In 1981, after Elizabeth Taylor’s Broadway debut in the play, “The Little Foxes,” I went to a dinner party with Elizabeth Taylor’s hairdresser, Maury Hopson. When Elizabeth walked in she asked her makeup artist, Way Bandy, for a lipstick. Way didn’t bring his makeup bag to dinner, so brilliantly, he asked me for my lipstick. He presented that to Elizabeth.
I watched her reapply MY lipstick, looking into a small mirror from her purse, and then she closed the tube and popped it back into her purse! Stolen! 💄LOL!!!
Yves Saint Laurent #19 was the best fuchsia lip color from that era.
Shades of fuchsia were big in the late ’70’s and ’80’s. Here I am with my friend, hairdresser Harry King, wearing different shades of fuchsia in my clothes and my makeup.
