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?
