Although Rita Hayworth was a natural beauty who arrived in Hollywood to enhancer her dancing career, Hollywood had some pretty strict standards for its would be stars. She was immediately given parts that displayed her talents as a dancer which branched into some minor acting roles. Rita was beautiful but looked chubby and lacked sculpt and definition on camera. The studio went to work to find ways of improving her appearance. She was ordered to go on a diet and quickly lost 20 pounds. Her hairline was her biggest flaw.

Her other flaw was her slightly lower right eye. The studio drew attention away from her uneven eyes by adding a few extra eyelashes that were extra long and flared upward, to the corner of her left eye. Her flaw was never noticed.
