Flowers named after most beautiful women

Flowers named after most beautiful women. White rose “Jeanne Moreau”

Flowers named after most beautiful women

There are women whose beauty inspires gardeners and florists to give their names to most beautiful flowers. This white rose is named after the French actress Jeanne Moreau. A star, a woman, and a national figure, Jeanne Moreau exemplifies the ideal of the French film actress in the post–New Wave era. Though overshadowed in mass media by such stars as Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve, in the French film industry, she embodied French femininity for a generation of film lovers. Moreau took a substantial risk in choosing to work with young, relatively unknown directors in the late 1950s and the 1960s. Throughout her career, she made choices that reflected her sense of cinema as an art and, as a result, she is universally respected for her professionalism and commitment. One film with her participation in the main role impressed me greatly. For American audience it is known as “Elevator to the Gallows”, and for the British viewers it is “Lift to the Scaffold”.
