Jewellery lover Shining Anita Ekberg

This post features one of the most iconic faces of the 20th century Anita Ekberg, who passed away 11 January 2015. Undoubtedly, Anita Ekberg loved jewelry decorations, wore tiaras, necklaces, earrings and bracelets until old age. However, in fairness it should be noted that her beauty outshone any jewelry… Meanwhile, better known as iconic Swedish-Italian and Hollywood actress, and a cult sex symbol of 1950-1960s, Anita Ekberg was Miss Sweden 1951.
Born Kerstin Anita Marianne Ekberg on 29 September 1931 in Malmo, Skane, Sweden, Anita Ekberg grew up in a large family, where she was the eldest of eight children. Anita started her career as a fashion model after she had won the beauty pageant in Sweden. Soon after, the crowned beauty left Sweden for the United States to compete for the Miss Universe crown. Although she didn’t speak English, Anita Ekberg entered six most beautiful finalists. In the United States, Anita met Hollywood producer Howard Hughes, who advised her to change her nose, teeth and name (he said “Ekberg” was too difficult to pronounce). Future symbol of lush beauty Anita Ekberg wisely refused – “when I become famous people will learn to pronounce my name, and if I don’t, then name will not make any sense”.

Alien beauty Sasha Pivovarova

If ten years ago someone had told Sasha Pivovarova, simple Muscovite, that her name would be known all over the world, she wouldn’t probably have believed. She never dreamed of becoming a model. She wanted to become a painter and after school entered the Department of Art History of the Russian Humanitarian University. Alexandra Pivovarova fell in love with the artist and photographer Igor Vishnyakov. He convinced her that she is beautiful, and just made for the podium. Then he had to convince modeling agencies. The photographer decided not to waste time, having sent his favorite photos to the best-known New York modeling agency IMG. And after only two weeks, 20-year-old Sasha Pivovarova has opened the Prada show at Fashion Week in Milan in 2005. Six consecutive seasons (unprecedented!) she was the face of the Italian brand. All advertising campaigns, demonstrations and activities of the brand – nothing passes without her.

Natasha Poly on jewelry and beauty

Natasha Poly on jewelry and beauty: Like any woman, I have a weakness for jewelry, but for me it is important, not the price, but an event that is associated with it. Therefore, most of all I love my wedding ring. When dressing up for some way out, I always remember the phrase by Chanel: picking up the decoration, remove the last you put on. Indeed, a little more jewellery – and you already look tasteless. I think that when a woman wears a lot of jewelry, it is old. I remember my first decoration I bought it myself – long earrings in vintage style. But the first really expensive purchase was a watch Rolex. Small, but for me it embodied some new, unlike the former, a life which I was timidly entering. Today, the watch is worn by my mother.
