While the sub-heading of this work's title (which is " A Trivial Comedy for Serious People") gave me the impression that it was about a young kid's learning of morals and good values, The Importance of Being Earnest, is a comedy that poked fun on Victorian manners. The story was about this guy named John Worthing, who at the start, the reader comes to know as Ernest.
Cecily is the daughter of Sir Thomas Cardew, the man who adopted John. Like most eighteen year olds, Cecily loves to have fun. She also has this thing for bad boys, and so by her imaginative mind has created an elaborate story of her engagement with the wicked “Ernest”. The secluded estate she’s been living in might be the reason why she would probably wear urban garments paired with classic feminine pieces. It is likely however, that if she attempts to wear anything really outrageous (which ideally suits her personally very well), Miss Prism the governess might be out to disallow her from even reaching the house exit.
Gwendolyn is Lady Bracknell’s daughter and John’s fiancée. A prominent quality of Gwendolyn is her finesse. She is sophisticated and bears the qualities of a London socialite. Much like her mom, she is opinionated and mindful of social responsibilities as a part of a social rank. She will always be in heels and wearing anything tailored. Oh and one more thing, you will likely see her in at least one designer number.
