Lucille Ball Fashion and Style

It's been ages since my last Friday post! It's so good to be back to regular blogging. Today's Friday Fashionista is one of my favorite vintage mamas: Lucille Ball

Lucille Ball Fashion and Style
"Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead."- Lucille Ball

  While her comedy stands out more than her fashion sense, it seems that the modern world ties all things 50's back to Lucy. I can't tell you how many times a stranger has said "You look just like I Love Lucy!"

Lucille Ball Fashion and Style


One of the most iconic fashion moments for Lucy and for mothers is when she appeared on television while pregnant. In her time, pregnancy and even the word "pregnant" was not acceptable for American television but when the actress was with child, they had no choice but to find a way for the show to go on. In 1952, Lucy became the first pregnant women to be on a television show and of course, she was a maternity fashion icon.

  2. What breathtaking photos. I totally think of Lucy as a fashion icon. Even my kids get it - I have a full skirted polka dot sailor dress that they have always called my Lucy dress. I adore her and you for sharing such wonderful photos of her!

  4. "Use a make-up table with everything close at hand and don't rush; otherwise you'll look like a patchwork quilt." --awesome quote and still relevant today!

    I grew up watching Lucy and always saw her more as a mom, but it's clear from these photos that she was quite sexy as well!

  5. Hi Brittany! A great post once again! I too love Lucy. I have a little nod to her in the sidebar of my blog! She had great style, but above all else, she had real 'get-up-and-go'! A woman with character and inner strenght. And I think that's you! I've been following your blog for a while now, and you do remind me of her, in more ways than one. Thank you for inspiring us! Tania ♥

  9. As undeniably awesome as I Love Lucy was, it's actually always been some of Lucille's film roles that stand out as my favourite acting that she ever did. Whether on the big screen or the small though, I adore her and constantly inspired by her feminine fashion - and hair! - sense.

  11. Beautiful :) I've been watching I Love Lucy re-runs on the "Me TV" channel for weeks now! She's so funny <3

  12. You know, it's amazing how woman being funny isn't usually associated with them being beautiful. In fact I don't think most people look at Lucy and realize how sexy and gorgeous she was until they see some of those pictures up there. Stinks how woman have to (or at least do in general) down play their beauty to be funny. (And sorry no, I don't count Cameron Diaz as funny.)
