Barbara Stanwyck

Thought I'd do a little post about one of my favorite hair and clothing inspirations of late.  I know it looks like i've disappeared, but i'm still here, reading every one's blogs and stuff.  But i've been super busy and its been hectic lately (I've also been having some fun) and i look up and, my word, its Monday again.  Another week has passed by before i even realized it.  also a week from my last post, which might be rude... (?).  So i apologize for the looooong halts between posts,  I'm working on it.

The Gay Sisters, 1942 
 That being said, here are some of my favorite pictures of Barbra Stanwyck.
Stella Dallas, 1937



Barbra Stanwyck wasn't exactly as popular as Rita Hayworth or Judy Garland or even Ginger Rogers, but she was still VERY well known.
(for more info on her, click on the Wikipedia link above the picture)
(I do not own any of these photos)


Take just a few minutes to look at these.
No words are needed, the pictures speak for themselves in way of her wonderful style, wit and oh yes, HAIR!

























Her born name was Ruby... She does look like a Ruby, doesn't she?

As an added plus...
here is one of my favorite Barbara movies, right here (!) Meet John Doe (1941)




Hope you enjoyed!
So long,
Beth

I saw her in Clash by Night. She did a good job acting in it, I just wasn't a fan of her character.

Yes she really does look like a Ruby, such a wonderful name isn't it? I love that last photo, her eyes look amazing, those eyelashes are so long!
