The always elegant Dina Merrill dazzles in this lace-covered item. I wonder how many people (besides obsessive me) ever noticed that her left hand is draped behind her in such a way that one of her fingers is peeking out from behind her backside?!
Of course, the world's most famous redhead, Lucille Ball, also never shied away from wearing red, though, again, her hair wasn't a true red. More a pumpkin orange if the truth be told. (By the way, I love the Sears weather-beater level of base that she has on in this photo! The color of her face bears no resemblence in the slightest to that of her neck.)
No restrospective post is complete without a shot of Miss Joan Crawford. During the years she was photographed more frequently in color, she seemed to lean more towards shades of green and fuschia, but in this one, she's (ever-coordinated) in red.
