My Grandmother: Style Icon
This lady reminds me of my maternal Grandmother. She was a stylish woman in her day and when she was older was always on the lookout for fashion and accessories. She verged on the outlandish and her make-up became a bit scatty as she aged but I always loved her exhuberant style and her splash of red lipstick.
Oddly, and you may find this macabre, but when we went to see her body when she died, my mother and I both exclaimed at the same time, "Oh! She looks beautiful!" Her hair and make-up had been done impeccably and I was so happy for her. I knew she would have been absolutely chuffed to know she looked gorgeous at the last.
