how did the women in the mafia dress and how was their hair and makeup?
this is for a character class project and my character is a "Tortured mafia Princess"
Go to your local library, and look up some books. There is Mafia Wife by Lynda Milito, or Born to the mob by Frankie Saggio. They actually dressed just like anybody else of their time, just a great deal more expensively! They could afford the best designers. They also wore a lot of jewellery. It was a matter of pride for the "Don" of the particular household that his wife and daughters were dressed well. It gave him "Status" to be seen as treating his family "well" by the way they dressed.
Hope this helps you.
