Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share these beautiful vintage magazine covers from the 1940s featuring some of my favorite Hollywood celebrity icons like Rita Hayworth, Gene Tierney, and Betty Grable.

  4. What wonderful magazine covers! Thank you for sharing...These definately need to go to our Pinterest boards...

  5. Stunning! Love the Rita and Veronica Lake ones xo

  6. I feel satisfied after finding this one.

  7. It's interesting how color photos really show off the way that the women's mouths were being redrawn in this era, you can really see in Veronica Lake's picture, for example, the line where her actual lips end and how the lipstick is extended out several millimeters past that point. (I first noticed the trend for totally redrawing lips in the 40s with pictures of Gracie Allen, who'd been acting since the 20s and how her mouth suddenly became a totally different shape in her publicity photos from this time.)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a little comment, I do try to respond back as often as I can. Have a lovely day! xoxo - Rodellee
