Do you remember the first time you saw a lady? Yes @bereolaesque, I do. I don’t remember what movie my mother and I were watching but I do remember Dorothy Dandridge was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen on television. The movie was black and white and I couldn’t tell she was black just that she was gorgeous. I knew then that whatever air about her she had, I wanted it! She was a talented actress but it seemed beyond acting, she was a Lady. I never forgot how she commanded my attention. In high school, I wrote about her for Black History month and in college I wrote about her for a women studies assignment. She has and will always be relevant to me. Dorothy Dandridge will always be a model for me, flaws and all because she was the first woman I remember associating with being a lady not just female. Yes, @bereolaesque! I remember the first time I saw a lady and I remember every lady after that. They are just that rare. #DorothyDandridge #alady #firsttimeFridays #firsttime #beautiful #classy #timeless #actress #rare #Gentlewoman

These are my top four favorite actresses and idols: Jayne, Audrey, Dorothy, and Eleanor. I adore each one of them for their strength and courage to continue during the harder parts of their lives, and for their immense beauty and talent. I love them for the wonderful human beings that they were — flaws and all ? After Eleanor; Elizabeth, Marilyn, Ava, Lena, Rita Moreno, and Shirley Temple round out my top ten. I can’t even begin to explain how important they are to me and how much they inspire me!

Enjoying my #dorothydandridge #movie while sketching up new designs! For thosr of you who does not know who #dorothydandridge is and if you’re #africanAmerican it’s not your fault due to racism in Hollywood during segregation. She was a #fighter. Growing up in depression and making her way through #hollywood in the 40’s, she encountered resistance to her skin color. Although every societal convention was against her, she still managed to make a handful of gorgeous, invigorating films. #salute #dorothydandridge #blackroyalty #hollywoodglam #oldhollywood #classichollywood
