IMO the person whose picture needs to be next to the definition of blonde bombshell is Jayne Mansfield. (If you don't know who she is, she was Mariska Hargitay's mother.

Who wouldn't know of Jayne Mansfield?:shuffle:

Jayne was gorgeous.This outfit is tha bomb. Still fashionable after 60 years. (http://parisapartment.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/jayne-mansfield-clear-lucite-shoes.jpg)

You can see the Mariska resemblance. (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_10yYjoTIYE0/S2ipf5DeNzI/AAAAAAAADXI/aPywz5lIgf8/s400/pinup+jayne+mansfield.jpg)

The original Blonde Bombshell. I'm a huge Harlow fan.

Damn Straight. No one pulled it off quite like Jean Harlow. (http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=%22Jean+Harlow%22&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1451&bih=861)

(and now I've got Kim Carne's Bette Davis Eyes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPOIS5taqA8) going through my head with the opening line, "Her hair is Harlow gold." :lol: )

ETA: Watching that video, it's got to be one of the top 80s cheesiest videos of all time :rofl:

Pfeiffer never had the body to be a bombshell. I think of a curvy woman.

Gaga has more curves than Michelle and Gaga is a skinny thing.

Such a stunning woman, and such an absolutely tragic end to her life :fragile:

I just looked up some information on Jayne Mansfield. Such a horrible accident. Her daughter is the only one I know, did any of the others go on to be famous? I hope they were all too young to remember anything. :(

Thread drift!! I love that song. :) Random factoid - before her big breakout, Kim Carnes was a back up singer for David Cassidy, who in his day played to sold out stadiums around the world.

I certainly grew up in the era of blonde bombshells...and being a brunette was tough in the late 50-s and 60s! :lol: But seriously, I always think of the term "blonde bombshell" as someone who is blonde and beautiful, yes, but also a little sexually dangerous. In this case, Grace Kelly doesn't fit because she was such a lady. Kim Novak was too housewifey (too me anyway.) Lana Turner does fit the mold, as does Jayne Mansfield. Madonna is too hard and shrewish, as is Gaga. They have the sex going but not the femininity.

But give me Mae West any old day. The woman was a legend and brilliant. She wrote all her own material and was a vegetarian (later in life.) Of all the women above, if I could be any of them, I'd be Mae. Marilyn and Jayne and some others were emotionally scarred and somewhat victims. Mae was her on take charge woman and lived on her own terms, successfully.

Surprisingly, no one here has mentioned Betty Grable, yet another iconic blonde.

Valuvsmk did in post 12.:)

I think, without the weirdness and drugs etc..., Anna Nicole Smith could have been considered an iconic blonde bombshell. She was gorgeous.

Gaga and Madonna don't belong on this list at all.

Agreed. Granted Madonna has had her moments, but overall, no.
