male disguises: Shakespeare in Love

Shakespeare in Love

Viola De Lesseps (Gwyneth Paltrow) disguises herself as Master Thomas Kent to become an actor in this wonderful movie. As a young man playing female role young Master Kent is intended to appear a little effeminate but there is one moment when Shakespeare should have noticed there was a little more to it.

The makeup

Tina Earnshaw designed Gwyneth Paltrow’s makeup in the movie: Lisa Westcott was the film’s hair and makeup designer and Veronica Brebner was senior hair and makeup artist.
