Girls in Pearls

-------

Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese is often seen channeling Betty Grable, among other Old Hollywood screen sirens, but it is Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer’s unknown subject in his famous work Girl With a Pearl Earring that came to mind when I saw this photo from today’s Melbourne Cup in Australia (essentially the Kentucky Derby Down Under). The fuchsia lipstick and exotic orchids are a bit dramatic for the painter who kept his color palette simple and made a statement with light. However, bringing a masterpiece from the Dutch Golden Age to life for a day at the races is definitely deserving of some Beauty Counter kudos.
