Barefoot Contessa Chic

These looks remind me of Ava Gardner in The Barefoot Contessa.  I've read her biography (I like to do that sort of thing) and realized that she was really something.  There was a vulnerable nice girl side to her that her image and roles didn't portray.  I think she became more gutzy more and more as her film roles became more defined.  At any rate, she lived her life on her terms and I credit anyone who does that successfully.

A film about the life and loves of fictional Spanish sex symbol Maria Vargas. It was written and directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and stars Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner and Edmond O'Brien.

For his performance, O'Brien won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Mankiewicz was nominated for an Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay.
