National Nylon Day! Celebrating Iconic Bombshells

For National Nylon Day, we're celebrating our favorite fashion accessory and honoring our favorite bombshells; iconic women who weren't afraid to flaunt their curves and best assets. From the Golden Age of Hollywood to the 80s, here are 4 stunning females who have worked their magic.

 

The most famous icon bombshell is Marilyn Monroe. Her appearance was both seductive and childlike. Monroe's beautiful voice and carefully cultivated “dumb-blonde” reputation were combined with passionate eroticism and the most famous curves of any woman.

Monroe began acting and modeling in 1946, but it wasn't until the 1950s that she became a sensation, thanks to films such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and The Seven Year Itch, which featured the famous scene in which Monroe's white skirt gets blown up while standing over an air grate.

 

 

 

Since her debut in 1953's Roman Holiday, Audrey Hepburn has been regarded as one of the most beautiful and elegant ladies in the world.

Audrey Hepburn's style in Breakfast at Tiffany's is nothing short of legendary.  The Holly Golightly role was described by Audrey Hepburn as "the jazziest of my career," and there is little doubt that it was her trademark performance.

 

 

The opening sequence of Breakfast at Tiffany's was originally characterized by Harper's Bazaar as "one of the most potent fashion moments in cinematic history."  I mean, who can forget Holly Golightly's long black dress and pearls? 

 

 

Jane Fonda was an accomplished actress before she became a fitness guru in leotards and leg warmers. At a time when Hollywood was moving away from the tried-and-true formula of the Golden Age and toward a more adventurous and experimental future, she made her movie debut in 1960.

 

 

When Jane Fonda began her career in the 1950s, it was as if she had a magic wand that allowed her to smoothly go from frivolous romantic comedies to gritty crime thrillers, psychological dramas, and political and environmental activism.

 

And then there was Jessica Rabbit. 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' features Jessica Rabbit, a well-known sex icon cartoon in the world of animation branded for her catchphrase, "I'm not bad, I am just drawn that way.”

 

 

Jessica’s statuesquely tall, terribly voluptuous, and gorgeous looks make her one unforgettable female cartoon!
