What is 'Old Hollywood Glamour'
Celebrities like Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner and Dita Von Teese come to mind. For me, the classic styles of the 1920's through 1960's will always be chic.

There was an focal point of interest on the head - a cocktail hat or hair accessory!
I am really drawn to this style of dressing. Here is my interpretation of old Hollywood glamour:
