Read the title, now think of all the ladies you admire. I would hedge a bet that 99% of the ladies you pictured were wearing pearls!
Hey even Lady Gaga wears pearls!!!
One lady that really mixed things up was Baroness Thatcher, then Margaret Thatcher.
While being told that her hats would have to go as well as her pearls and that her voice was too high for politics, she responded with…”I may be persuaded to surrender the hat. The pearls, however, are absolutely non-negotiable!”
The film, The Iron Lady, directed by Phyllida Lloyd, starring Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, and Richard E Grant, to name a few, follows the life of Baroness Thatcher from the start of her political career. This film will be released on December 16th 2011.
Another dynamic woman in history was Cleopatra. She is recorded to have eaten a pearl in front of Mark Anthony in a display of wealth and power.
