Recently I’ve been trying to come up with office/beauty room ideas. I want to go with an old Hollywood glamor theme. I love the fashion and femininity of the 1950’s! Look at the cover of this issue of Vogue super glam and very lady like!
While researching ideas via Pinterest and YouTube I always come across photographs of the same starlets: Audrey Hepburn
Marilyn Monroe (whom i love BTW)
and Liz Taylor
They all were very beautiful and very talented women of their time don’t get me wrong. However, I wonder why we hardly ever spotlight and display African American women of Old Hollywood? We were Glamorous, Feminine, and Lady Like! We had Style and Grace
check out this Ebony cover from 1958
I want to celebrate the women of color who paved the way like
and we can not leave out
The first Black woman to grace the cover of Life Magazine! #Epic
They’ve made major contributions to Black Hollywood so these are the women I choose to grace the walls of my beauty room! Although I enjoyed Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and The Last Time I Saw Paris. We should always give credit to the women who broke the boundaries for Black Women in Hollywood!
