Baby, the Bathing Beauty

Spoooooky....I had an overwhelming urge to blog some Jean Harlow "bathing beauty" images today.  While gathering some pics, I came across a reminder that she had passed on June 7th, 1937.  Goose bumps!  So, here's to you, Harlean!

Wow that is SO spooky! Lovely pics, she was always such a stunner. x

Oh her feet look teeny! Wonder what size she wore.

Great pics!

I agree with Glamorous Housewife. I looked over the swimsuit section at Target the other day and it was bleak. There wasn't a speck of glamour to be found!

Oh goodness, Solanah, you're RIGHT. They are/were teeny little feet...at least if this source is correct http://www.lisaburks.com/jeanharlow/faq.htm
A 3 1/2 B???? Wow, those 30s gals had no tootsies at all!

Gals, I couldn't agree more. Why the heck can't bathing suit designers give us something like THIS---NOT in wool, but in a modern fabric with some vintage "yompfff" to quote William Powell in Double Wedding. LOL

Saw a HUGE framed photo/poster of Jean at an antiques fair today, more coincidence.

Her figure is so incredible, she was such a gorgeous woman! I really love the bathing suit in the top photo, so lovely :)

I'm obsessed with Jean and always feel so sad at her early death ... how she suffered! She was a woman with spunk! xo

Q's Daydream said...

Wow! I wish we all could look like that in a bathing suit, haha!

Look how tiny her feet are! I know no one else is looking at her feet, but my they're small. Great pics!
