Throughout the years I've been told I resemble a number of blonde female celebs, including Cameron Diaz, Uma Thurman, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Although these are all very flattering to hear, my mother and I actually think that I most resemble, and appropriately so, a famous gal from the past: Mary Travers of the group Peter, Paul and Mary. In fact, yesterday we watched a great documentary about the trio on PBS and we were both struck by how Mary looked like me when she was younger. When I look at myself in the mirror sometimes and the lighting is just right and I'm making a certain expression, I see Mary, too.
I went through some old photos and the ones that were taken at a friend's wedding a few years ago seemed to look like her the most. I Photoshopped a few together for comparison - close, no?
I even have Mary's side profile, especially her nose, although I couldn't find any good side profiles of me to compare. I love my bob, but maybe I should grow my hair out a bit longer. Now if only I could SING like Mary! Better yet, how cool would it be to meet a guy who looked like someone famous from the 60s...hmmm....I'll take a John Sebastian lookalike these days. We could be the cutest retro couple ever!
