Cut Video's 100 Years of Beauty is back, this time with world beauty and fashion icon, Italy. In Italia, it's been all about the drama since the beginning: intricate up-dos and bold red lips in the 1910s, and a heavy brow and pout in the 1920s. Even the 1940s, which saw a shift toward clean faces and simple braided hairstyles because of World War II, was effortlessly chic. One of my favorites is hands down the Missoni-inspired deep green eye shadow and orange lip of the seventies that brought color back to post-war Europe (don't forget that wildcat hair). The look I want to recreate right now? That eighties gold glam à la Versace. The looks are classic from there, with the early 2000s and 2010s harking back to vintage, whimsical hair of divas from the past like Sophia Loren and Monica Vitti.
