The Ever Changing Faces of Goldie Hawn

I'm a big fan of Goldie Hawn- she is hilariously brilliant in her films and she seems to have an eternal youthful beauty (much like her character in Death Becomes Her, although not as fragile!) There were heaps of her films on over Christmas- Private Benjamin, Overboard and my one of my all time favourite films, Death Become Her which are all examples of such sheer comic genius. More recently, it was The First Wives's Club with it's all star cast and the strong theme of women empowerment. I would definitely recommend that you watch it. Although Hawn has starred in so many films, these three come in at top of the list both for both her and her funniness.

Take a look at the following film stills of some of Hawn's ever-changing looks from some the 80s and 90s comedies...

The Slob
The Glamour Puss

I cannot go on enough about it enough, as you well know- I simply adore the 1960s era- the youth revolution, the clothes, the yet another change in society, especially for women. Goldie Hawn is a golden oldie and in her heydey she was much like Twiggy in that she wore short dresses, applied black eye liner and pale lipstick and had a short bobbed haircut. I love that too. Soo sixties. And later on, the Bardot-esque pumped up barnet. Effortless and absolutely stunning. Perhaps that's the reason why I'm beginning to love Duffy so much.
