The 40's Starlets were Real Women of Sensuality!

I wonder sometimes if I was born in the wrong era?

Maybe I was meant to live in the 40's? I would love travel  back in time to the land of beautiful, well groomed women that oozed sensuality. I love that era!

Several famous female icons pop into my head as I write this like Rita Hayworth.

Rita Hayworth was beautiful, stylish, graceful and a talented dancer - pin up retro perfection.

I can't believe she appeared in over 61 films in 37 years ...she probably didn't have much time to reflect. Hayworth is most famous for appearing in movies like You'll Never Get Rich with Fred Astaire which was one of the most expensive films produced during that era according to IMdB. Of course, Gilda is her most famous film; Hayworth portrays a seductive wife of a mob boss caught in an affair.

Famous quotes from Rita Hayworth that I cherish (because they are so honest):

"Men fell in love with Gilda, but they wake up with me." -

"We are all tied to our destiny and there is no way we can liberate ourselves.” -

We can learn a lot from the female icons of the past because of their wisdom, elegance and grace and sensuality.
