Friday Fashionistas: Vivien Leigh


how to dress like vivien leigh and get her classic vintage style

After last week's short Friday Fashionista post about Queen Elizabeth, I thought I'd try another short one.  I'm not sure if we prefer the Friday Fashionistas with a long biography or simply lots of lovely photos. If you don't mind, please leave your preference in a vote on my Friday Fashionistas poll, which is on my sidebar. Also, don't forget to enter my lovely giveaway from Goodnight Boutique! Giveaway ends tomorrow morning.

This week's Friday Fashionista is Vivien Leigh, the beautiful actress best known for her role as Scarlet O'Hara in Gone with the Wind.


  1. Oh gawd, what I'd give for that face!! Failing that, I'd be happy to settle for the dress in the top picture... :)


  2. Vivien Leigh as always been a favourite of mine both for her acting and her beauty. Utterly gorgeous!

  3. I think I would like more pictures, maybe with a few facts/tidbits over a full length biography :D I'd read which ever way you decide though

    1. Thanks so much for your feedback! So far it's a tie but I like the fun facts with lots of pics too! :D

  4. She had such a wonderful, classic girl-next-door kind of beauty. She wasn't (by and large) vampish or overtly sultry at all, and for that reason (as I rarely am such things myself) I've always really seen Vivien as a source of inspiration (and I like to think, perhaps even a friend, had we known one another). Stellar post, dear Brittany, thanks so much!!!

    Oodles of hugs & joyful weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  5. She was such a beautiful woman! She is a role model for all of us it seems, her style is one that will be emulated for decades to come. Thank you for posting these amazing pictures of her, I do love the biographies as well as the photos, I believe they go hand in hand.

    Have a beautiful weekend! Adios,
    Jessie Lou

  6. I'm so glad you did this blog....I LOVE VIVIEN LEIGH! Great choice.

  7. Everyone was so much more glamorous then :) Lovely pictures

  8. Great timing! I'm reading Gone With the Wind for the first time!
