Are you a crossdresser or a transgender woman striving to be your best female self? Having the right role models can really help.
I personally find inspiration from the leading ladies of Old Hollywood — they’re great examples of beauty and femininity.
If you want to add some extra sparkle and glamour to your life, here are 6 tips from Old Hollywood that you can apply to your own transfeminine MTF transformation!
1. Joan Crawford – Tip: Good Hair Goes a Long Way
“I think that the most important thing a woman can have – next to talent, of course – is her hairdresser.” – Joan Crawford
Few things have a bigger impact on your appearance than your hair. This applies whether you wear a wig or style your own natural hair.
If you want to look younger, prettier, and more feminine, the right hairstyle is the secret. Here are the 6 best hairstyles for crossdressers and transgender women.
2. Sophia Loren – Tip: Believe That You Are Beautiful
“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” – Sophia Loren
No amount of lipstick, hairspray, or surgery can truly make you beautiful if you don’t feel it within yourself.
Instead of comparing yourself to others, concentrate on your own unique beauty and femininity. Follow Sophia Loren’s wisdom and believe in your own beauty!
3. Audrey Hepburn – Tip: Always Be Elegant
“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.” – Audrey Hepburn
Who could be more elegant than Audrey Hepburn herself? With her sophisticated style and graceful demeanor, she’s one of my favorite examples of ladylike elegance.
If you want to emulate Audrey Hepburn, you can start by avoiding these 5 mistakes that make you less ladylike.
4. Eartha Kitt – Tip: Don’t Worry About the Haters
“I have used all the manure that has been thrown on me as fertilizer to make me stronger.” – Eartha Kitt
If there are people in your life who don’t understand you, rest assured that you are not alone. Even somebody as fabulous and gorgeous as Eartha Kitt had her share of haters.
Instead of letting them get you down, use their negativity as fuel to help you grow stronger.
5. Marilyn Monroe – Tip: Find Your Signature Scent
“What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.” – Marilyn Monroe
Scent is closely tied to our emotions, making perfume a powerful tool. Applying a scent that makes you feel fantastic can boost your confidence and enhance your sense of beauty.
Take a tip from Marilyn Monroe and find your own signature scent for that extra touch of confidence and femininity.
6. Mae West – Tip: Live Life to the Fullest
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” – Mae West
Choosing to embrace the woman within is a bold decision. You should be applauded for this! Many people never dare to express their deepest desires or true selves.
As Mae West said, you only live once. So, live life to the fullest, embracing your feminine self every step of the way.
