Beauty Inspiration of December: Pan Am TV Series Characters

I am sorry that I haven’t really been  posting for the last several days, I did not have time to schedule posts ahead and  some things were not working out unfortunately. But, hopefully, I’ll manage to post as usual soon.

Today I want to tell you about the TV show that really inspired me beauty-wise. And it is called Pan Am.  To tell the truth, sometimes I can watch a show to look at the makeup and fashion mostly. Luckily, this is not the case, and I actually do enjoy the characters and the plot which is not too complicated or hard to follow. Exactly what you need after a hard day to relax.

There are four leading female characters: Kate,  Maggie, Colette, and Laura. As the main point of this post is to show you some of their looks and outfits, I won’t get into the details about the characters and plot lines. But I thought I would include  what is written about each girl.

Kate

‘Competitive by nature, Kate has lived in the shadow of her younger sister, Laura, all of her life. Kate rebelled against the life that chosen for her, that of a wife, a mother and instead spread her own wings to fly.’

I know that  a lot of people like Kate’s sister Laura(and she is nice and pretty), but I love Kate. She is so beautiful and elegant and I just love Kate and Niko ;)

I would love to know the name of the lipstick that is in the middle, how gorgeous does it look?

Maggie

‘Maggie has struggled all her life to better her standing in the world. Ambition runs through her veins and now that she’s reached Pan Am, she has no intention of looking back.’

I love Christina Ricci andI think she is a perfect Meggie…

 Colette

‘Colette is the best friend you could ever have: empathetic; non-judgmental; tough when she has to be. Having lost her parents in World War II, she’s haunted by a sense of loss, a hole that cannot be filled. Her search for fulfillment sometimes results in bad decisions, notably those of a romantic nature.’

Colette is lovely, friendly, elegant and she is French…

Laura

‘Laura, that pretty girl from high school; sweet, intelligent, well meaning. But oblivious to her own charms; she often unwittingly leaves a trail of heartbreak behind her. As the newest member of our Pan Am crew, Laura’s enthusiasm and curiosity abound.’

Can you believe that Margot Robbie, the  actress in from the 1990?!

So do you watch Pan Am? Who is your favourite character? Does it inspire you as much as myself? And don’t you just love the makeup?

  3. I LOVE Pan Am, for the plot as well as for the beauties in it. I really hope it doesn’t get cancelled after just one season.
    I did read that Margot Robbie is 21 indeed but the pics I saw of her from outside of the series weren’t pretty, think orange tan and trashy look :( It made me a bit sad.

    The original lipstick (supposedly worn in real life by Pan Am ladies- though I am sure it didn’t suit everyone) was Revlon Shade #585 ‘Persian Melon’. You can still buy it now. I believe they have a lipstick line in gold cases, there’s a coral which looks very similar to the one Kate has on in the green evening gown.

    I like Pan Am primarily because of the dresses and the makeup. I love Laura and Kate’s makeup. Kate’s dresses are always just beautiful. Colette is my favorite character and I find her the most likeable among them. I’m not liking Christina Ricci’s character, Maggie, that much. But Christina herself is sexy. She’s got a small waist. =_=
