    Really wonderful portraits! Love that you included Clara Bow and Gillian Anderson, my favorites! Surprised there’s no Marilyn Monroe, though. And definitely would have liked to see more women of color: Aishwara Rai, Rosario Dawson, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, etc.

  12. Vintagevamp says:

    Oh, and you list both Shirley Maclaine and Samantha Morton twice. 🙂

  13. chaplin says:

    Oh, yes.. so I have. Shirley & Samantha will get their own little bio-sections at some point, so I’ll have a shift around. Glad you like the site, Vintagevamp. Yes, I’ll certainly be adding those actresses you mention. Excellent choices!

  14. Rose says:

    This is awesome. Where is Marilyn Monroe?

  15. Jnyfrl says:

    Where is Audrey Hepburn the most beautiful of all the times?

  28. oswaldo santos says:

    Only recently, I learned about Miroslava Stern, a czech born actress wich spend her life in Mexico. Her live was worthy to make a movie…
    I strongly suggest you to include her among our divas…
