Abundant Beauty by Alice Simpson

Abundant Beauty by Alice Simpson

Developing sculptural works like Dolly Dimples has been the antithesis of the early works of Alice Simpson as a fashion illustrator and graphic designer. She worked with companies like Estee Lauder, Revlon, Max Factor and Helena Rubenstein, and fashion magazines which establish norms of what is beautiful. Within the realm of 'street' and circus, she searches for a darker, less conventional beauty, contradicting the mainstream, hoping to occasionally challenge the norms of acceptance and comfort. These images can be viewed as metaphors as they relate to issues of Hunger. Dolly Dimples, Celesta Geyer (née Herrmann), born 1901, died 1982, was billed as "The World's Prettiest Fat Girl" and "The World's Most Beautiful Fat Lady." Her skin, "was like that of a Dresden china doll," flawless and smooth except for the dimples that inspired her name, which were an inch deep at each elbow. Though nearly sixty when she ended her sideshow career, there wasn't a wrinkle on her face. Nor did she lose her hourglass figure. At her peak, she had a 68-inch waist and 84-inch hips, balanced by a 74 1/2 inch bust - impressive for a woman barely five feet tall. At her top weight --555 pounds.

The "Priscilla" in this movie is the pink bus that carries three transsexuals across the wilds of the Australian desert. Encountering bigotry, fashion emergencies and transportation issues along the way, the three eventually have their day in the sun (the stage, that is.) Funny and touching, the characters gently require you to open your mind and enjoy the ride.

THe kind of movie that makes you sigh afterwards and feel full of exuberance and life. Priscilla is about 3 Australian drag queens (and one of them is played perfectly by Guy Pearce/ Memento) on a road trip. Along their journey the stop and performed form local audiences with a mixed reception. This movie is outstanding! And the soundtrack is great too.
