XX Century Legendary fashion model Veruschka (born 14 May 1939)

XX Century Legendary fashion model Veruschka
This Manhattan night in the spring of 2008 turned out to be extremely pleasant, without the usual suffocating humidity, so characteristic of New York. Hundreds of guests gathered on the terrace, located directly on the roof of one of the skyscrapers. Below was a view of the darkening Hudson and the flashing street billboards.
For Verushka! – rushed from all sides, and the glasses moved again and again. At least two hundred guests gathered, and all of them turned their heads to the giant projector, which continuously showed pictures of the times of Veruschka’s glory… The most famous 1960s model, filmed by all outstanding photographers of the second half of the century and by many directors, including Antonioni.
Once seen, Verushka was impossible to forget: very thin, long, like a liana, with infinitely thin arms and legs, flexible … Unusual face framed by straight, light hair. Large, well-defined lips, thin nose and eyes – blue, motionless, and unable to laugh. The culprit of the celebration was Vera Lendorf, in a simple black dress and felt hat, as flexible, slim and elegant as in the photos, although she was almost 70. She sat at the end of a long table and, as usual, smoked one cigarette after another. It’s amazing, but her face has not changed much since those legendary times, in certain angles she could be given no more than 40! At the same time, everyone knew that Vera had not done any plastic surgery and had not trained in gyms – it was just God who gave her such a body and such a face.

Family happiness of Miss Universe Oksana Fyodorova
Andrei and Oksana were already acquainted, but had not yet met. One day he first invited her to his country house. At the entrance to the village Oksana saw the sign “Emerald town” and gasped: “This is a fateful coincidence!” For some reason, she always subconsciously believed: sooner or later the day will come when she will meet her man. But she was always unlucky. Many will probably wonder, Miss Universe does not have suitors? “It’s incredible, but the fact is – by the time of the meeting with the future husband, Oksana was completely alone.
She finished her studies – first at the police school, then at the university of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, worked hard, changed her place of residence, and built a career. Also made mistakes, but still believed that she would have a family. She did not know what he would look like, what eyes, hair, voice he would have. And she dreamed of a laconic, kind, and reliable man, the right person. That’s what she called him – “the right person.” The man who can stand up for his family, and in a difficult situation to take responsibility.

1960s beauty icon Swedish actress Britt Ekland
From time to time it is worth remembering the past, at least to understand how beautiful it was, how light and easy we sometimes were without putting any effort.
But in our time, permanent selfies, cheap cosmetics and fashion for everything that is shocking, contradictory and scandalous (thanks to the reality show), we gradually lose some subtle, elusive sense of style.
Sex appeal is now much more aggressive than 50 years ago. Clothes become more and more frank, the cult of the ideal body gradually takes fanatical turns, and the main tasks and goals of youth are becoming simpler and easier.
But do we have the lightness and grace that the representatives of previous generations had? Who is the current equivalent of Audrey Hepburn? Can any of our contemporaries compare with Marilyn Monroe? And have we allowed the fall in the standards of beauty? Of course, there are a lot of different opinions and positions on this subject, and fashion is constantly evolving, but one can hardly deny the attractiveness of classical beauty.
This post is a reminder of the style of beauty of the past. And in particular, the stunningly beautiful Britt Ekland, who embodies the standards of beauty of the past, and it’s just great.

When talking about a geisha, one always remembers a specific make-up. In particular, white-pale faces, scarlet red lips, underlined by black lines and highlighted in red eyes and eyebrow.

Noteworthy, a unique combination of makeup colors black, white, and red is symbolic and determined by the Chinese tradition. By the way, another rich and noticeable Asian culture – Korean, own distinctive, dear to the heart symbolic colors. But for Chinese and Japanese, red is a favorable color, which represents success and prosperity. The Japanese perceive the color of the sun in red. White color is purity, perfection and a new birth. The combination of two colors is suitable for many cases – happy and dramatic. And white and black together – under sad circumstances. But black, red and white at the same time – Harmony, life and death, beauty and decay, happiness and sorrow. They are like the symbol of Yang and Yin (black and white).
