Think the Golden Age is a distant memory? Here are today’s equivalents of stars, ranging from Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe.
Audrey Hepburn & Natalie Portman
Dark hair, dark eyes and a radiant smile are just three of the qualities associated with both Hepburn and Portman. Also on the list: poise and grace, thanks to early training in ballet.
Grace Kelly & Gwyneth Paltrow
Blonde and blue-eyed, they put the class in classic beauty.
Elizabeth Taylor & Angelina Jolie
Two words: sex appeal. Like Taylor at her prime, Jolie simply oozes it.
Marilyn Monroe & Kate Upton
With blonde locks and sexy curves, Kate Upton has taken up the mantle from Marilyn, frequently posing in next to nothing.
Josephine Baker & Rihanna
A self-proclaimed admirer of Josephine Baker, Rihanna shares the American-born French performer’s tastes for pearls, fur and pushing the envelope.
Katharine Hepburn & Tilda Swinton
Although Hepburn pioneered the androgynous look 80 years ago, Swinton takes it to an edgy and contemporary new level.
Edie Sedgwick & Cara Delevingne
Free spirit, waif figure, dark eyebrows: Delevingne puts us in mind of the original “it girl.”
Lana Turner & Charlize Theron
Over-the-top glamour—marked by jewels, blonde waves and luxurious dresses—links these two silver-screen stars.
Bettie Page & Dita von Teese
Like the 1950s “Queen of Pinups,” Marilyn Manson’s raven-haired ex favors spike heels and retro lingerie, some of which she designs herself.
Rosalind Russell & Sandra Bullock
With elegant ease, these lanky ladies manage to look at once chic and down-to-earth.
