all your great accomplishments, people have developed an opinion of who you are based upon your external characteristics. Sounds a bit vain eh? Well get over it, it is true that image is everything. As you evolve as a person, so should your look. The concept is just as important as the execution.

Barbican Centre gives us an in-depth look at Bond’s personal style with a short video that includes award winning costume designer, Lindy Hemming and a few bespoke tailors who have also been influential in positioning the consistently dapper icon of style for over 50 years. Image is like an exceptionally designed building. The blueprint is detailed and the foundation is strong. I guess you can consider that food for thought…
