Women of Mention–Betty Grable






December 18, 1916-July 2, 1973. Betty Grable was a fantastic singer, dancer, and actress. Grable was particularly noted for having the most beautiful legs in Hollywood and studio publicity widely dispersed photos featuring them. Hosiery specialists of the era often noted the ideal proportions of her legs as: thigh (18.5″) calf (12″), and ankle (7.5″). Grable’s legs were famously insured by her studio for $1,000,000 with Lloyds of London. Wasn’t she gorgeous?

  1. …now of course, Ginger’s Gams are dear to me, to be sure, but Betty definitely had some awesome legs… honestly, ‘THE pose’ is one of the most iconic images out there…
    She was a young one in a few of the Ginger and Fred movies, specifically ‘The Gay Divorcee’ and ‘Follow The Fleet’… just extremely cute!

  2. She is so beautiful! I love her pouty lips. She’s so cute on screen – I really need to check out more of her movies. Great post!

Well #chocolate for sure!!! Here's how I make mine ------------------- ▪️10 oz unsweetened almond milk ▪️1 scoop of shakeology ▪️a frozen banana (but I like mine really banana flavored. You could do 1/2) ▪️about 8 ice cubes to make it frothy (I like it thicker) ▪️sometimes a little pb2 or spinach that's it! Blend and I have to put it in my favorite #tervis #tumbler of course! Super easy, delicious, and satisfies me til lunch. Let me know if you're interested in ordering some! Great sampler pack this month! #beachbody #pb2 #almondmilk #ninja #cleaneating #mealreplacement #healthy
