Love. Is there anything more complicated? The answer is an emphatic no. In life, poetry, and fiction the subject has been explored ad nauseam, but perhaps there is no place it’s been more analyzed than film.
Leading ladies are fascinating creatures when it comes to the ways of ardor. Legends who need only one name: Garbo, Bacall, Marilyn, and Judy. Then there are the modern single name stars: Meg, Julia, Reese, and Kate, just to name a few who fill our screens with comedy, peril and true love.
Whether it’s Andi in Pretty in Pink or Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind, the sirens of cinema romance are fierce, funny, and flawed in ways that are both fascinating and all too familiar.
The newest Estie is a tribute to all of these starlets. She’s red to symbolize love, passion, courage and action. She’s elegant, graceful, feisty and a little bit fancy. And while Rhett Butler may not give a damn for her, she’s dear to us. She’s a new love for everyone, but she reminds us of the most singular one: Scarlett.
