Dame Judi Dench has a luminous face.
We are best friends if you count all the film, television and theatre performances I have watched. Of course I don’t know her at all but she does have a most convincing persona. Perhaps it is her winning smile or the happiness in her eyes but whatever her secret, it is working. She looks like a woman who has grabbed life with both hands and cherished the moments.
Who is to say if this is true as nothing is ever as it appears on the surface? This is simply the impression Judi Dench portrays and one worthy to emulate.
Her acting is wonderful and her many roles diverse but what I notice about Judi Dench is her constancy. She doesn’t really change and I think she has aged with such grace and beauty. Her style stays very true to whom she is and the older Judi has a very similar signature to the younger one.
Her hair has stayed in a short pixie cut. Shades have gone from auburn to fabulous platinum and the layers soft or spiky but in general it’s much the same. She is obviously a woman who knows what she likes and what suits her.
The all over platinum has to be my next “hair” stage and I can’t wait. I am not sure how to make it happen; I don’t want to go back to colouring and there is still much colour in my grey – any tips?
Dame Judi Dench would also seem to be partial to a necklace, especially the fine versions. In many of her photographs she wears a myriad of delicate necklaces in different lengths.
Recently I admired a small monogrammed necklace given to my daughter for her birthday.
Her girlfriend had chosen her an “E” to match the “V” she had given my other daughter earlier in the year. Jokingly I said I didn’t want to be left out. When I arrived home from my travels, this divine girl surprised me with my very own “V” and it’s not even my birthday. One thing I am eternally grateful for are the gorgeous young things who bring so much joy into my life through my children.
Next we are moving on to middle initials – why stop at one? I think Dame Judi would approve. xv
