A Salute to...Lucille Ball
- Born Lucille Desiree Ball, in Jamestown, NY.
- Was a Model for Hattie Carnegie designer clothing.
- A natural brunette, though dyed her hair red and bleached it blonde. She was one of the few to make jokes about her "natural" hair color.
- Auditioned for a role in Gone With the Wind.
- Her acting career began as a film noir, not for her famous witty comedy skills.
- Nicknamed: Technicolor Tessie, Queen of the B Movies, The First Lady of Television, and The Queen of Comedy.
- Max Factor were the ones to suggest Lucille dye her hair red with henna.
- Lucille Ball raised the pitch of her voice in I Love Lucy.
I love her 1930s/1940s style the most! She's such a beauty!
I think this glamour shot alone qualifies her as a film noir!
I love everything about this. Her make-up, hair, and look at those nails!!
Lucille had an awesome casual side. In jeans and still looks glamorous!
Have I proved my point at how fabulous and elegant Lucille Ball was??
Though she was known as a famous comedienne, Lucille was a gorgeous pinup during the war years!
Personally because of her years in comedy, I think her glamour and sophistication, along with the fact that she was a kick butt entrepreneur between Desilu Productions then Lucille Ball Productions after her divorce. She was an awesome lady and quite a pioneer in the acting world!
And yes, I do love Lucy. How about you?
