Remember the stylish people of the past, we loved nothing more than to see those we idolised in a magazine or on TV screen and we would be in awe! They were sexy and oozing style!
Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford, Steve McQueen (the ‘King of Cool’), to name a few.
Movie stars and starlets dressed to impress, providing us with our ‘daily dose of eye candy’! We couldn’t get enough.
My two all time favourites, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, wow! I still to this day don’t tire of seeing and reading articles about them. I am no expert on their lives I am just more intrigued by their stories. Sixty one years ago Elvis Presley released Heartbreak Hotel, I wasn’t even born then but 10 to 15 years later I was listening to that song and many more of Elvis’ records. His dark smouldering looks and piercing blue eyes, coupled with his voice and his moves! Who couldn’t fall in love with Elvis?
Marilyn with her childlike voice, blonde hair, bombshell drop dead looks and body; she was gorgeous! I so love to see a black and white shot of her; some show a sultry confident actress and others capture a shy, less confident young lady who seems lost, what do you think she was looking for? I wish she had found it maybe then she wouldn’t have died so young!
Hollywood seemed the place to be born; you could have been an actress or actor, partying and fun times were the image…..it always had appeal, the Hollywood lifestyle glamorous, romantic and full of wealthy people having fun times…..! We all know this wasn’t exactly how it went but hey, the nostalgia.
Who were your favourites and why? Would love to hear.
