Di'vicon (Diva Icon) of the Month

Jane Russell

My di'vicon of the month is the fabulous Jane Russell. Unfortunately, we lost her this year at the age of 86, but she is one of my favorite stars of the 1950's . She starred in one of my favorite movies "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" with the immortal Marylin Monroe. Her song from the movie "Ain't there anyone here for love." Is a song I sing often.

She was a popular pin-up in the 1940's and was the inspiration behind billionaire Howard Hughes "re-invention" of the bra which she had to "correct" before photographing her famous movie poster shots for the movie "The Outlaw"
After a successful career in Hollywood, Jane married 3 times and returned to her christian faith and spent the rest of her life sharing her faith and making appearances. She was fabulous, fierce and is my di'vicon of the month!
