Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor and 10 more recognized beauties that the whole world was talking about! We reveal their beauty secrets.
British actress and model Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4, 1929. The first "star" role - a ballet dancer in the film "The Secret People", filmed in 1951. Just three years after that, she won the Oscar (nominated 4 more times) for Best Actress in Roman Holiday.
The American Film Institute has put Hepburn in 3rd place in the list of the greatest actresses of the 20th century, and authoritative publications have repeatedly called her the most beautiful woman in the world.
Audrey made the role of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's as a cult figure in the film industry. She herself has repeatedly admitted that she considers her the best in her career.
In 1960, Hepburn gave birth to a son from actor Mel Ferrer. In 1964 she starred in the musical "My Fair Lady", the appearance of which was expected no less than "Gone with the Wind" with the incomparable Vivien Leigh.
The last years of her life, Hepburn almost did not act in films and spent a lot of energy working at UNICEF.
Audrey is the owner of perfect skin. In an interview, she admitted more than once that she owes this to the steam baths, which she practiced twice a week.
Hepburn never wore strings of eyebrows, opting for a natural, wide shape, and famously used a pin to separate the lashes from each other after applying mascara.
In 1957, designer Hubert Givenchy commissioned perfumer Francis Fabron to create a perfume especially for Audrey. So the legendary Givenchy L'Interdit perfume saw the light.
Elizabeth Taylor was born on February 27, 1932 in London. During her career, she won three Oscars and became the first actress to earn a million dollars!
Taylor's personal life has always been discussed in the press no less than the release of a new bestseller with her participation - Liz has seven marriages on her account.
In 1961, the actress was offered to star in the historical film "Cleopatra", after the release of which thickly painted black eyeliner eyes came into fashion.
A year earlier, on the set of Butterfield 8, Taylor fell seriously ill (tracheostomy), after which there were reports in the press about her death. But she managed to get out, continue her career and get an Oscar for her role in this film (another for her role in the psychological thriller Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?).
Elizabeth had an amazing mutation - the actress's eyelashes grew in two rows. This gave her look a special expressiveness and mystery.
Taylor is the owner of a rare eye color with a slightly lavender tint: it was their makeup artists who often emphasized in their makeup.
Liz could not boast of a healthy lifestyle, but at the same time she constantly monitored her appearance - every day the actress pumped her with a 10-minute facial massage.
Jacqueline Kennedy was born on May 28, 1929 in the family of broker John Bouvier III and Janet Norton Lee. From 1961 to 1963 - the first lady of the United States and one of the most popular women of her time. She was remembered not only for her elegant outfits and the legendary pink suit from Chanel, but also for her great contribution to art, the struggle to preserve the great monuments of architecture.
With her husband - the future president of America, Jacqueline met at a dinner party of mutual friends. Only a year later they began dating, and two years later they announced their engagement. The couple's wedding ceremony was attended by about 700 guests. The first lady's wedding dress is now in the Kennedy Library in Boston.
In 1957, Jackie Kennedy gave birth to the long-awaited daughter Caroline Bouvier Kennedy, in 1960 - the son of John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. Three years later, Patrick Bouvier Kennedy was born, who died of respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn. Then America for the first time saw tears in the eyes of its president.
Jacqueline often hosted receptions at the White House, to which artists, actors, directors and other representatives of the art world were invited. The first lady always looked impeccable: styling, makeup, outfit - everything was thought out to the smallest detail.
Jacqueline's secret of youth is facial gymnastics, which she did regularly.
Periodically, the hostess of the White House arranged fasting days for herself on champagne, assuring that it was they who helped her maintain an impeccable figure.
Claudia Cardinale was born on April 15, 1939 in Tunisia. She began her career as an actress in 1957, winning a beauty contest, where the producers noticed her and offered several episodes.
A year later the company "Vides" signed a contract with her for 7 supporting roles, according to which she had no right to cut her hair, get better and get married. But a year later, she violated the terms of the contract, becoming the wife of the owner of Vides.
Cardinale gained fame after her role in the film by Mauro Bolognini "Handsome Antonio" (1960). In the same year she starred in the film Rocco and His Brothers. In the 60s, Claudia played about 40 roles!
In the late 80s, the actress went to live in France and practically stopped acting.
Cardinale does not consider herself a beauty and in one of her interviews she admitted that beauty was never her trump card. For the sake of a thin waist, the actress has never denied herself spaghetti. The secret of her harmony is a drinking regimen and fractional nutrition.
Brigitte Bardot was born in 1934 in the family of businessman Louis Bardot and Anne-Marie Musel. Since childhood, the future actress and singer has been dancing and dreamed of building a ballet career.
In 1947, Bardot passed the entrance examination to the National Academy of Dance and was among the eight lucky ones enrolled.
She gained worldwide fame not thanks to dancing, but after the film "And God Created Woman" (1956), where Bardot played the unbridled eighteen-year-old Juliette Hardy.
In the 60s, she was repeatedly included in the list of the most beautiful women in the world.
Over a 21-year career, Brigitte starred in 48 films and recorded over 80 songs. In 1973, she decided to retire from show business and joined the ranks of activists in the fight for animal rights.
Bardo was married four times. Today she is married to a politician and entrepreneur Bernard d'Ormal.
Brigitte always said that the main adornment of a woman is posture. Her first husband Roger Vadim admitted that he first fell in love with becoming a Bardot, and only then with everything else. To achieve a perfectly flat back, Brigitte recommends exercising once a day: wear a glass of water on your head, or replace it with sandbags.
The actress never considered herself a canonical beauty and encourages all women not to be afraid to be imperfect, but to learn to love their flaws, as she herself once fell in love with lips of an unusual shape, which she owes to an incorrect bite.
The actress and wife of Prince Rainier III of Monaco Grace Kelly was born in 1929. On account of her only 10 films, one "Oscar" and the glory of the recognized beauty of her time.
Grace received a strict Catholic education at Rainhill College. There she first appeared on stage, playing the Virgin Mary in the play.
After moving to New York, Kelly worked as a model, and at the same time studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
At the beginning of her career, Grace auditioned for many roles, but the most she got was spots in commercials. The actress managed to conquer Broadway only in the 50s.
In 1953, she starred in the film Mogambo, for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. But Kelly received her award for another image - the girlfriend of the alcoholic singer in the film "Country Girl" (1954).
While filming Alfred Hitchcock's To Catch a Thief, Grace met Rainier III, Prince of Monaco. Their wedding took place on April 18, 1956. The four have three children.
In makeup, Kelly has always preferred nude shades. The princess paid special attention to the choice of tonal means - they had to ideally match the skin tone.
To make her cheekbones more expressive, Grace used a special technique: first, she applied a darker shade of coral blush, then a lighter one.
