Halloween costume ideas: Maria Felix
Do you already know what you want to be for Halloween?! Did you like my previous one? 🙂 Now lets move to another continent and another language (close to my heart.) As someone of Mexican heritage, classic Mexican cinema is just something that lives in your home, and your parents will tell you that this was the best era of movies of course! Maria Felix was the classic heroine of the golden era of films – her beauty unrivaled. She was known for being bold and vivacious (with a matching tongue) in a time when women weren’t really allowed to.
Like her contemporary, Elizabeth Taylor, she was in love with jewels and worked with Cartier to make those sparkly dreams come true. Just to get an idea of her tastes, click here to see images of items photographed from her vast and super glam estate! La Doña has left her fingerprint in modern day style, even though she doesn’t get the recognition she deserves!
While I definitely don’t have the Cartier jewels to pile on like she did – I did have plenty of costume pieces to layer. As a person who wears very little (and mostly the same pieces every day), this was really fun!
