  1. This is a fun post Dash, must have taken you ages to find the matching photos! One thing's for sure, they all have panache!

  2. Great post - I cannot imagine finding all those matches! Wonderful!

  3. I love when a woman slips outside of the box~ that red wedding gown is a dream! Happy weekend to you too!

  4. As the saying goes... nothing new under the sun!!

    Happy weekend to you!

  5. What a super post....especially Mae West....doing it better!

  6. Great images - really interesting to see these 'twin' photos - that red wedding dress was such a head turner. How sad that she is no longer with us... x

  7. Those tiny nipped in waists! If I could get the flab to go I also would have one of those

  8. Betty (Bacall) is always effortlessly elegant in all her photos.

  9. Gorgeous pictures Dash! And great matches. I love Anita Ekberg's outfit. That headpiece is quite something! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Is it hot there? I've tagged you over at mine xx

  10. I love that white lace DVF dress with the red sandals! So much so if I had gotten married in warmer weather, it's exactly the look I would have gone for :-)

  11. More please.

  12. You're so clever Dash, putting all of these together! Love the first white lace dress, so pretty! K xx

  13. Fabulous Dash
    all very glamorous.. and I think the originals had just that wee bit more flair.. particularly Mae West!! and Sophia Loren!!

    thanks for the lovely comment.. those chandeliers are fabulous aren't they... xx Julie

  14. are a girl to love!

    These images are wonderful. You always manage to provide the most interesting posts.

    I love them all but I have to say I find that Lauren Bacall dress most intriguing and if I could wear the outfit Kay Francis is wearing I would be in heaven!

    Best wishes for a wonderful week!


  15. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
