Musing On Beauty

“The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” — Yves St. Laurent


Beauty Icon: Diana Rigg
January 17, 2010

I mostly find beauty inspiration through movies and pictures. I collect them on my Tumblr but I thought I'd share favorites with you on here.

I have been watching The Avengers lately, which I had never bothered watching before. I probably wasn't mature enough to enjoy classics :-)
Anyway, I am really liking Dame Diana Rigg in the role of Emma Peel. I think for that time, she was pretty daring with her outfits, and Mrs Peel is definitely a strong woman and a different kind of role model if you consider the options women had in 1961!

I also think Dame Diana Rigg can be considered a beauty icon. We mostly mention Brigitte Bardot or Audrey Hepburn when thinking about that decade, but for me she deserves the same iconic status.

From Wikepedia.....

Quote:
Dame Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg, DBE (born 20 July 1938) is an English actress. She is perhaps best known for the role of Emma Peel in the TV series The Avengers, which she appeared in from 1965 to 1968. She has also had an extensive career in the theatre both in Britain and America.

Rigg made her professional stage debut in 1957 in The Caucasian Chalk Circle and joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1959. In 1971, she made her Broadway debut in Abelard & Heloise. She played Medea in 1992 at the Almeida and Wyndham's in London and again in New York, where she won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play.

On television, she starred in the 1989 BBC miniseries Mother Love, for which she won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress and the 1997 adaptation of Rebecca, which won her an Emmy Award. Her film roles include, Helena, in A Midsummer Night's Dream (1968), Countess Teresa di Vicenzo in the James Bond film On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), Lady Holiday in The Great Muppet Caper (1981) and Arlene Marshall in Evil Under the Sun (1982).

Rigg was made a CBE in 1988 and a Dame (DBE) in 1994. She is considered a sex symbol and an icon of 1960s feminism.
