She Has Just Turned 70!


I think she qualifies as a grande dame don't you? Barbra has been around for a long time.  Do you remember this outfit?  I do!  That is very telling.  It created a furor in 1969 when she won for her Fanny Brice role in Funny Girl. That movie melted our hearts and dazzled our eyes with the costumes and her larger-than-life persona.



I guess what I love about Barbra Streisand is her will and her Independence.  She leads the life that she wants without apology.  Why would anyone apologize for having created a small street of shops to display her collections?  Ms. Streisand has talent, money and an eye for beautiful things.

I watched The Way We Were last night and found myself crying at the end, just like I did all those years ago when it came out (you just didn't/don't miss a Streisant movie) She IS Katie in that movie who lets go of her true love because she can't let go of being herself.

She's an original...

Happy Birthday Babs!



Bisous,

Stella
