Flapper Girl

In the last couple of months I have revived my love for one specific movie genre – musicals. The last one I watched has been „Cabaret“, starring Liza Minnelli, who won an Oscar for best actress for her performance in 1972.

I’m so amazed by her movie styling – short bob haircut, huge eyelashes and intensive make-up with some amazing outfits. I especially love her „flapper 20s“ styling in „Money“ musical number.

Miss Ava, True Femme Fatale

Today’s blog is a tribute to my favourite old school actress – Ava Gardner, and to the love of her life, Frank Sinatra. If she were still alive, today would be her 91st birthday.

Ava was a successful woman in a man’s world…Her life was always full of extremes – her love life, smoking and drinking habits, and of course, her wild beauty, were her trademarks…She wasn’t called the most beautiful animal in Hollywood for no reason!

In today’s world of inverted values considering beauty, spirit, and love, we truly need more women like Ava!
