Red-Red-Red

Red lipstick becomes each and every woman, no matter if you are blond, red-head or brunette, young and fresh or gained solid experience along with few dozen of wrinkles

and Elizabeth Taylor prove it very well.

All you need is to find your perfect shade, texture. And don’t forget about most important thing – self-confidence.
But be aware that red colour looks well only on impeccably smooth lips. So before you start to paint your pout give it a proper treatment.

1sz

Polish it with Fresh‘s Sugar Lip Polish or with soft toothbrush once or twice a week and apply moisturizer on daily basis. Choose what is best for you – budget products like Vaseline‘s Lip Therapy Original or trendy expensive stuff – price doesn’t matter but your comfort is.

Red (and other vivid shades as well) needs a perfect frame. So don’t skip contouring.

Classic Maybeline‘s Color Sensational Lip Liner (shade Red) or Elizabeth Arden‘s Plump Up Lip Liner (shade Fire Red 09) will help you to do the job.

Invest in a good lip brush: precise application = sophicticated look.

Real Techniques offers Retractable Lip with synthetic bristles and Chikuhodo – T-10 with Weasels hair (we all remember that Japanese brushes are the best of the best thanks to refined makeup traditions of Noh and Kabuki theatres, right?).

Femme Fatale of Roaring Twenties

In my opinion, today we are lack of true style icons.

1az

There are grotesque but sexy silicone doll Kim Kardashian and pretty but very boring good girl Olivia Palermo and thousands mediocre more or less famous no-personality stars and self-proclamed trendsetters in between.

Actress and dancer Louise Brooks – the shining star of Roaring Twenties – got it all: beauty, sex appeal and wit. She was the one who made bobbed haircut popular.
Watch miss Brooks in silent German movie Die Buchse der Pandora 1929. Believe me you will not regret it: this old film is a cinematographic masterpiece, mesmerizing and stylish.

bl2
Louise was a perfect choice for the main character Lulu – explosive mixture of dark seduction and childish naiveness. With help of director Georg Wilhelm Pabst and camera man Gunther Krampf she reigns on the screen.

bl60
Miss Brooks looks gorgeous with sleek hair and curls.

1bl
It’s amazing, but she doesn’t look cheap or vulgar wearing dress with very low cut neckline and back.

1bi
Almost all dresses are with asymmetrical hem.

1br
The wedding dress of femme fatale Lulu looks very modest comparing to many modern models.

Louise-Lulu with cigarette.

This dress looks very stylish, chic and morden though it was created 88 years ago.

For me Louise Brooks is an epitome of magic, charm and mystery – rare qualities in the modern movie industry. But I still hope that soon or later true beauty will come back to the cinema.

Swede Greta Garbo as Russian spy: pure sophistacation, chic and charm

After looking at some tasteless photos of modern celebrities like

1ak
“you never guess where I’m hiding my other leg” Kaia Gerber’s picture for Vogue, my bleeding eyes need a treatment so I watch old good movies.

Recently it was silent film The Mysterios Lady with Greta Garbo.This very naive but very beautiful movie tells us story about love of Russian spy Tania Fedorova and Austrian officer Karl von Raden.

ga20
Director Fred Niblo, cameraman William H. Daniels and costume designer Gilbert Clark created a perfect femme fatale, seductive but not vulgar.

Garbo’s close-ups are impeccable. By the way, you can have thin upper lip and be extremely attractive.

These shots can turn into an inspiration for photographers and for those instagram queens, who can not live a day without posting picture of themselves.

Gilbert Clark created for actress one shoulder grecian dresses.

Of course, it’s silly to copy these outfits, but smart fashionista can pick a lot of stylish details which suit her.

ga44
Coats with big collars make slim girls silhoettes more feminine.

ga16
And I think this hat will add a vintage charm to a modern pant suit.

P.S. 11 year later Greta Garbo played another mesmerizing Russian lady in Ninotchka.

And Golden Pussy Award 2017 goes to Sonia Lorenzini

It’s a fact (sad or funny, you decide yourself) but Venice Film Festival turns into exhibition of female genitals.

1AG
Last year models Giulia Salemi and Dayane Mello presented their pubises to public.

1AV
This year Sonia Lorenzini (Z-List celebrity from Italian trashy Uomini e DonneTV-show) was the one who shown on red carpet the difference between girls and boys. Look, how she’s holding her skirt – it’s the best proof that this “wardrobe mulfunction” was staged perfectly.
And if it goes like this, who knows, maybe next year not only girls but boys will show us their impressive assets in order to get new Venice Film Festival’s Awards – Golden Pussy and Golden Dick respectively.
P.S. It’s really sad to see how the oldest world film festival into a garbage bin or cheap brothel (choose correct answer yourself).
