Profile - June Mix It Monthly Challenge and feminine and masculine - Art Journal Journey

Over on Mix it Monthly, the challenge was to do a profile. I love faces so this is right up my alley. I found the face in a 1955 Look magazine. The picture under the model says, "The Balenciaga Hat,
like one worn by a circus pony, was frivolous idea shown with dinner clothes."
The hat reminds me of fascinator hats sometimes worn by the British as some wore at the royal wedding. I think someone would have to be a fun loving person and not deterred by anyone making fun of their hat in order to wear any hats like these. I want to encourage you and those who read my art journal to go out there and have some fun!
Valarie on Art Journal Journey told that this would qualify for their theme of masculine/feminine also so I linked it over there too. I was unsure if we had to show both in our art work or not but glad to know this would work over there also! Thanks, Valarie!

I do like this painting, she is so glamorous with her low cut dress, her fancy hair do and Christmas tree earrings. I am also interested in the fact that you happen to have a 1955 magazine, looks like it will have some fascinating photographs.
