little richard, just cuz.

we rented the girl can't help it, starring jayne mansfield and her insane silhouette. something about the beauty of jayne mansfield's face is very contemporary--a sort of taut, empty-eyed, big-lipped look, which seems more 2000s plastic surgery than 1950s bombshell to me. still, she rocked it hard. she was an ambitious one, that jayne, signing a seven year contract with warners and divorcing her first husband on the very same day, knowing full well where her priorities were. she was on the up and up, until one day, tragically, she wasn't.



one of those great, candid photographs. a tough world for beautiful women.
