Tonight is the big night! I know many of you will be off to see the new The Great Gatsby - how exciting! I just re-watched the 1970s version this week, which will probably remain my favorite because of the tawny quality of the filming, the sweatiness (yes, I love that) and the actors, including my girl crush Lois Chiles as Jordan.
I took the liberty of picking out a few things for the leading ladies of that film version. What do you think?
Daisy: ultra feminine, soft, classic, expensive, safe, vain
Materials: Diamonds, pearls, platinum
Jordan: young, athletic, self-assured, unmarried, stylish, sexy
Materials: cut steel, onyx, bakelite, amethyst
Myrtle: garish, colorful, desirable, desperate, doomed
Materials: Glass, celluloid, ribbon, enamel, paint
