Jane Russell was a famous actress in the 50's and 60's too. She and Marilyn Monroe were terriffic in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She even did a sequel called Gentlemen Marry Brunettes which I think is funny.
This...is...everything!!! Marilyn Monroe & Jane Russell, in matching gowns designed by Travilla, relax between photographs while they pose for publicity stills to promote their film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,' Los Angeles, California, May 1953. Photo by Ed Clark. °
Jane Russell appears here wearing a black and white halter neck dress. I find this style interesting because it gives the illusion of a sweetheart neckline without actually having one. Very cool style.
