Miss Claudia Cardinale

Another beautiful and inspirational Italian screen goddess. I wish that the era of these glamazon women would return. They didn't need much to get ready but they knew what it meant to be a woman. It meant being a sensual being and very visceral. They held their wonderful feminine qualities intact. I hate to start an argument over feminism and women's rights, but I believe that many women have driven that feminine mystique away from themselves only to prove how "equal" we are to men. They downplayed their sensuality, their charm, their god given beauty...those were reasons for them to be stereotyped and judged upon their sex. Hey, a woman can be whatever woman she wants to be. Free country. However, I like to be a WOMAN with capitals. I don't hide my nature given traits and I am not afraid that someone will look down upon me or think less of me because I choose to be overtly feminine. In this day and age, I think that would instead be massively embraced as the gender line slowly fades away. Let the words tramp and slut disappear in our vocabulary and our dress code and let's start showing a new breed of woman. A real classy gal.
