Old Hollywood Dreamy Eyes

The Hollywood industry has changed drastically. The time and landscape may be new and overrun, but the thing that really stands out is that today's starlets still try to emulate the classic beauties like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich and so on.

Old Hollywood was the essence of real women. Women wanted to be noticed for their flawless beauty, hair and outfits. Looking back to the 60's,70's, 80's and even 90's it was all about a sexual revolution for women. Women wanted to dress how they want whether it was an androgynous look or not. Women wanted to be looked at for their brains and power not their beauty.  But Marilyn Monroe or Sophia Loren were huge stars who proved they had just as much talent as they did beauty.  Classic looks focused on a ladylike glamour.

I am very inspired by the fierce women of these decades. I think in general that era was much more fascinating than ours. Women acted like ladies and men were gentlemen. Chivlary was alive and kicking and everyone had respect for themselves.  Marlene Dietrich was my inspiration for my look today. She had a very sculpted and contoured face. She was known for her dreamy, sleepy eyes and her very precise contours. Granted I was blessed with chubby cheeks (note my sarcasm) so I don't quite have that great cheek bone structure. But anyways.
