There are just some people who exude sex appeal. Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Dorothy Dandridge, and Earth Kitt all had it, and Mae West seemed to invent it. I love old movies and when I watch classic movies like Some Like it Hot, Butterfield 8, I’m No Angel or Lena Horne in Stormy Weather or Eartha Kitt in the tv series Batman, I wish I had that ease in being sexy.
So an effort to up my sex appeal, I thought, “What would Marilyn do? or Liz, or Lena, Eartha or even Mae. They’ve become my fairy sex godmothers. And any good mother always has some advice for her daughter. I bring you lessons on sex, love, and life from Old School Hollywood’s Sex Symbols.
Every woman needs a man who will ruin her lipstick and not her mascara.
Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.
Beauty is not something to be dressed up. The Gods have done that. So keep it simple and let it shine all on its own.
There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.
Don’t be afraid to feel as angry or as loving as you can, because when you feel nothing, it’s just death.
It’s not what I do, but the way I do it. It’s not what I say, but the way I say it.
Sex is emotion in motion.
