I know this movie has been out a couple of months already, and I haven't seen it yet, but I've seen the previews and pictures and I love the wardrobe and hair. It takes place in my favorite era, the 1940's, so of course I love it. I don't usually go for the whole military look, but I like to add pieces of it in my wardrobe and make my own look. A nice white long sleeved crisp chirt, or a military jacket for example. I'm aiming to get an affordable dark brown leather jacket (like the one in the picture below) for this fall. I made a little set on Polyvore for more ideas (see below)
Yolanda Ivonne Móntes Farrington, born January 3, 1932 is an exotic dancer and actress of Mexican films (from the late 40's-80's). She's artistically known as "Tongolele". I first saw a drawing of her that someone did on flickr and really liked it, so then I looked up her name and found a few pictures of her (there doesn't seem to be many pictures of her). I'm just amazed at her stunning beauty. Those eyes and hair and that body! Oh and I found a few videos of her on youtube.
She's alive and well today and still looks good!
Today marks the 49th death anniversary of Marilyn Monroe. As a fan of hers since I was 11, she's never far from my thoughts. I first saw her in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and I was blown away. She was my first inspiration of what beautiful, feminine, glamorous and sexy should be. She was my first vintage love. She's the reason I started wearing red lipstick at age 16 and I still do today (not telling my age though!) I thank her for all that she gave us.
