The Wonder of Egypt

January 30, 2013


Pictures by Fernando Prasetyo

EGYPT. After watching and reading about Egypt history, I found that they have amazing cultures. Of course, based on fashion, the one I adore the most is Queen of Egypt - Cleopatra. Until now, she was one of the most famous and powerful women in world history.

Cleopatra was always portrayed as a woman of great beauty, an idea that is given weight by her successful conquests of the world's most powerful men. Some might say that is true, but opinions from an Ancient Greek historian Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus would suggest otherwise.


"For her beauty, as we are told, was in itself not altogether incomparable, nor such as to strike those who saw her; but converse with her had an irresistible charm, and her presence, combined with the persuasiveness of her discourse and the character which was somehow diffused about her behaviour towards others, had something stimulating about it. There was sweetness also in the tones of her voice; and her tongue, like an instrument of many strings, she could readily turn to whatever language she pleased..."

Plutarch, Life of Antony (XXVII)



According to him, her beauty was found in her wit, charm, and the sweetness in tones of her voice. Along with him, another noted historian Cassius Dio also mentioning about her charming voice and her amazing knowledge of how to make herself agreeable to everyone.

Judging on ancient Egyptians coins, she had large and a-bit-crooked nose with prominent chin. Because of that, it seemed like her beauty and her charm was in the way she presented herself, rather than the way she really looked.



Does it really matter? No. But we can learn one thing, true beauty not only come from the outside appearance, but from the inside and the way we presenting ourselves to other people. These kind of beauty would never fade, never grow old, but would forever remain in people's heart.

She might be in the highest position and influence a lot of people, while we are not. But, for me, I just want to start making a difference with people around me - especially to dearest Fernando and my family. And, THIS is my New Year Resolutions. One of them - I mean (Yeah, I have a lot of them! LOL).






I know! This is a pretty long background talk for my today post theme, but I just want to share it with you, guys! Egypt is the theme, so these pair of leggings that I bought from Black Milk Clothing are the most suitable ones!


I am proudly saying that I'm one of the sharkies, that really love Black Milk's products! I bought A LOT, and will post in one by one. If you keep following my blog, you will know that having their leggings is one of my July wish list. I know! It's been such a long time ago, but finally, I have them! Although I'm not really happy with the customs+FedEx charge, but maybe this is a story for another time or else I will keep ranting. LOL.


A few short things that I want to say about their leggings are amazing prints, super tight and sexy, making my legs look slimmer. Yeah, I love them, however they are a little bit too pricey for me. I have to save up first, before buying. But still, I keep wanting for more. I guess, JL is really brainwashing me. >.<

Have you ever bought from them? Tell me about your opinions! :)

  5. let's not forget that in those days having a big nose was considered beautiful! Both ancient Romans and Greeks admired big noses! Kleopatra was of Greek origin, her dynasty was founded by the Great Alexandar's generals. So that was probably one thing about her they considered very attractive. However, I believe that what was most attractive about her were hers brains. After all, someone like Cezar could have had as many women as he liked, but there was probably something special about her that charmed him, something that went beyond her looks:)

    You look great btw!

  7. "true beauty not only come from the outside appearance, but from the inside and the way we presenting ourselves to other people. These kind of beauty would never fade, never grow old, but would forever remain in people's heart."

    I love your statement! I totally agree with it! :D
    and you totally make me want to learn more about cleopatra. You should give me book references, okay? hehe..


    And btw, i love your leggings! :D i have lots of printed leggings, and they surely made me addicted..:3 and i really want your shoes! (≧∇≦) have been eyeing for that shoes, but it's hard to find one with my big size..huhu..

  11. As a child I was fascinated of the Egypt Culture. Of course Cleopatra was my Egypt Idol xD I was really proud (even though I shouldn't had to be) when my classroom teacher looked amazed at me and told me that I look like Cleopatra (because of the eyeliner).. I think I might have over done it that day. I also heard about her "ugly" nose but someone told me there might be a reason why she was portrayed like this, was because a big crooked nose meant power. The coins were the only way some people of her kingdom would have seen the face of their leader. That's how she enforced power.
    Your leggings are simple stunning! Lovely outfit ;)
