If you are a ‘’fashion freak’’ and you think you know everything about fashion, think again. There are many things you don’t know! For example, there are many interesting facts from history that are related to fashion. The first and my favorite involves eyebrows. Imagine yourself without them, you will look weird! But, look at Mona Lisa, the most famous masterpiece of Renaissance she doesn’t have eyebrows!
