It’s Oscars week you guys! It’s Oscars week! Since I was a little girl, I’ve looked forward to the Academy Awards, which air this Sunday evening. I wanted to be an actress throughout my childhood, and into early adulthood as well – I even have a bachelors degree in acting. Most of my training was in stage theatre, but I had full on stars in my eyes for movies, and that was my ultimate dream. While I eventually turned my career aspirations toward design (it was actually a required costume design course for my degree that flipped the switch to clothing design for me), my love affair with film never died. There is little I love doing more than watching movies, and Oscar night is hands down my favorite night of the year to turn on the television.
When it comes to movies, I love everything from tiny indie films to action blockbusters. And although I am by no means a classic film buff (truth be told I’ve really only seen a handful of old movies, mostly the very famous ones), I have a fascination with classic hollywood that stems from my childhood dreams of one day becoming a glamorous movie star. I’m infinitely intrigued by learning more about the stories of the actors’ lives (which so often seemed to be filled with drama and heartache), and I absolutely love looking at photographs of them at their most dolled up. So in honor of Oscars week, I thought I’d share some of my all-time favorite shots of these iconic celebrities. Each of them can be found (and purchased!) on photos.com.
Who else is excited about the Oscars this weekend? Who is your favorite classic Hollywood star? (Forever an Audrey girl over here!)
