We all know the blonde bombshells from the fifties like Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. Their pictures are so well known that I'd like to show you another, maybe less famous but nevertheless gorgeous actress and model from the fifties: Mamie van Doren.
Mamie van Doren (her real name is Joan Lucille Olander) was born in 1931 in South Dakota and she's still alive and kickin'. One of her best known movies is High School Confidential! (1958) You can watch the whole movie on youtube here. I think Mamie had a great sense of style and amazing hair of course, just take a look at her.
