  1. 1. Dorothy Dandridge
    2. Ava Gardner
    3. Audrey Hepburn
    4. Marilyn Monroe
    5. Elizabeth Taylor

  2. Why not include Jane Fonda? She was part of the same era as Natalie Wood and just as beautiful.

  3. @dinarama1980 Right. I'm not sure why Liza Minnelli was included. She was or is not considered a beauty, not even by her own mother.

  4. You know what I loved about the women from Classic Hollywood? Not one of those women look the same. They all have different features that separate themselves from one another. The women today all look the same from their botox faces to the hairstyles the wear. They even have the same cheek implants and the same silicone lips. That's one thing that separates the women from Hollywood back then to now. Also they seem more private and handled themselves better in public than many stars of today.

  5. Can't believe you forgot Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland. Living legends they are. Loveliness they are. Talent they are.

  6. You got them all, well done. Classy and sexy at the same time. I cannot tell you what a service you did for an old dog like me to see the faces I remember from the movies and fell in love with.

  7. Nicely done. But isn't it amazing how the eye makeup on the more modern starlets looks ghastly as compared to the stars from the 40's and early 50's. Subtlety seems to have flown out the window in some instances. Still, a fascinating comparison of stars then and now. Thank you.

  8. divine. loved it. so happy you included Barbra.
    Marlene, Garbo, Crawford divine. Missed Hedy and Ann-Margret. But you got my two modern faves Pfieffer and Kidman.
