Yvonne De Carlo ~ Hollywood in Kodachrome

Beautiful actress/dancer/singer Yvonne De Carlo, circa the 1940’s, in a kodachrome photo.  De Carlo, along with many other Old Hollywood stars, appears in the book Hollywood in Kodachrome, by David Wills.

I love the rich depth of color of De Carlo’s hair and makeup in this photo.  Stunning!

Marilyn Monroe ~ Black Cape

Marilyn Monroe in a black cape, circa 1955, photographed by Milton Greene.  This may be one of my favorite picures of Marilyn.  I love how her red lips are the only source of color in this photo.  So beautiful!

Marilyn Monroe ~ Shades of Red

Marilyn Monroe with her trademark red lips and gold hoop earrings.  In this photo there appears to be a little bit of pink lipstick in the center of her bottom lip.  I wonder if this was intentional or just the way her lipstick photographed?

Judy Garland ~ “Get Happy”

Judy Garland singing “Get Happy” in the 1950 film Summer Stock.  I love this whole scene from Garland’s performance to her styling.  The red lips, black fedora, and black suit with stockings looks incredible!

Stella Stevens ~ Does she remind you of anyone?

When I first saw some images of actress Stella Stevens I did a double take.  Does she remind you of another famous blond actress?  To me she slightly resembles Marilyn Monroe.  Although definitely not identical, there are some facial similarities.  I think it is maybe the eyes and eyebrows, but I’m not quite sure.  The funny thing is that when you look at images of Stevens when she is older, she looks nothing like Monroe at all.  Absolutely no similarity.  So it must of just been the way Stevens was styled at that specific time.

What do you think? Do you see any similarities between Stevens and Monroe?
