Green with Envy

Green with Envy

The Night of the Iguana, The Barefoot Contessa, Mogambo, Showboat, The Killers…if you have not seen these films, run out and rent them.  Then and only then will you see the beauty, class and style of Ava Gardner.  Married to the likes of Mickey Rooney and Frank Sinatra, Ms. Gardner was (and still is) a style icon.

My Friday blogs are dedicated to a bit of my fantasy.  So, if I had lived during the golden age of cinema and had been asked to dress Ava Gardner for the Oscars, this is what I would have chosen for her.  The emeralds and the rust colored dress make me green with envy.  Have a great weekend everyone!
