"I wash my face several times a day. And use cream only to remove theatrical make-up.
Too much make-up distorts the natural expression lines of a face. A little face powder, a little rouge, a little mascara and a moderate amount of lipstick ought to suffice in town. In the country, lipstick alone ought to be about right.” (Vivien Leigh, 1940)
Elizabeth Taylor wearing an Edith Head designed dress in A Place in the Sun, 1951.
The dress had six layers of white net over a pale mint green taffeta , studded with single velvet violets, and a bodice covered in white velvet violets with green centers. It caused a sensation among prom-going young ladies that year. Manufacturers recognized the fact and had copies of the gowns ready for purchase in stores at the time of the film’s release.
