Thought I would share this piece by The Huffington Post‘s Style section, and just save us all a ton of time! They have been kind enough to poll their massive following for beauty tips, and I’m all about it!
Apparently we’re still operating under the ultra-dramatic shadow of Gone with the Wind, a movie I cannot stand. (I am not sorry!) It’s absolutely beautiful, devastating, iconic, and heart wrenching, but it’s also a MILLION hours of overwrought, “faithful slave” hocking, romanticized nonsense. According to people in “the know,” Margaret Mitchell didn’t even like it, and refused to be involved with the adaptation!
Don’t get me wrong, I love the way it looks; the actors, costumes, cinematography and settings are all completely gorgeous. I would just rather look at the pictures than have to sit through the drivel.
In any case, I think we can all agree that Vivien Leigh was ridiculously beautiful as Scarlett O’Hara, and managed to create one of the most well known, snappy, manipulative, desperate, conniving, delightful, homesick, dedicated, intense Southern women in cinema.
And, whether or not you’re a fan of the film, these “Southern Beauty Tips” are sure to be useful, if not entertaining. So, take your pick, add to the list, and let me have it in the comments!
