So I like to check my favorite magazine websites daily to see if anything new and exciting is going on in the fashion world. Usually there is! With the recent death of Liz Taylor, recognized as the last living classic Hollywood star, British Vogue takes a look back at some of the most glamorous and talented stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
As a blogger who dedicates part of the blog at remembering and praising some of Hollywood’s beauties, I love that Vogue, the most established fashion magazine, is also acknowledging them as well! Their beauty, poise, and elegance is never outdated and their iconic styles are always coming back into fashion.
Here are some of my favorites who made the London Vogue List:
Lauren Bacall: Not to be mixed up with Lucille Ball, Lauren married Humphrey Bogart and even dated Frank Sinatra after her husbands death. She is most known for her role in The Big Sleep which she is cast alongside her Bogart in a romantic crime movie.
Marilyn Monroe: No list is complete without her, Grace Kelly, or Audrey Hepburn. Marilyn’s famous vent scene in which her white dress flies up is from The Seven Year Iche a comedy about a Geeky older man who believes he has a shot at getting his next door neighbor, Marilyn, to sleep with him. Although she may be America’s number one sex symbol her tragic death and recently uncovered personal diaries reveal that she wanted to be much more than just a blond bombshell.
Mae West: As a star of the 1930s Mae was one of the most controversial sex symbols of her time. She also has some of the most witty sexual one liners in Hollywood. Some of her famous lines are “When I’m good, I’m very good. But when I’m bad I’m even better,” “I’m a woman of very few words, but lots of action,” “I’ve been on more laps than a napkin,” and “love conquers all things, except poverty and a toothache.” A very smart woman indeed! Although I don’t think she is the most beautiful, I think she is a woman who defied conventionalism of her time, and her spirit transgresses her looks.
Ginger Rogers: Any person who doesn’t enjoy Top Hat must be a fool! Back in the 1930s Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire were a duo made in Hollywood heaven. Their tap dancing musical romantic comedies are timeless and without a doubt entertaining fun!
