So far, Cecilia has made her opinions known in our Janeite conversations, showed us that P&P is always on beat, and shared some delicious Austen kisses (ooh, scandalous!) -- but today. . . today, she's starting a war.
That's right, she's taking over Friday Face Off and asking our very own Austen gals to duke it out (via you, so get your (fancy, kid) gloves on) to find out who's the best of the best at doing what they do.
Weird as what they do may be. . .
If you're new to Misty's blog, Friday Face Off is her version Who Wore It Better, and we're going to do it Austen Style!
Below are two sets of images, representing three of Austen's heroines. Images on the top are from British television adaptations. Images on the bottom are from studio films.
There is no preset criteria – judge by who looks the part best, who you like the most, who is closest to your ideal, whatever and however you think that Austen's characters should be judged.
Vote for your favorite on the comments!
Round I: Elizabeth Bennet, looking wistful at the Ball in white
Round II: Emma Woodhouse, looking quite smugly into the camera
Round III: Marianne Dashwood, looking bedraggled and depressed in the rain
Vote by letting us know your pick, in whichever way works for you (top/bottom; BBC/Hollywood; actress' name)!
