The Lovely Lady of last week was Natalie Wood, unfortunately because of a busy schedule I was unable to post anything...here she is now:
(My absolute favorite shot of Natalie EVER.)
Natalie Wood was an absolutely gorgeous and absolutely talented actress. Superb in everything. I must confess it was extremely difficult to choose just a few photos to highlight, because I've never seen an Natalie shot that didn't turn out extraordinary! In fact, last month I cut my hair rather short. The main reason/inspiration for this were photos: 2 and 8. Although, I didn't cut it quite so short as 2, nor the same style as 8 (kind of a mixture of the two...if that makes sense).
For more Nat stuff, check out the blogs of the self-proclaimed number one fans (although it does make it difficult that they BOTH say that).

A shot from one of my absolute, if not my absolute, favorite Natalie roles: the feisty suffragette in The Great Race.
Favorite Natalie Films:
The Great Race
Rebel Without A Cause
Miracle On 34th Street (I'm sorry, but I do love it).
Also, the Great Kate of Silents and Talkies painted an amazing painting of Natalie. You can buy it at her Etsy shop. You can also buy prints of it.
P.S. Join me later this week for the Jean Simmons edition of my Lovely Lady series!
