  18. Pick me... Pick me! I am your biggest fan, Brittany. I have followed your career since the early years when you were working for scale as an extra in Cecil B. Demille ictures.

    My favorite is Joan Crawford, without a doubt. If the rumors are true and she did sleep her way to the top it only makes me like her more.

  22. First i must say, i love your blog,and you are such a cutie, i am a curvy girl myself who wears vintage:)

    My favourite vintage beauty is Maila Nurmi(vampira), I know it's a bit diffrent, but ever since i saw her in "plan 9 form outer space" when i was little ( a re-run of course , seeing i am just 20 years old)i fell in love with her darker vintage look. I love her tiny waist, long nails, black hair, and not least, her amazing eyebrows ! i love a woman that can be both sexy and slightly creepy, and look amazing in a simple black dress. And i also LOVE her as a blonde!

    Excuse my bad english, i am from norway:)

    Not sure if my e-mail comes up, because i don't have a blog at blogspot, so here it is: Ingridhestflaatt@hotmail.com

  23. Awesome Giveaway!!!!! I am following your fabulous blog and can't wait to catch up on your old posts!! My favorite vintage beauty would have to be hands down Linda Darnell. but, being that I am a film history major, it's hard to pick just one. :) My close runner-ups would be Joan Crawford and Myrna Loy. I will be posting this giveaway on my blog. Oh, and Inky sent me over!

  24. Fantastic giveaway! I'm playing because I love vintage vanity items - and I want you to tell me the secret of how you refilled a vintage lipstick without making a mess!

    I adore Myrna Loy. She's witty, charming - as easily a vamp as the perfect detective's wife. Her style - both on screen and "off" is inspiring. You can find me at fabgabsvintage.blogspot.com.

    Incidentally, I FINALLY picked up all the goodies I'm sending out as thank yous for my giveaway, and mailing them when I get back from Viva! They ARE coming!

  28. Oh, definitely Rita Hayworth. She's everything I could ever hope to be. I admire the fact that although she though she was incredibly shy, she was still able to put on a brave face and take on the world - not to mention she made for a fierce redhead!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love Natalie Wood, I think I look a bit like her and I dont look like many people! :D

  30. Right now, I am loving Judy Garland! Thank you for taking the time to blog, I love to read these!

  31. What a great giveaway, who could ask for anything better. Everything you need for the perfect look is there and you even refilled a vintage tube of lipstick!

    My favorite vintage icon would be Diana Dors, her exotic look combined with her adorable 1950's clothing and hair. Then there is all the western wear she poses in and how she wears it. Just knocks me dead if I could be like anyone in would be her or Carmen Miranda.

  32. Wow! Thank you so much for giving us the chance to win such wonderful gifts. :)

    My favorite vintage beauty is "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World".... Hedy Lamarr.

  54. I just found your blog thanks to a link from a fellow blogger, and I'm loving it! My favorite vintage beauty is probably Catherine Deneuve. I think she is just so beautiful, and sometimes she makes me wish I had blonde hair! That's saying a lot coming from a girl who's very proud to be a brunette!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Just found your blog whilst looking for apron patterns lol... Congratulations on 100, that's great! My fav vintage actress is Vivian leigh. I've been enamored by her beauty since I was a child watching Gone with the wind. I always thought she extruded charm and beauty. It also helped that she made me proud to have that southern bell accent. (even if she was british in real life)

  56. I'm your newest follower ~ yay! My sister Nancy at Inkcicles blogged about this give away and so I had to pop on over and toss my name in the hat. I love vintage style and I'm going to have to go with Rita Hayworth as my fav.

  63. Those are some pretty irresistible giveaways! I love your blog I'm a subscriber & I too am a "Va- Voom" vintage girl ha ha! I have many vintage beauty heros, but one I would say that really makes an impact for me is actress/singer Carmen Miranda. She was literally a colorful person inside and out. Her personal beauty and fashion have made a lasting impact on the fashion world and she is an icon all over the world! Just recongnize "the lady in the tutti frutti hat"! With Love, Victoria

  65. Marilyn was my go-to growing up, and yes, Audrey is darling, but....

    Doris Day

    I tear up watching her as Calamity Jane, and sing along with her incredible voice listening to Sentimental Journey (which ties with At Last as being my favorite song).

    I'm heading over to my blog to post a link to you right now.

  69. Congratulations on the followers! (growing quickly, it seems.) :) I am a follower, and have quite enjoyed your blog. My favorite is probably Marilyn Monroe -- yes, a popular choice, but I remember watching Some Like it Hot with friends early in college (sidenote: while have occasional self-image issues) and being so thrilled to see a curvaceous woman on the screen and celebrated for her figure.

    Thanks for the chance to enter this lovely giveaway!
