    I’m doing these in reverse somewhat foolishly, but my word that ‘cloth of gold’ headress is the best one yet… one could (almost) imagine it on a woman today. In Paris, In Fashion Week.

    • Vickie,yes Movie Egypt is a fantasy land where the imagination runs free.Must have been quite a fantasy destination at the time as well when only the richer classes would have travelled anywhere near there.

    Claudette’s lovely feliness seems entirely appropriate to Cleopatra given the Egyptian affinity for cats. Fabulous photos, and what’s next? Vivien! Gosh!
