Style Maven Series: Eileen Davidson
Many of us know and love Eileen for her long standing role on The Young and the Restless as chemist and cosmetic business power player Ashley Abbott. We get our daily dose of this Genoa city style maven on CBS, well at least I do. I have watched her daily trials and tribulations since I was in high school. I love how my 65yr old father calls Y&R "his story" and no one can interrupt or talk when "his story" is on! Ashley and the Genoa city crew are serious business around my parents home and also now in mine (DVR Status). Y&R is seen in many countries including France the birthplace of fashion. Did you know that in France Young and the Restless is called “Les feux de l’amour” (The Fires of Love).

Eileen is not only a brilliant actor, playing many other roles other than Ashley over her career but she is also a mother (1 son and 2 step-sons),
wife and AUTHOR. She is the author of 3 successful novels; Death in Daytime, Dial Emmy for Murder and her most recent release Diva Las Vegas. She recently tweeted that her 4th book will be entitled: "Swingin' in the Rain" she's currently working on it.
Any multi-tasking, hard working, creative mother inspires me. She is a Style Maven who is not only beautiful but hard working, creative, intelligent and she loves her vintage clothes! a girl after my own heart. We can all only aspire to look as bright, fit and flawless when we are 50+ and FABULOUS! BRAVO Eileen, you are an inspiration to us ALL.

She also said, "I'm not that Facebook or Twitter savvy. I hope this does the trick for you!"
