Vintage Style Icon - Pier Angeli
I cant believe I havn't blogged all week!  Its been one of those weeks...we all have them, lets not go there...
but it Friday (yay!) which means its a day off for me.
I've got a lot to do today but I do hope you like my Style Icon post.
Pier Angeli, a beautiful brunette with pretty almond shaped eyes
was born Anna Maria PierAngeli in Sardinia, Italy.
The beauty won film awards in Italy, was spotted by MGM and bought to Hollywood where she stared in many films and even won a Golden Globe for 'New Star of the Year' in the early 50's.
As a young Hollywood star she dated James Dean whom she claims, after many relationships and two marriages, was the love of her life....

Pier's look has that perfect balance of sultry and girl next door, I love this 50's classic beauty -  shiny waves and dark perfectly groomed brows.
Pier almost had a comeback when she was cast to star in Coppola's 'The Godfather' (1972) but sadly just before filming was to start, Pier was found dead in her home at only 39 years of age....another great Star who died way too young
