All of that changed in the 20s, when Coco Chanel sported a tan. Meanwhile in Downton-time... cosmetics were a little more popular (just a little) in the States. On the other side of the pond, Madam CJ Walker was becoming the first female (self-made) millionaire with her line of hair care for women of color. Annie Tomlin 1 year @Nancy Einhart I think you'd like it. S1 is fantastic. S2 is a little more soap-y than I'd like, but it's still great fun. Annie Tomlin 1 year @Ellenora True, but at least everyone else would be in a similar boat, right? Ellenora 1 year These are all so interesting! My hair would have suffered a lot though; my hair is a stringy, oily mess if I don't wash it everyday! That's one part of my genetics that I really hate! bibliophile 1 year Interesting factoid about the genesis of the term "blue blood"! Nancy Einhart 1 year I don't even watch this show but this history is fascinating!
