Feminine, Seductive and Glamorous Actresses to Inspire Femininity, Seductiveness and Glamor

©2008-2013 The Seductive Woman


Young girls in their formative years are very idealistic. Most young girls get their inspiration from popular feminine and glamorous movie stars and celebrities. 


They emulate their looks, the way they dress, walk and conduct themselves.  


However cupcake, this emulation isn't exclusive to young girls, as many women find the need for inspiring FEMININITY, seductiveness and glamor. This is why they too like to glean tips and tricks from watching movies with such women starring in them.

There are lots of female heroines in old Hollywood movies and films - such as Deborah Kerr ('The King and I,' 1956,) Kim Novak ('Vertigo,' 1958,) Joan Fontaine ('Letter from an Unknown Woman,' 1948,) Greta Garbo in ('Queen Christina,' 1933) and Margaux Hemingway in 'Lipstick' (1976.)


However, to be really inspired by the most feminine, seductive and glamorous actresses, women often look for wonderful old Hollywood movies and BOMBSHELLS for inspiration - such as Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe.

Sadly, Elizabeth Taylor passed away recently, but she's one of the most beautiful feminine and seductive faces to grace our screens screen in a very long time. Her distinctive violet eyes set her apart from the other beauties of her time, and she was known for her glamorous lifestyle.

Elizabeth Taylor played as 'Velvet Brown' in the movie 'National Velvet' in 1944.) Velvet Brown showed the strong will of an twelve adorable year old girl, and disguising herself as a male jockey, riding her horse and winning the race. Her other movies are 'Butterfield 8' (1960,) and 'Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf' (1966.)



Elizabeth Taylor's roles can be considered as thought provoking roles for any feminine viewer. In the minds of many, her most famous and seductive role was playing the Egyptian queen Cleopatra in the movie 'Cleopatra' in 1963. And she played the world's most feminine and seductive woman with ease. Who wouldn’t want to be Cleopatra for a day, dove?


In addition, who wouldn't want to be a real princess - or have the charm, poise and refinement of a real PRINCESS! Grace Kelly was a renowned Oscar winning actress who retired from acting at age of 26 - to be the fully-fledged Princess of Monaco. And became 'Her Serene Highness.' 




Grace Kelly was a fashion icon for women during her time, as well as a most feminine, serene and gracious woman (just as a REAL princess should be.) Moreover, Princess Grace became a real-life example for girls and is still remembered for her platinum beauty, her regal style and her ultimate femininity.

Another fashion icon of the 1950s and 1960s is actress Audrey Hepburn - who passed away in 1993. Her role in 'Breakfast at Tiffany’s' made her the benchmark of feminine glamor and elegance. Moreover, the Hepburn image is chic, clean cut and feminine in a gamine sort of way.



Magazines still feature Audrey Hepburn when they talk of the classy and timeless look, and her style has endured, even after her death. Audrey Hepburn can be compared to Jane Fonda and Marilyn Monroe as a key woman of beauty, femininity and style in the movie industry of the twentieth century.


Modern women also identify with Audrey Hepburn when it comes to the idea of feminine charm, grace and poise, and in the 1950s, Audrey epitomized the modern woman who has an attitude that's a bit different from the attitudes of more traditional women.

However, in the 1980s, as time swiftly passed by, Audrey Hepburn seemed to become even more charming, graceful, and poised - and more subdued somehow.



When she debuted in Roman Holiday (1953,) she appeared to be such a natural. Moreover, the slim black Capri trousers associated with her, and her flat ballet-style pumps were not considered to be 'appropriate' wear for women during her time. 


But Audrey continued to wear them for ease of movement, and she ultimately became a trend-setter for women of that era. 
In addition, Audrey Hepburn was girly and womanly (she did try and emphasize her curves,) and wore black jerseys with a sexy deep V back.


She starred in 'Sabrina' in 1954, in 'Funny Face' in 1957, and in 'My Fair Lady' where she portrays feminine Cinderella-like roles. Other powerful Hepburn performances were 'The Unforgiven' in 1959, 'The Nun’s Story' in 1959, 'The Children’s Hour' in 1961 and 'Wait Until Dark' in 1967.

In contrast to Audrey Hepburn’s gamine beauty - feminine curves, voluptuousness and bombshell style and glamor produced a NEW type of woman - the Hollywood bombshell. Seductive bombshells such as Jane Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe became all the rage.



For men, and for women, Marilyn Monroe was considered to be the most womanly movie star, the ultimate sex symbol and a Hollywood goddess.

Furthermore, Marilyn Monroe was certainly a very girly and feminine woman, and starred in light comedies such as 'How to Marry a Millionaire' and 'There’s No Business like Show Business. And her films 'Gentlemen Prefer Blonds' and 'The Seven Year Itch' are evocative of the more traditional masculine men-feminine women relationships.



In 1959, Marilyn starred in 'Some Like It Hot,' playing a singer who hopes to marry a millionaire. However, Marilyn Monroe became quite controversial in 1953 when she became the first nude centerfold of 'Playboy' Magazine. She exuded sensuality and sex appeal, which is evident in most of her movies.


Her nude Playboy centerfold shocked so many people, and to avoid judging her, we can at least say that she had guts to such a thing well ahead of her time.

Anyhow dove, i do hope you enjoyed my article; 'Feminine, Seductive and Glamorous Actresses to Inspire Femininity, Seductiveness and Glamor.'
