Talking About Carly Talking

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWQY1aJ8JjU[/youtube]   A major, but frequently overlooked ingredient that contributed to the glamorous image of Hollywood’s greatest stars were their voices. Under the studio system, actors were given rigorous voice training. They were taught to enunciate clearly, and how to emphasize certain words in order to give better line readings. They were drilled on how […]

Take #2: The Meaning of Leaning in Hollywood

Leaning boards ( also called Slant boards) were invented for Hollywood players to relax between takes. Frequently, the costumes were cut on the bias, and tailored so snugly that the actor could not sit without bursting a ladder of seams. In fact, most of the time, there were no zippers or buttons on the costumes. […]

Valley of the Modest Dolls

Seraphic Secret likes to follow trends in fashion. Our mission is to ignore the slutwear that parades as cutting edge design and focus instead on beautifully tailored outfits that are both flattering, ladylike, and modest.

Friday Fashion: The Past Is The Present

  Seraphic Secret likes to check out the latest fashions, scouting for beautiful but modest clothing. We don’t believe that women have to reveal acres of flesh in order to appear and feel attractive. In fact, the opposite. The more chaste the surface, the more mystery and depth. This season, it’s kind of obvious that […]
