Both cards have been sent to me this week, I think because I say I like anything vintage, and I do. Two things struck me about these cards: one the facial expression - so disdainful, and second the portrait behind Marlene Dietrich.
Do all models adopt this look? It's so unlike a normal expression. We have recently been treated in this country to various series of "... Next Top Model" and they don't even approach normal everyday life. I don't make a habit of watching but I saw an episode the other night. Another world.
As for the portrait behind Marlene Dietrich in the top picture, I think I should know what it is, but I don't. I do like the similarity of poses.
