Blackglama: A Parade of Hollywood Legends

Blackglama – probably one of the most successful ad campaigns in the history of fashion. And oh, the “glama” doesn’t really mean “glamour”— it actually stands for Great Lakes Mink Association. Visit their website for more information.

o.1808

I know, I know. Blackglama is not exclusive for the ladies of Hollywood’s Golden Age, but based on the pictures that I’ve seen, it seems like a lot of then-aging Hollywood stars have joined the mink fur bandwagon.

I had fun looking for their “before” photos and putting them beside their Blackglama shots. Even though they’ve aged a bit, the glamour’s still there. They still exude sheer sophistication and elegance. Oh, I adore these ladies so much! 🙂

(And oh, I don’t own all of the photos. *wink*)

Happy blogging (and fan-girling lol)!
