Reliving the Post-War Party

"In 1952, Revlon launched its iconic color collection Fire & Ice™, with matching lips and fingertips in a bold, fiery red. This fall, Revlon brings back its Fire & Ice™ collection for today’s woman – who is as bold, confident, and glamorous as ever."

Well, hello Jessica Biel, vamping it up as you are in direct homage to the birth of the "new American woman".

Do you remember her portrayal as the loud, mischevious American woman in Easy Virtue? Stunning. So Revlon was really a shoo-in, what with all that red lipstick and American-ness and all...

And just to make sure you are a Revlon woman, the geniuses in the marketing department developed a quiz. Just to be sure! Hilarity!

I once got booted out of a nightclub for dancing with my shoes off - which was a blessing in disguise. I had an exam the next day which I had to depart early in search of McDonalds - post-alcohol shakes and an Asian Legal Systems exam truly was not pretty!

Not sure what they were getting at with the whole "Do you hope the next man you meet is a psychiatrist?" thing... Were American women all a bit fruity post-war? Um yes... Betty Draper.
