Let’s talk about Diane Ladd in WILD AT HEART, damn it!
Lesson 1: Plot evil over champagne cocktail and slurp maliciously.
Lesson 2: Blond coif, blue eye shadow and pale pink shoulder pads are NOT bad ideas. Especially when combined.
A lot of people pine over Isabella Rossellini’s performance as Perdita Durango, because, well, she’s hot:
BUT…Diane Ladd. The fashion explosion that is Diane Ladd as Marietta Fortune. Golly.
Lesson 3: A bit Dolly Parton, a bit Balmain.
Lesson 4: When you know it, pose it.
Lesson 5: Neon versions of colors are better than plebian hues.
(I notice that David Lynch’s women are always wearing the brightest, most matte reds, pinks and oranges in makeup)
Lesson 6: When you take your hair down at night, make sure it grows another 2 feet or more.
Lesson 7: Occasionally, completely lose your shit. Go bonkers. With lipstick.
Especially when you find out your daughter has cut out to California with her Sailor.
Lesson 8: Never forget your inner Wicked Witch.
Okay, now for fun:
