Everybody Loves Lucy
She had such a fabulous style, to which I think the biggest contribution was her confidence. She wasn’t dictated to by trends, she simply made her own. She created a style uniquely molded to her own personal taste and people surely responded to it. She was proof that the most important thing you can be is yourself.
Something I’ve recently noticed as I’ve watched classic reruns of I Love Lucy is her make-up. I’m positively fascinated by her make-up. The skinny, high-arched brows, the full and pouty lips; these were things my eight-year-old self couldn’t see for all the comedic glory. It’s almost as if I’m rediscovering the show now as each new scene brings even more fabulous make-up. Every day I think, “Oh, I want to try that!” But that’s Lucy. After all these years, she’s finding new ways to inspire me!
