Our third Texas contestant this month, this classy lass is also a wife and mother of three. Professionally, she has worked as a hairstylist and makeup artist for almost 10 years. Says Tara, “I love recreating ’40s and ’50s glamour hairstyles and makeup. I also love collecting vintage clothes, shoes, lingerie, and anything for my home. I’m always on a quest for great vintage clothing to add to my arsenal!” When not out shopping, Tara enjoys traveling, hosting cocktail parties at her vintage home tiki bar, or just kicking back with a good book. When asked about her personal style, Tara says, “My inspirations are Ava Gardner (what a broad!), Bettie Page, Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe (of course), Esther Williams (what a body!)…oh, too many to name!” We think Tara’s pretty darned inspiring herself.
