Jane Russell: 1921- 2011

She was the sassy brunette alongside the frivolous blonde. She was the one who inspired the famous conical bra based on aircraft technology. In the 1980s she wore Chanel Coco. Ernestine Jane Geraldine Russell will be sorely missed.

    Brunettes have sas AND brains - and she was a lady on top of that. Time for Nat King Cole`s ``Unforgetable``

  3. A,

    These old stars had a certain integrity and command over their image which is lacking in today's stars, isn't it so?

  4. L,

    I'd like to think so being a brunette myself. She was a lady indeed. Sexy but never vulgar.

  5. Sexy but down to earth, a sensible gal with a sense of humor about herself. Beautiful, and a good person too.
