I finally saw Gilda again the other night.. and fell in love with Rita Hayworth all over again. She is absolutely ravishing, overshadowing everyone in the movie with her beauty. It made me think about today's standard of beauty compared to that of then.. and wish I was born in a different era. Her hair is magnificent, her eyebrows drawn to perfection and her wardrobe.. ah don't even get me started. The sharp shoulders and the low necklines, excessive jewelry, drapery and cinched waists are enough to make a girl want to time travel. Oh and the hair......... must have her hair.
If you haven't seen it, you absolutely must.
Thinking about the movie is making me all depressed.. I miss my own little love story.
