Gertrude Reflects



Cecil Beaton often photographed the elegant and the glamorous
whilst gazing over a shoulder into a mirror. There seems to be an
indication that their beauty was simply too much for a single
image ... . . or was it an acknowledgment that we should all
take a moment to reflect occasionally ?

Whatever the intention -
He seems to have captured Gertrude Lawrence
in a reflective questioning moment.

My simple answer to that question.
Yes, Gertrude, you look divine.

If i were a Gertrude i would want to double myself for sure especially in such a sleek gown...I love the safety pin, I am thinking that maybe Gertrude is not entirely well put together and has to use a safety pin to keep from tripping on her ragged hem...Perfection is an illusion afterall!
