Standards of beauty in American society may not have changed much over time, but we believe that beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. And what's more beautiful than a woman who confidently owns her uniqueness? Not much from what we see in this 1989 Revlon commercial.
The ad features women of all ages and backgrounds, like Joan Rivers, The Pointer Sisters, Bernadette Peters and Sally Kellerman answering the question, "What makes a woman unforgettable?" For once, we'd have to agree with Rivers when she blurts out "that she can reach 50 and not care." And we absolutely adore Peters' response: "Her mind, surrounded by lots of naturally curly hair."
And even though Revlon is clearly pushing their nail polish in this 30-something second spot, we don't mind because in between flashes of supermodel Linda Evangelista's slick red manicure and matching lipstick we get these refreshing takes on the true meaning of beauty.
