This morning I completely lost myself in an article Jenna wrote a few weeks ago, showcasing wedding dresses from the last century. The next few hours were spent Googling famous dresses worn by great movie stars such as Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor (with six marriages, you can imagine I had a few to choose from!). I then wavered and started to Google old movie stars in general and remembered how utterly and disgustingly beautiful they were.
Even though re-touching is not a new phenomenon and was happening from the begging of the 20th century, these stars were still fabulous. Much like today they all had a certain ‘look’ synonymous with the era and radiated glamour in a way modern actors strive to emulate.
Call it shallow. Whatever. Just sit back, flick open a Diet Coke and enjoy.
Here are the 16 stars who make my insides hurt and eyes pour with jealousy…

This makes me sick.
It’s not fair.
