This week I have some very special vintage finds for you all themed around one of my favorite musicals from the 1950′s, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I love everything about this musical from the awesome musical numbers to the wardrobe and the adorable characters! Jane Russell is just fabulous in this film, as is Marilyn Monroe. For such a smart gal, she always ended up with the sexy dumb blonde roles. And even though I just adored her in Some Like it Hot and How to Marry a Millionaire, Marilyn’s role as money obsessed blonde bombshell, Loreli Lee is one of my all time favorites! She’s only matched by Jane Russell’s character Dorothy Shaw, the money loathing loyal best friend who is just brimming with wit and sarcasm. If you have never seen this movie, go out and rent it! You’ll be glad you did!
