Elizabeth Taylor is impossible to define. She played the most beautiful queens on screen, but off screen she would appear in some of the most garish and vulgar outfits, even she herself admitted she was one of the worst dressed women in the country; She publicly said her mother had taken advantage of her since she became the bread maker of her family as a teenager, but fiercely defended her mother Sara when the latter was insulted by a Hollywood producer; she dares to love, stop loving and love again, and marry men oof her own choices from Producer to Politician to truck driver, yet she made the terrible mistake of marrying the abusive Conrad Hilton Jr., the hotel chain heir against her own will when she was only 18. She was frivolous and extravagant, owning the most expensive jewellery in the world, but meanwhile she was generous and tireless in supporting noble causes against AIDS and breast cancer.
But one thing is certain, Elizabeth Taylor has been one of the real stars of her time as well as ours, and a headscarf is one of her most useful weapons to be and stay one, more than all of her fur coats and diamonds.
While describing Sophia Loren, some use the word "elegant", but most use "sexy". But perhaps the best word to describe a woman like Sophia Loren, is "Grand": She looks like an Italian volcano alive, with everything grand: grand eyes, grand nose, grand mouth, and of course, a grand figure: Grand, but feminine.
What is grander than her figure, is perhaps her personality: when one of the worlds' most handsome and stylish men Cary Grant wanted to marry her, Sophia Loren chose a married Italian man shorter and more than 20 year older than her, Carlo Ponti, and never left him; At the peak of her movie career, she stopped working for months and months to stay in bed, so she can be a mother, twice; She Calle her mother every single day wherever she is and however busy she is.
On screen, Sophia Loren can play duchess, but off screen and in her heart, she is a Neapolitan, knowing what she wants and fights for it, loyal to her family and close to the earth, like all those peasant women she played with De Sica.
But when Sophia Loren wears a scarf over her head, she is a star, even in a peasant girls' costume.
Hermes as a brand started as a harness and bridle workshop for horses in Paris in 1837. Thierry Hermes catered to the elite of Europe, and eventually the company expanded into other leather goods (handbags, clothing, etc.). Over the decades, it became a global powerhouse in the fashion world. But the most iconic items of Hermès, are its Kelly bag named after Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly, Birkin bag designed for British actress Jane Birkin, and the silk twill scarves called Carrés with equestrian themes.
The Hermès carré, made of silk twill in Lyon France, has become the most elegant accessories in a woman’s wardrobe, thanks to its connections with some of the most iconic or elegant women who wear it in all different ways: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, and Queen Elizabeth II who has perhaps the largest Hermès carré collection in the world.
