  3. Anon: You think it's jackie? Hmmm... the hair i guess but the makeup is more her rival maria callas? there's also a bit of jean shrimpton in there and faye dunaway... well it's that period generally?

  4. well if not specifically Jackie O, ms turlington here certainly looks like a prototypical 60s upper-crust Washington DC political wife who, despite her hair-sprayed backcombed lacquered facade & seemingly Nembutal-dilated pupils, still seems to be quivering on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Non?

  5. Anon: I love the "nembutal-dilated eyes" - yes the dazed caught in headlights look which i was going to say is so Valley of the Dolls - she's a jacqueline sussan girl!
    but the thing about christy is that she is so beautiful that the styling and photo doesn't make her lool 'drag'. can you imagine this on linda now? DRAG!
