the city should give me its key.

Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

  1. so pretty. love everything about her.

  2. I love her! She is beautiful and witty. Many of her roles are unforgettable to me. I own Atonement and Pride and Prejudice to a good part because of her...
    And unlike other super popular actresses she seems even keeled!
    Now I am off to start the big clean up!!!! (Thanks for looking in on me!)

  3. Very beautiful.

    And now I'll singing that song all day long :)

  4. Oh Gaye, she is a princess in that dress. Also a seemingly grounded actor.

  5. Hi Gaye,
    One cannot help but be transfixed by her here, not just for her natural beauty, but for the whole mood...it seems so romantic, to me, the hair dressed this way reminiscent of the 1830's,-40's, like Charlotte Bronte; the hair ornaments leading the eye to the nape, once celebrated in portraiture. There is also the long sleeves, the demure neckline, and one cannot help but think this was a considered idea of beauty, an antidote to vulgarity. Looking at the details this really shows how fashion is an art form, something museums have expressed in recent exhibitions.

  6. Philip- perfectly read. I find the look extremely pleasing- I am sending a link to the movie she is in-and it sounds like a real departure, all the intrigue of Jung and Freud-http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2033524/Kinky-Keiras-whipping-yarn-Her-role-A-Dangerous-Method-lover-aroused-beatings.html
