Lovely Lady!



The lovely Ann Margret has got to be one of my favorite inspirations! The first time I ever saw her was in the movie Viva Las Vegas, no surprise there...hehe. After that I wanted to be her, and not only because she had the affections of Elvis. I wanted her voice, her hair, her style, everything! Yes, when I was a teenager I even had long red hair. When I was 15 my family took me to see her in person in the play The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. When she came out onstage I was laughing and crying all at once. I couldn't believe she was right there! Then, when I was looking through my binoculars to get a closer look, Ann Margret looked right at me with a grin on her face! I probably stuck out like a sore thumb in my hot pink dress. Anyway, I didn't have the guts to look through my binoculars the rest of the night...haha. So if you have yet to discover Ann Margret you must! She's in every kind of film from Bye Bye Birdie to Grumpy Old Men. :o)

She's beautiful! I think long red hair is really enchanting, and she is certainly that. I agree with what bare.peppermint.fashions said - its nice reading your posts about celebrities i may otherwise be unfamiliar with, its nice to learn about celebs who aren't being pushed into our faces every day by the tabloids etc :) hope all is well for you!
