A is for Anita, B is for Belinda ....
Now for some good old-fashioned Glamour! We are indebted to that great site POSEIDON'S UNDERWORLD for unearthing this series of German movie star sketches, from presumably the early 60s. I don't know anything about them or even who created the drawings, but they are quite witty and well done. There is a huge collection, I have just selected a few favourites:
Anita looks like an iceberg emerging from maybe the Trevi fountain, Belinda walks the streets (as in her SHE WALKS BY NIGHT - Belinda label), Sophia has vesuvius in the background, Gina emerges from a bombshell, Lilli looks chic as usual, Romy carries the Austrian eidelweiss, Mylene Demongeot enchants as usual, and Garbo is just right !
