Born Virginia Katherine McMath, you may remember Ginger Rogers for her stage and screen performances. Although, what some people may not know was that she was also an accomplished artist. She was talented in both painting and sculpting, and if she had more free time she could have excelled in either. Ginger also had an enthusiasm for athleticism. She enjoyed swimming, golf and tennis, she actually won several tennis cups.
In 1985, Ginger was given the chance to direct a musical comedy, Babes In Arms. It proved a hit with the Tarrytown, New York audiences and verified that Ginger Rogers could do anything she set her mind to. Several years later, Ginger wrote her best selling autobiography, Ginger: My Story. She traveled thousands of miles across the United States and to London to promote the book and sign autographs for fans.
Rogers is associated with the phrase “backwards and in high heels”. Her legs were known to have been insured for $500,000.
As ginger is commonly seen to fashion a garter or two, whilst keeping her style sexy and elegant, a modern day hold-up would be a great match for her.

Audrey Hepburn was a British actress, model, dancer and humanitarian. To this day she is seen by many as a film and fashion icon. Hepburn was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third-greatest female screen legend in Golden Age Hollywood and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.
Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe’s images were opposed to each other. Monroe was the voluptuous, ditzy sexpot while Hepburn was sophisticated and elegant. In fact, Truman Capote, who wrote the novel Breakfast at Tiffany’s, wanted Monroe to play Holly Golightly in the film because he thought she would be more believable as a call girl. The character had to be changed significantly to fit Hepburn, though the result was an iconic, influential film.
Although Audrey had a whopping size 10 feet, she had such an admirable image, that she has a song dedicated to her legs.
As Audrey ‘s elegant style is widely appreciated, mainintaing this with a pair of Ultra-Sheer Wolfords would definitely be her modern day style.
