I'm not sure why they want to spotlight the copyeditor - I'm not the one putting together the package, I'll just be making sure the contributions are consistent to format and have no egregious proofreading errors (I'm not the greatest proofreader in the world).

I've got a pink blouse with grey pinstripes oxford that I've worn with the black suit on interviews, because I didn't want to look too stark.

Think of yourself as a product and what market you are selling yourself
into.
After that, presentation becomes easier.
Respectability doesn't necessarily come clothed in a business suit and
most professionals out there are well aware of that.
There are other aspects you may want to project: somebody who is easy to
work with?
In which case a more relaxed approach would work, along with a smile and
an easy approach on the make up.
Talk to the photographer about the make up perhaps, as they would be
dealing with the light aspect?
I don't wear much of it myself, so can't advise.
Cheers!

David
