Girls and Cigarettes. Part III

Modern society is full of contradictions: those so called “most progressive minds of our time” are crusading to wipe all smokers off from surface of Mother Earth against smoking and at time glamourizing severe obesity.


Sorry, you can tell me whatever, but the weight of Tess Holliday is not healthy

Health campaigners would chop me in pieces explain me that I’m wrong but I think old movie stars with cigarettes look very seductive and charming.



Michele Morgan in La minute de verite (1952)


Lizabeth Scott in Dead Reckoning (1947)


Jane Greer in Out of the Past (1947)

Cleo Moore in On Dangerous Ground (1951)


Catherine Deneuve and Jean-Paul Belmondo in La sirene du Missisipi (1969)


By the way, Original Sin (2001) with Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas is remake of La sirene du Missisipi. French version is philosophical and bit boring (sorry, monsieur Truffaut) and Original Sin is all about action and passion.

Girls and Cigarettes. Part I is here.

Girls and Cigarettes. Part II. Cigarette Holders is there.

Ear Cuffs Are The Partygoers Best Friends

Big Earrings (high jewellery or bijou, it doesn’t matter) is a perfect choice for party queens – they immediately draw attention to your face and add chic and charm to your outfit.

But don’t tryst my words blindly, have a look at beautiful Jeanne Crain in Dangerous Crossing (1953).



If you are bloody rich check MessikaDiamond Whirl (left) and Calypso pieces.


Handmade Marty Magic‘ ear cuffs look quite and quirky and don’t cost a fortune. 


I like Spider Ear Wrap with Garnet Silver, Octopus Ear Cuff – Bronze, Comet Ear Wrap – Silver and Throne Dragon Ear Wrap – Bronze.

Indian women are wearing ear cuffs for centuries, so Indian jewellers definitely had enough time to perfect their skills in making big earrings.

Suhani Pittie – the favorite brand of Bollywood stars – offers a good selection of ear pieces.


Avant Garde Golden Leaves Earcuffs (left) and Rose Gold Swirl Ear Cuffs look posh and exotic.

Paint It Coral

The Pantone Color Instute announced that colour of 2019 is Living Coral, so throw your ultra violet lipsticks into the trash bin here are new trendy optionions which you’ll throw into the garbage bin at the end of 2019.

Lips come first, of course (don’t get upset if you don’t fall in love at first sight with coral: this colour has 50 many shades).


Jill Stuart offers us shade 10 Coral Cherry of Forever Juicy Oil Rouge Glow in awesome package (top left), Ellis Faas developed Glazed Lips L307 – Sheer Deep Coral, Boby Brown Coral Pop of Nourish Lip Color and Drew Barrymore’s brand Flower Corol Crush of Petal Pout Lip Color.


If you want to try coral on your cheeks check SennaCheeky Blush shade Deep Coral, Kiko Milano Coral Rose of Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush or Hera‘ Chiffon Coral of Face Designing Blush.

And finally come nail polishes.


Smith & Cult‘s opaque bright coral Psyco Candy and AstorCreamy Coral of Perfect Stay Gel Shine look pretty.

How jacket with bow can increase sale


In The Big Clock (1948) legendary costume designer Edith Head dressed actress Maureen O’Sallivan (miss O’Sallivan is the mother of Mia Farrow, by the way) in jacket decorated with ends of a bow and striped top.

Together these 2 pieces make a bow complete.


Definitely modern designers can use this trick (not only with bow but with pin, for example) to increase the sales of their brands, but they don’t watch old good movies.
