Look at this picture of legendary film starlet, Jean Harlow. I came across it today doing some work for a client and it literally stopped me dead in my tracks. She looks absolutely, well, I’m not sure what the word is to define how she looks. I’m sure you’ll agree that to call her beautiful hardly does her justice. Which is why I think we should retire the word, at least for today. Challenge yourself to expand your every-shrinking vocabulary. To get you started, here are some “beautiful” alternatives:
alluring; bewitching; captivating; dazzling; enchanting; foxy; glittering; hot; mesmerizing; pulchritudinous; radiant; ravishing; resplendent; showstopping; striking; stunning.
How would you describe how Jean Harlow, the Blonde Bombshell, looks in this picture?
