核心句型:
She is showing her true colors.

她终于原形毕露了。

show one's true color 直译过来就是:“露出……真正的颜色”。据说当年英国舰队航于海上时,为避开法国逡巡船队的注意,就升起法国旗帜伪装是自家人,等到关键时刻就改旗易色,显露本色。于是产生了show one's true colors 这个习语,意为“亮出自己的真正旗帜,原形毕露,显露真面目”。因此,当美国人说"She is showing her true colors."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"She is unmasked."、"She is showing the cloven hoof."。

情景对白:

Benjamin: She is always speaking ill of her partner.

本杰明:她总在背后说搭档的坏话。

Terry: Yeah, she is showing her true color. She is totally a wolf in sheep's clothing.

泰瑞:是的,她终于原形毕露了,她就是一个口蜜腹剑的人。

搭配句积累:
①I was stupid enough to believe her.

我真蠢,竟然相信她。

②I felt the deepest respect for her skill at dissembling.

我真佩服她的掩饰技巧。

③We should draw a lesson here: do not trust appearances; they are often false.

我们应该吸取教训:不要相信外表,外表常常是假象。

④Her seeming friendliness was merely a disguise.

她表面的友好都是伪装的。
