Style Icon: Vivien Leigh

That tiny nose those ridiculously beautifully animated eyebrows, this talented woman has always fascinated me. She had a difficult life but her beauty and charm does not fade. I watched Waterloo Road for the first time a few weeks ago, after discovering thanks to Helga and Lauren that the director, Sidney Gilliat hailed from my new home town, so you see less than six degrees of separation between me and Viv.

  3. What beautiful photos I've never seen any of these before. She was a highly talented actress with a very complex array of mental health issues. So beautiful. I love her voice! Streetcar Named Desire is one of my favourites. x

  4. Such an exquisite lady! I have only seen her "unstable Southern belle" roles (GWTW and Streetcar) but this reminds me I should see more of her films!!

  7. Delighted to have been able to provide useful info for once! ;-) Oh my, Vivien Leigh was just gorgeous. As a kid, I desperately wanted to have dark dark hair and fair skin. I got the fair skin part!
