A while back I did a photo essay of some handsome movie star men who were the beneficiaries of flattering portrait photography during the hey day of Hollywood. Today, I'm giving the ladies a shot as we take a look at some eye-catching, colorful portraits of some of the cinema's notable ladies. Some are more famous than others, some more beautiful, but hopefully there is someone in here who's a personal favorite of yours!
Kicking things off is this dreamy rendition of Rosalind Russell.
Miss O'Hara, who is an Underworld favorite.
Ava Gardner, outdoing the beauty of a rose.
Miss Olivia de Havilland. (We love you, Liv!)
Miss Joan Collins.
