Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra 1963. Can't get enough of the 60's doing period…
Ancient Egyptian. Egyptians developed their own unique style. Sheep wool wigs were worn to parties and women dressed in linen ankle-length dresses with straps that tied at the neck. Rich women wore heavily bejeweled collars called wesekh. Women also tinted their lips and cheeks with red ochre and lined their eyes and brows with black kohl using a fine reed.
Just a gorgeous shot from an Egyptian flavored Tumblr. Go check out the link by clicking thru her blog is awesome!
