Of all the photos, the above may be my favorite! Her personality, her spunk, her style, captured in black and white. If you’ve seen any footage of Carmen Miranda, you know what a charismatic, talented performer she was. Gone long before my “time,” at the young age of 46, it is easy enough to google her, and find photo and video footage of this star. So often we see the current talent and forget the legends that came before them. Although, as time passes, perhaps stereotypes can also pass and those looking at her, or any other star, can see in new light her talent, beyond her typecasting.
We found this video, and it almost looks as if she’s wearing a dress just like one of our charms… go ahead, search for other videos, she was amazing and her work should be shared.
