And here's a close-up of my face:I loved the I Love Lucy hair and gorgeous lipstick! Would you believe I rolled my own hair? I thought I would make a horrible mess of myself, but the stylist said I did the best job. She, of course, styled it into place and crunchified it with copious amounts of hairspray, but I was still proud of my early-morning battle with foam rollers.
The shoot was a truly interesting experience, but it was thoroughly tiring. We spent about 8 hours walking back and forth up a few blocks of downtown in 90-something heat, ill-fitting shoes and three layers of undergarments. How did ladies ever breathe in the '50s? All the girdles and belts must have kept them thin by preventing overeating. :)
For those interesting in star sightings, I did stand mere inches from Mr. Affleck. He was good-looking and polite, though you could tell he was tired, too. I also spied Mr. Beatty and the wonderful director, of course. Did you know he's British? Loved the accent.
So that was my experience. As much as I enjoyed the dolling up and star spotting, I'm glad to be off my feet in my air-conditioned office today!
