Lovely Lady of the Week: Ava Gardner

Last week I started a new weekly series featuring a different lovely lady a week.

This week I continue with Ava Gardner!



Ava is one of my absolute favorite actresses. And she is number five on my "Most Beautiful Actresses" list. There is something so amazing about her. She can be glamorous and stylish, but at the same time be completely natural and real. Very few ladies possess this quality and none with as much amazingness as Ava.

Enjoy:














With her husband, Frank Sinatra



Favorite Ava Films:

Mogambo
On The Beach
The Barefoot Contessa
Show Boat

5th on the list? She should be #1. Thanks, great page.

I love the dress she's wearing in the picture with Frank! I like her earthy style better-- I wish I could look like her in Night of the Iguana, with the oversized shirt, skinny pants and barefoot feet, she seemed to have such a carefree elegance.

Millie said...

I love that dress too.

That's exactly what I was trying to say(but you explained it SO much better)...she had carefree elegance!

Oh, she was a real woman, Ava! (I had a girl in my class in high school named Ava, I always called her Ava Gardner, though I don't think she ever got the reference.)
Love the picture with Ava in a red shirt!

Millie, thanks for following my blog, and for setting up such a lovely post to serve as my introduction to your site! I will be blogging about Ava's smoldering hot performance in "The Killers" opposite Burt Lancaster in the weeks/months ahead! :)

Love her!

Carefree elegance is also a perfect description of Ava's very alluring quality.

I loved this post and all the photos, especially the last one.
