|Platinum Bombshell Jean Harlow|
First up is Jean Harlow. She started out playing "trampy" roles but soon her comedic timing got her roles in many of the screwball comedies of the era. Her life was cut short at the young age of 26. During her hey-day millions of women dyed their hair to match her platinum blonde locks.
|Dig those eyebrows!!|
|Very early before she dyed her hair platinum. Stunning dress!|
|Jean at her height of fame!|
|How gorgeous is this gown!! The belt is amazing!|
|Her eyes are mesmerizing.|
|I love this lounging outfit!|
|I love the jeweled accents on the straps. Simple yet fetching.|
Barbara Stanwyck was everyone's favorite gun moll in the 1930's. Bit of trivia--she was very longwaisted so the costume designers always designed her outfits with some kind of seaming or belt or such at the waist to make her look more proportionate.
|I adore this hat.|
|Notice the metallic trimming at the waist.|
|Sequins and pom-poms--how could this gown NOT be fantastic??|
|I love the print on this dress|
|This dress would be dazzling today on the red carpet.|
|I love this dress with the capelet and the giant bow. Note Joan's eyebrows are thin here.|
|Love the bow detail at the waist and shoulder|
|Another stunning gown.|
|The famous cigarrette scene from Now, Voyager.|
|Polka dots and a cute hat made for Spring!|
|You can see how the designer seamed and draped the bustline here.|
|Love the detailing and draping of this.|
|I want this dress!! The print is wonderful!|
|I love the earrings!|
|The dress is marvelous and I want her hairdo!!|
|Another gorgeous bia-cut dress with back detailing.|
|This dress looks like it stepped of a Paris runway yesterday.And how can you go wrong with a mink??|
