Happy Birthday Sharon! Drew Barrymore Channels Sharon Tate and In Defense of Roman Polanski

Happy Birthday to our wonderful Sharon in heaven!

Other significant things that happened on this day in history:

I noticed the above link says that Tess star Nastassja Kinski also has a birthday!  Happy Birthday to you!


Drew Barrymore and Sharon Tate?

Drew Barrymore Channels a 60s starlet

Drew Barrymore's '60s bouffant and pale makeup were inspired by Brigitte Bardot and Sharon Tate, two references the actress gave makeup artist Debra Ferullo when creating the overall look to compliment her midnight-blue Monique Lhuillier dress.

To get the look, Ferullo used Cover Girl clean liquid makeup and Simply Ageless blush in Plush Peach. To the eyes, layers of Dior Show mascara were applied along with Cover Girl Shadow Blast in Bronze Fire and Silver Sky. For that perfectly frosty, pale pink lip, Ferullo used Dior Addict lip color in Beige Negligee and Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Jersey Pink.

Frosty pink gloss, a silvery smoky eye along with that teased and twisted up-do, Barrymore looked like she stepped straight out the '60s.

Another defender of Polanski:

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


  1. Happy Birthday to Sharon and Nastassja, too! Definitely a special day. It's cool that younger generations look to Sharon for inspiration. In this case,free spirited Drew Barrymore. And look, she won a SAG award.

  2. How neat that Nastassja Kinski has the same birthday as Sharon. Talk about being right for the part of Tess !!!
    I think that is really cool :)
