Vintage Starlets Like You've Never Seen Before
Written by Lyra Radford
Nothing is quite as good as it should be without a woman's touch, films and television shows are no exception. Whether in the form of a blonde bombshell, evil temptress, sweet girl-next-door, or a classic beauty, all these lovely ladies make the world go round. Collected here are vintage photos of some of the most beloved Hollywood starlets of all time.
The original Catwoman Julie Newmar in 1966.
Pictured here is the beautiful Julie Newmar all decked out in the costume from her most memorable role, Catwoman, from the Batman television series.
Sporting a tight one piece and armed with a bullwhip, the provocative thief had quite the love-hate relationship with Gotham’s hero. It was Newmar who was responsible for modifying the now-iconic Catwoman costume. She wore the belt at the hips instead of the waist, to accentuate her hourglass figure.
The costume is now at home in the Smithsonian Institution, Julie Newmar herself, went on to establish an immensely successful career as an actress and an advocate of LGBT rights.
