гламурGlamour – contradictory notion that causes many disputes and provoking people to the different, sometimes radically opposing emotions. Although this term has quite a specific meaning, what is the glamour of many remains not entirely clear.

Festival of disobedience

With regard linguistics glamour does not cause misunderstanding. In English the «charm», «charm», «attraction». That is, everything that attracts admiring glances and perhaps even arouses envy as an embodiment of the highest degree of beauty. But all these attractive features are broken to pieces, if a conversation about this fashionable-social category is conducted in Russian. «The glamour Queen», «glamorous character» and other epithets, which are firmly attached to this definition does not seem compliments. On the contrary, be so for many it would be an insult.

What woman will be more noticeable in the crowd шатенка with understated makeup, beautiful nature, but dressed in a business style or sober casual, or blonde with shining curls, with red lipstick and lustrous jewelry or jewelry? The answer is obvious.

The sixties have become a new milestone in the history of fashion and glamour changed its face. For example supermodel Twiggy girls began to paste a huge eyelashes, more Mature take as a base makeup Audrey Hepburn with its broad arrow, following way Brigitte Bardot – beating three-dimensional «бабетты».

Glamour, ascended the throne after the sexual revolution is суперобъемная perming, not in a measure, a sleek makeup, later came the loud clips, начесанные and залакированные bangs, square shoulders.
