How It Fells Yo Be Very, Very Beautiful

KIM NOVAK distrusts beauty. She remembers the painful years when she was too tall and too shy to be at ease. Ignored by her classmates until she won a modeling contest, Kim pointedly observes, “I was the same girl I had been the day before but then no one talked to me. My picture was in the paper and everyone became friendly.” Flattery is still hard for Kim to handle. She has finally learned to take beauty in stride but warms only to people who accept her looks with a casual lack of concern.

ELIZABETH TAYLOR ignores beauty. Indisputably one of the most beautiful women of our time, Liz Taylor was a beautiful child, a beautiful adolescent, a femme fatale at twenty. Liz wears her loveliness comfortably and assumes everyone else is similarly endowed. Completely informal at home, she is enormously susceptible to beauty in other forms, clothes and jewels in particular. Liz pays them the respect they deserve by taking pains to wear them well. “That’s why Liz is always, endlessly, interminably late,” observes Mike Wilding.

JEANNE CRAIN Worships beauty and always has—beautiful art, music, people. But not just surface beauty. Recalling her first acting role, in the eighth grade, when she played a scarfaced Indian girl, Jeanne says, “But she was beautiful inside.” Jeanne values beauty enough to cherish her own face and figure. She enjoys being “admired just as a woman.” Ten years of marriage and four lively youngsters have only enhanced the fabulous Crain looks. A cherished tribute from son Paul, Jr., proves it: “Sure people like to write to Mom. She’s so beautiful.”
