Day 20 Challenge 🔴: It’s no secret how much I adore #ScreenGoddess Rita Hayworth. While watching her movies, she was the first to introduce me to #Flamenco. I use to mimic her moves from the movie, “The Loves of Carmen” . So when I was modeling in New York, I decided to take flamenco lessons and buy the ruffled shirt, castanets, and flamenco shoes…I later even dared to make an all white flamenco skirt, which turned out to be surprisingly good!

For this challenge, I decided to tie in my adoration for Flamenco with the #BirdCageVeil . This netted piece of fabric was a popular accessory
during the #1940s and #1950s , which adorned hats and headpieces… .

In this Challenge 🔹: I want you to do your hair in a #pinup #hairstyle of your choice, and incorporate Bird Cage Veil into your hairstyle. You can even do a
simple, chic #chignon. You are welcome to wear a hat / fascinator with Bird Cage veil, but keep in mind that there is another challenge that will require you to wear a vintage hat too. You ARE NOT required to dance or do moves like I demonstrate in my video, but you are welcome to do some dance moves if you would like 🙂 Just for the fun of it! . .
Use DESIGNATED HASHTAGS🔴 : #BirdCageVeilStyle and #30PinupStyles in your description underneath your photo(s) or video(s). Hold up a sign in your photo or video saying Day 20! Post your results for this challenge anytime on November 20th during your time zone.

Day 19 challenge 🔴: Dorothy Dandridge is one of my inspirations…

Day 19 challenge 🔴: Dorothy Dandridge is one of my inspirations behind doing what I do regarding the #Pinup and #OldHollywood styles.
Unfortunately, one of the sucky parts about #AmericanHistory and #ClassicHollywood was racial discrimination and lack of positive representation in the media for people of color (especially for Asians and Blacks). For example, #BlackWomen were limited to playing roles as domestics, slaves, and unflattering stereotypical roles on the #SilverScreen. #HaysCodes also made it more difficult to have diversified casts on screen. The extremely few roles that did allow Black women to shine on the silver screen, were usually given to either Lena Horne or #DorothyDandridge. These roles were typically in movies with all Black cast. Both of these women fought to not be pigeonholed into stereotypical roles, and helped pave the way for examples of Black beauty and glamour in the media. I can go on and on about this subject, but I won’t at this time… .

For this challenge ➡️ Find an image of #DorothyDandridge to use as inspiration for your hairstyle and styling (optional) for Day 19. Include the Dorothy Dandridge image in your pic collage, swipeable photos, or video. Don’t forget to show your number and post during your time zone.
