I often mourn the passing of the traditional grace and beauty which once flourished, dreaming of the golden days when women were demure, elegant and classy, shimmering with subtly inferred sex appeal without resorting to garishly displaying their wares for all the world to see.
But i am here to tell you that glamour, although ailing, is not quite dead yet for that rare and precious pearl can still be found if one is lucky enough, as the divine Nicola Roberts ever more graciously proves.
It must take a kind of courage in daring to be glamorous in this age of mindless vulgarity because a woman exposes herself first and foremost to the ridicule and cattiness of her peers and if one doesn't go into it wholeheartedly she risks falling flat on her face.
It may be that men down the years have not fully appreciated their glamorous women or that women have simply become wary of their own femininity as if it's something to be slightly ashamed of but i would hold up Miss Roberts as a fine example of modern womanhood, a girl who boldly dares to fully embrace the art of glamour!
I've already gushingly said that She has blossomed into an absolute Goddess as her confidence and self-assurance grow with each passing day and is quite simply drop-dead gorgeous, wonderfully stylish and a hypnotic magnet to the eye, in my earlier post Orange Blossom Angel and each new picture i see only strengthens my feeling.
