An ode to fair skin

Monday, January 24, 2011

When I was growing up I found myself constantly trying to fight my fair skin. Tan skin had become so trendy, and I always yearned for that bronzed, tanned coloring.
Well, I think the tables have turned. No one wants sun-damaged skin as they age. Society has learned a great deal about the effects of tanning.
Over-tanned and orange was a trend, fair skin (or your natural hue) is timeless.
Personally, I have learned not only to accept my naturally fair complexion, but to love it too.
My husband likes to call me his "fair-skinned lady." Here are some of my favorite fair-skinned ladies.
Rita Hayworth
Audrey Hepburn
Nicole Kidman
Marcia Cross

Anne Hathaway
Dita Von Teese
What's your opinion? Who are some of your favorites?


  1. Don't forget about Christina Hendricks from Mad Men. Gorgeous. It pisses me off.


  2. I like Anne Hathaway and Christina Hendricks.
