Yeah--I always loved the bit where Julia complacently tells Gwendolen that it 
must be a bother to look like Gwendolen does--like a china doll, I believe it 
was.  I also loved that Milly was the living incarnation of the glorious 
Asheth, and looked totally undivine. . ..

Of course, Julia and Roger seemed to be rather powerful (given their parents 
x_x), and maybe looking comfortable is easier when you've got power to back it 

lizzie, who always liked Julia, too. . ..
