Style Icons: Female »Jayne Mansfield

jane mansfieldSo maybe I am a bit of a hypocrite. I hated the rash of crotch flashing for publicity that spread round not too long ago, but I kind of love that Jayne Mansfield's big move was to publicly let her bosoms fall out.

I love her madness and obsession, the way she used to walk down the beaches of California handing out signed photos of herself. I don't know maybe it's her reported high IQ that let's her get away with it, or her indelible radiating charm, or the fact that she was a lovely woman and devoted mother – or that I am just more forgiving to things in the past.

History has not been particularly kind to this buxom blonde, now a days she is referred to as a poor man's Marilyn Monroe and is remembered?mostly for the false rumor that she was decapitated in the car wreck that took her life. But, her legacy lives on with the totally respected career of her daughter Mariska Hargitay of Law and Order SVU.
