While the beauty industry keeps pushing the “never-aging” idea to women’s ears, not everyone is entirely obsessed with this trend. More and more women prefer to age naturally, gracefully, and with style. One such person who’s making a breakthrough in her fight against beauty stereotypes is a model named Colleen Heidemann, who turned 73 in 2022. This woman inspires many with the way she treats her gray hair and wrinkles as a beautiful accessory, and we’d love for you to take a dose of inspiration from her today.
Movies filmed during the Golden Age of Hollywood have their own special magic and charm. Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth and other stars of that epoch look at us from black-and-white film frames, their hair curled in sleek continuous lines, their eyelashes covered with thick layers of mascara, and their eyebrows super thin. Times have changed, and the stars of modern movie hits look completely different.
When talking about Hollywood divas of the past, we normally recall Vivien Leigh, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe wearing dashing dresses. The gorgeous outfits were usually created by designers of movie companies who stayed in the history of fashion like world-famous couturiers. Every one of these dresses hides a big story, and they even have their own secrets.
When we watch a romantic movie or series, we want the main heroes to be together, and their wedding is like the cherry on top. There are also movies where a wedding is just the beginning of the story, and the plot twists begin only afterward. Whatever the case, it’s always exciting to watch a movie wedding, especially if the costume designers did a great job.
The phenomenon of Marilyn Monroe can be spoken about endlessly — an ordinary girl has suddenly becomes the biggest actress of the ’50s, and the men were literally falling down at her feet. The girl gained enormous popularity, and her photos were all over the billboards of cinemas and on magazine covers.
Royal weddings are a big event, and one of the most anticipated moments is, undoubtedly, the unveiling of the dress. When the bride steps out of the car, all eyes are on her. Then we can’t help but think of the fairy tales we heard as children. But although the moment is dreamy, there are many details that go unnoticed by the public.
It is no secret that the life of a royal is not as sweet as fairytales have made it out to be. It is not just wearing beautiful gowns and a crown, but also following a strict set of rules and traditions that have existed for decades, if not centuries. There are currently 26 monarchies in the world, and each royal family has different rules and values.
Bridal gowns have come a long way from very formal petticoats and corsets to sleeveless and colorful modern-day wedding dresses. Aside from being a symbol of happily ever after, wedding dresses can tell us a lot about social and cultural norms of a certain era.
Choosing that one special wedding dress is never easy. If you can’t find the design of your dreams in modern magazines, try flipping through some vintage celebrity photos. Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Priscilla Presley, and many other famous women of the past wore wedding gowns that looked so stylish and beautiful, they continued to inspire brides around the world for many decades.
Modern beauty secrets have come a long way, but old Hollywood celebs also knew some creative tricks for how to look awesome on camera. And even if you have a short forehead, there is a simple secret that Ingrid Bergman used.
It’s been more than 60 years since the American actress, Grace Kelly, married Monaco’s Prince Rainier III, but still, there are many mysteries surrounding this gorgeous woman. Recently, one of them was accidentally revealed by X-raying her wedding shoes.
The sea, sports cars, yachts, and palm trees, these are the things you think of when you hear someone talk about “Monaco.” This place can be easily called a paradise for millionaires and celebrities. The Principality of Monaco is a tiny but very prosperous country. Besides, it has a rich history, a variety of entertainment, and excellent weather almost all year round.

In every movie, there’s a wardrobe, but some are limited to just having dresses and others have “DRESSES” — true works of textile art that prevail in our memory more than the plot of the films themselves.

Royal weddings are usually loaded with crowns, diamonds, dreamy dresses, and lots of opulence. Those are the things that are most admired and highlighted in magazines and documentaries, as you have probably noticed. However, the truth is that behind those perfect ceremonies, there are an overwhelming amount of secrets that very few people know about or notice. For example, the earrings Kate Middleton wore that day were a gift from her parents and symbolize her family crest.
Glamorous weddings, sparkling crowns, and the honor of being a member of the royal family — these are the things that might make us dream of marrying a prince or princess. However, tying the knot with a royal means following certain rules, which can certainly test any relationship — especially one that is constantly in the public eye.
There is a legend that Charles-de-Gaulle contemplated invading Monaco, but changed his mind because he knew he wouldn’t be more popular than Grace Kelly. The amazing life of this successful actress, and later, princess, was like a fairytale and still moves people all around the world.
The reality of today is that the wedding dresses of famous brides are discussed as much as political news. These “celebrity” dresses become trendy and many girls chose similar gowns for their weddings.

Through photographs we can get a glimpse of how these celebrities have dealt with their lives, some living faster, others keeping the reflection on their faces of the children they once were.

Most of these styles became iconic and won’t ever be forgotten.
Coco Chanel once said: “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future. A trail of a well-chosen perfume always compliments a lady’s style. It usually plays one of the key roles in her persona.” That’s why many famous people, not specifically women, pay attention to the choice of “the” perfume.
