Confessions of a Joan Crawford Fanatic
Apologies to Dina Lohan for saying she didn't look "motherly" enough in that picture. From the dozens of new mothers I've been around, the general pattern seemed to be a definite "toning down," and gladly so. A chance to be real and relaxed and natural and not have to get all made up like you're up for a night on the town (a phoniness that most women have already had enough of by the time they get married and have a kid). I dunno---I saw this shot and I immediately thought only that she was all got up that way only to please her husband, Michael Lohan. Seeing a mom with her baby that decked out was somehow depressing to me. Looking at the shot, it didn't feel like what a woman would normally want to look like at that stage in her life.
