When was the performance, I also auditioned, but to no avail. However, I knew that the film would not miss! In the end, I adopted early fossa. To meet with producer SAI Foyer I came in character, dressed as Sally Bowles, as I imagined it in coats and scarves. Before that, I went to my dad and asked to talk about the glamour of the 30-ies. Wanted to portray Marlene Dietrich, I thought to disguise themselves as blonde. And he said to me, “No, wait!” Brought the book and showed photos of famous brunettes of the time: TEDA Bara, Louise Glam and Louise Brooks. I was inspired by them.

I was born in a family where all the women were beautiful, but I didn’t pay much attention to it. We are not taught to think about how we look. It wasn’t something I was proud of, rather what I was given. I’m not obsessed with her appearance, but cinema is a visual medium where looking good is necessary,— said in an interview with Catherine Deneuve.

“The family of Tenenbaum” (The Royal Tenenbaums), 2001

Hairstyle with a fancy name “bagel Two” after the film became a cult classic. To repeat it, by the way, is not difficult, just the amount of swirls still better to reduce. Make a Central parting, and then two tails on the sides. Loop each of the two strands of hair and make curls at the sides. Fix the hair with hairpins and lacquer — and may the force be with you!
