1. Marilyn Monroe
She was everything and anything in my opinion. Gorgeous, seductive, innocent, simple and complex. My favorite movie of hers is a tie between "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "How to Marry a Millionaire".
2. Vivien Leigh
I always think of one word when I see pictures of her: flawless. Her performance as Blanche in "A Streetcar Named Desire" is amazing and tragic.
3. Katharine Hepburn
She was gorgeous, didn't take crap from nobody and was F-U-N-N-Y. If you haven't seen "Bringing Up Baby" you are missing out!
4. Rosalind Russell
She was fabulous and I absolutely fell in love with her when I saw "Auntie Mame". (Her clothes alone in that movie make it worth watching! lol)
5. Lucille Ball
Ummm...yeah, betcha you didn't see this one coming! ;) Funny, gorgeous and an amazing sense of timing that never failed. She's perfect in "Stage Door".
So that's my five! I of course have so many more: Audrey Hepburn, Betty Grable, Esther Williams, June Allyson, Jane Powell, Ava Gardner, Jane Russell, Ann Miller, I could literally go on and on!
But I won't...
