April 21 is Andie MacDowell’s birthday.
I’ve often used Andie MacDowell as a shining example of textbook Taurus style. Here’s a photo of her, for instance, wearing a camel-colored trench coat: the classic Taurus garment.
I had never looked up her natal chart until just a moment ago. Surprise, surprise — she has Taurus sun, a Taurus moon and a Taurus ascendant (if the time provided on astrotheme.com is correct). Venus, the ruler of her Taurus ascendant, is in romantic Pisces, too. That makes sense to me considering where she’s found her fame and fortune.
Anyway, I tell a little story in “Star Struck Style” about running into Andie MacDowell a couple of decades ago. She was radiant in person — especially for a makeup model who was wearing no makeup. She looks almost the same today, on the occasion of her sixtieth birthday.
There are a lot of people in show business that I look up to, but it’s mostly the well-preserved who really inspire me. Too often, Taurus women take the easy way out when it comes to looking their best. Andie MacDowell is the exception.
When I was poking around online, looking for a photo to illustrate this post, I stumbled across this article on the “W” magazine site where MacDowell shares her beauty secrets. She confirms everything I have ever written about her and the most-practical path to achieving typical Taurus style. She also confirms that the two of us would get along because we like all the same things.
She is an inspiration to us all!
