I have always been mesmerized by Hollywood glamour. At times, I enjoy challenging myself and mimic a style which reflects those silver screen beauties of the 40’s and 50’s. Today, I chose to style one of those beauties.

Dorothy Dandridge was an African-American film and theatre actress, as well as a singer and dancer. She is best known for being the first black actress nominated for an Academy Award. She won the Best Actress Award for her role in Carmen Jones. (oooo I think I’ll make a note to style Carmen soon) A stunning starlet who left us too soon.

I hope I have done her justice.
