They let me get away with a smack on the wrist and I respect that very much.
My mother keeps telling me to think before I do or say something, and make sure it's what I really want to project.
In one of the more controversial snapshots, she's seen shooting milk on her face from a cow's udder (try to imagine the Got Milk? "That campaign definitely caused some drama in my life," she says.
"Maybelline would like me to keep myself contained and ladylike and they're right.
A 23-year-old [she is now 25], 5' 6" California-born woman, Maran has the confidence to face the world looking perfectly unadorned and natural (she came to our photo shoot...straight out of bed! "I think the emphasis on cleanliness is very much an American tradition," explains Kathy Peiss, author of Hope in a Jar: The Making of America's Beauty Culture (Owl Books). Maran is living proof that feeling beautiful can have as much to do with your mind as with your mirror.
"American women make up their faces to have a clean look." And unlike the blond-haired, blue-eyed standard popular in the seventies--"That's when the American images was actually Swedish," laughs Ford--today there isn't one look that represents a national fantasy. When an emergency appendectomy at age 12 left her with a big abdominal scar, Maran tried to keep it out of sight. Now I don't even try to hide it anymore--my scar is part of me." And happily, she's not the only American beauty with that I-love-myself-warts-and-all attitude.
Now it's more about the way you feel and function than just the way you look."Looking glamorous is a state of mind, not just the state of your makeup, insists New York City makeup artist Charlie Green: "American women don't go for an exaggerated look when they go out, whereas French women won't leave home without red lipstick." And morphing from Girl Next Door to Gorgeous is surprisingly simple.
"Women know that putting your hair up is like slipping on a pair of high heels--it instantly makes you feel sexy and dressed up," says New York City hairstylist Colin Gold.
"When I saw the finished version, I was freaked out and didn't want to watch it," she laughs. But it's a funny movie and the laughter eased the pain.
"Those photos didn't feel sexual when we were shooting them.
When I look at the pictures now, I can see that it's a little too much, but I believe in pushing the limit a bit. For starters," she laughs, "No more hugging pigs." That's easier said than done, especially with Maran making the move to Hollywood.
"An American beauty is a woman who looks fresh and healthy," explains Ford.
"She might be wearing makeup, but it looks completely natural." Green agrees: "American women take care of their skin--the last thing they want to do is hide it under a lot of foundation." Maran doesn't need layers of eyeshadow or yards of frills to feel beautiful. (Thanks to her grin, she's landed on six Glamour covers.) "Smiling is very American," explains author Peiss.
