Divas Beyond a Veil.

Mistero, ambiguità e seduzione sono peculiarità che appartengono a molte tra le star del cinema. Da sempre, e con molta frequenza, la loro immagine conturbante è amplificata grazie all’utilizzo di veli che ricoprono il volto, conferendo carisma e magnetismo.

Il drappo di una veste, per merito del cinema e della fotografia, ha perso la funzione di mero rivestimento del corpo per esibire lo stesso con sensualità, svelandolo in segreto. Non più tessuto utile a coprire, bensì pizzo, rete, seta adoperati per svestire i soggetti fotografati, lasciando immaginare allo spettatore fattezze, carattere, atmosfere inattese e maliziose.

Lo sguardo dell’icona giunge a noi filtrato dal lembo di un tessuto prezioso, la cui grana seduce e mantiene le distanze dal piacere accennato, che resta in ombra.

Ecco alcune immagini che ho raccolto.

************

Often the provocative image of Diva is amplified by the use of veils that cover her face, conferring charme and mistery. Thanks to the cinema and photography, this garment lost its only function of dress to exhibit the body with sensuality, unveiling a secret. No more useful fabrics to cover, but lace, net, silk used to undress the actress in movies and pictures, leaving viewers to imagine the features, character, atmospheres.
