"Acting, is the art of becoming somebody else."
First show of sorcery: A sighingly romantic flaxen-blonde. The means - Ivory chiffon by Clairol, coiffure by Maison Antoine. Complexion, ivory; eyes misted in lavender; lips light coral. to enhance the shimmering illusion, an incandescent jewelled pin, shaped like a Burmese pagoda. By Vendome. With it, draped at the throat, a scarf of myriad shrimp-colored beads, each one embedded in crystal, like roe en gelee. By Hattie Carnegie.

The magic,here, is distinctly disingenuous, full of witchery and worldliness. The tint of hair, pale beige touched with lilac - Mist of Mauve, a couturier colour by L'Oreal. This coiffure, draped like a strip of satin from side to side, coils sinuously at the top of the head. By Monsieur Marcel. Skin tone, rose beige; eye make-up, lavender;lip colour, clear rich rose. Draped like a collar of cloth at the throat, endless yards of round little roe beads creating a moving, vibrant pattern of colour - violet, green and pink - which delicately reiterates the lilac in the hair. Hattie Carnegie necklace.
A look composed of equal parts sheer fantasy and high sophistication. The colour of the hair is burnished peach a Fanci-fullRinse for bleached hair by Roux called - disarmingly - Just Peachy. The smooth, gleaming hair is drawn from one side across the top of the head, whirled in back, swirled on the other side. The style - by Coiffures Americana. The complexion, peach tone; eye allure, bronzy-green; lips, bright coral. Starry swollen pin of extraordinary depth and dimensionality: a burst of coral stalks against leaves paved with emerald green, peridot stones. By Miriam Haskell.
A serene and notable coiffure in the classic repertoire, paradoxically demure and saucy as a Jane Austin heroine. The colourig: Grecian Blonde, a light soft, natural brown by Tintair. The hair is shaped forward from a centre part, then drawn up into a smooth, crowning coil. Coiffure by Andre Amelio of the Salon Debbian. Make-up - sheer classicism - consists of beige complexion, hyacinth blue eye shadow and light, bright red lipstick. The jeweling: fresh green leaves rimmed with gilt, nestling on long pretend pearl strands of almost blue-white perfection. All by Trifari.
