Beauty Biography of Jacqueline Bisset

Bella Donna: Jacqueline Bisset

British-born actress Jacqueline Bisset first became well-known in the late 1960s for her parts in films such as Bullitt, Casino Royale, and Two For the Road, in which she starred with Audrey Hepburn. The wavy-haired actress, now 65, was initially often cast for her stunning good looks, aka "window dressing" roles. In fact, in the late 1970s, Newsweek named her "the most beautiful film actress of all time," and I'm guessing that Andrew McCarthy's character in Class would have to agree. Eventually Jacqueline was taken more seriously for her acting abilities, garnering award nominations for Golden Globes and Emmys.

More recently, she's been seen on Nip/Tuck and has made the transition from sexy screen siren to seasoned actress very successfully, as evidenced by the following statement she once made: "Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades." To get Jacqueline's old-school look, which translates quite nicely into today's makeup palettes, it's all about the dark liner and mascara, along with a tawny blush like Benefit Dallas ($28) and a subtle, nonfussy sheer lipstick like Bare Escentuals Quick-Stick in Escentual Fig ($14).
