The Three Graces Dancing…..youth & beauty, mirth & elegance
Brooch. Unknown maker ..Shell, gold, pearl, and enamel (after the original design, depicted in a painting by Antonio Canova 1798/9).
The Three Graces, celebrated in classical literature and art, were the daughters of Jupiter (or Zeus in Greek mythology), and companions to the Muses. Thalia (youth and beauty) is accompanied by Euphrosyne (mirth), and Aglaia (elegance).
My favourite has to be the ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ shoot she did last year. Not only did she look like royalty but it celebrated her 50th birthday.
To be 50 and still look so radiant and gorgeous is an absolute God’s gift from heaven and that’s obviously what she is!
Her make up was flawless, her hair was classic, her diamonds & jewellery were fit for the Queen and her outfits were the most angelic pieces. From head to toe she looked ravishing!
Can I also just say that the article itself was so tragically beautiful, and it showed such vulnerability and sadness but also holding a new chapter in her life. I may have cried for her but I also wanted to throw her a damn good party to celebrate new beginnings!
I’m so proud of my idol.
P.S. Bless her, she actually got an allergic reaction on set too from a little rabbit!
