After just having seen the wonderful Pandora and the Flying Dutchman (1951) starring a young Ava Gardner and James Mason I thought I would look up Ava's biography and photos on the net. Apart from this movie being a great love story she wears some of the most beautiful clothes which I discovered were designed by Beatrice Dawson, originally from Britain. Ava Gardner was an incredibly beautiful and exotic looking woman who was married three times. Her most famous marriage was to Frank Sinatra but sadly it ended in divorce. The only photo not from the movie is the one above of her in a hat. Couldn't resist posting it for its sheer elegance.
Hello. I live in Brisbane, Australia and have started this blog to share my passion for beautiful clothes, new and old. I have a vintage clothing website vintageclothing.com.au that enables me to buy and sell some rare and wonderful items of clothing. Also to share them with you. Hope you enjoy my posts and would love to hear your opinions.
