Old school glamour

Do you know what I miss? Glamour I'm talking 1930 -1940's movie glamour. We know that it's made a comback in interiors (hollywood regency, mirrored furniture, Miles Redd ) but what about in personal style? Even movie stars go to walmart in flipflops and baggy sweatpants. You never saw Grace Kelly or Fred Astaire go ANYWHERE in either of those items ( and I'm sure they'd prefer Target to Walmart anyway! ).
That is why I love Dita Von Tease. She may be the burlesque queen but she has STYLE in spades, even while stripping I'm sure. Just to prove my point, these are pictures of her out and about -some candid shots and some from special events. Total knock-out, knock-down GLAMOUR ( I'm not screaming, it just deserves all CAPS ). You just know she has a beautiful mirror-encrusted decadent bathroom ala. Miles Redd and a huge paneled walk in closet.



Maybe we don't all need to walk around totally 'done' -but no more grubbiness ok, take some time with your appearance! Life is too short to be so ugly!





If Dita is too old-fashioned for you - we'll always have Posh!

Amen! I saw a female starlet here in Atlanta recently (who shall remain anonymous!), and I was shocked at her appearance- dirty, stringy hair; dirty torn jeans; dirty tennis shoes; no makeup. You would not have seen this 30-40 years ago!

Stef, you know that I always agree with you. DVT is the only modern day glamour girl, well with the exception of me : )

No wonder I like you. I love glamour and have always been intrigued by it.
I have all the same photos, even spice girl. She's my kinda "soccer" mom.

Ya, posh spice is a fun 'soccer mom' type -thats such a good diagnosis! I like that she seems like such a good mom, unlike so many hollywood types.

I could not agree more...although I'm not sure I'd put posh in the same category as Dita!

I wasn't comparing the 2, suzy -more pointing out that posh is just a sort of modern-day glamour girl. I could have used Paris Hilton as well I guess....but....well -chose not to for obvious reasons
