"I feel sorry for [Lolita]. She's neurotic and pathetic and only interested in herself."- Sue Lyon

I really like this picture because it's not often that you see Sue Lyon looking soft and pretty. She's usually very campy.

"Sex appeal is 50% what you've got and 50% what people think you've got."- Sophia Loren

She's a rare breed. If one of her features were changed she'd almost be unattractive or strange looking. But she's absolutely stunning. It's hard not to stare.

Romola Garai

I tried my hardest to find a color shot of her since my past two posts have been in black and white but this really was the only picture I could find of her. The color shots were beautiful but they were mostly just great photography, not portraits. I just saw her in the BBC adaption of Emma and she had such charisma and wit and spunk that I wanted a picture that could show all of that. I like that she isn't bogged down by heavy makeup or props.

Merry Lily

Lily Elsie absolutely gorgeous. Then again every woman from the Edwardian Era was. They didn't seem to try as hard. Yes, they wore extravagant clothes and hairstyles but they had an unkempt look about them as well. Their eyebrows were thick, their hair was not dyed or drowned in product and their figures were not sculpted. There's something beautiful about a women who's comfortable.

Gypsy Rose

"You get tough in this business, until you get big enough to hire people to get tough for you. Then you can sit back and be a lady."- Natalie Wood

 I love that she was so driven. She never seemed to compromise and she went after the roles she wanted. She was always seeking to show the talent behind the pretty face.
