Today and from the past. This board began simply as ladies of style, but I couldn't resist expanding to women who seemed to have a veracious need for independence and the desire to go beyond limits!

Alice Roosevelt 1903

Alice Roosevelt Longworth, 1903. Hand-tinted photograph by Frances Benjamin Johnston. A typical Aquarius, Alice drove her father, Theodore Roosevelt, to distraction by smoking cigarettes, placing bets with bookies, attending the odd sumo wrestling match, and at some point, getting tattooed. One day, after threatening to throw Alice out the window, President Roosevelt signed to a friend: "I can either run the country, or I can attend to Alice, but I cannot possibly do both."
Alice Roosevelt Longworth, 1903. The Paris Hilton of her day, she smoked cigarettes in public, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach in the White House, and gambled.
Colorised photograph of Miss Alice Roosevelt in White House East Room I'll bet that dress was actually blue. It's from her we get the old song "Alice Blue Gown".
Oh Louise! Didn't realize how sexy she was until I saw this photo—

Linda McCarthy with Paul. Although she grew up rich, she left a legacy of progressive causes including vegetarianism and kindness to animals. So sad that she died so young. Thankfully, her daughter Stella follows in her footsteps.

Ruth St Denis and Ted Shawn. Carol Leonetti. early 1900s In 1911, a young dancer named Ted Shawn saw St. Denis perform in Denver; it was artistic love at first sight. In 1914, Shawn applied to be her student, and soon became her artistic partner and husband. Together they founded Denishawn, the "cradle of American modern dance." One of her more famous pupils was Martha Graham. #ruthstdenis #tedshawn #moderndance #dance #denishawn #vintage

Myrna Loy. Trained as a dancer, she devoted herself fully to an acting career following a few minor roles in silent films. She was originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, but her career prospects improved greatly following her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934).

Amelia Earhart — not only was she courageous, she wore the coolest leather jackets!

"Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others." — Amelia Earhart was the 1st female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. Earhart joined the faculty of the Purdue University as a visiting faculty member to inspire women with her love of aviation. A member of the National Woman's Party, she supported the Equal Rights Amendment.
Amelia Earhart: she had to start and stop several life paths but eventually she launched, reached cruising altitude and soared into history. Never give up trying to find your place in this world.
Amelia Earhart (July 24, 1897 – disappeared July 2, 1937) was an American aviation pioneer and author. Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Amelia Earhart . Always admired her, facinated by her life. And inspiration to a girl growing up in the 50's...

“I'd rather regret the things that I have done than the things that I have not.” - Lucille Ball MY ICON FOREVER
Lucille Ball...the Iconic Hilarious Red Head of all times!
As one of America's most beloved comediennes and one of Hollywood's more astute businesswomen, the legendary Lucille Ball rose from being a B-movie film actress to one of television's most iconic figures, boasting more than 50 years of continuous employment in Hollywood. Because of her eternally syndicated sitcom, "I Love Lucy" (CBS, 1951-57), which broke new ground in too many areas to count, Ball remained a constant presence on the small screen and, consequently, remained well-known to subsequent generations of fans.

“Uschi Obermaier was the erotic symbol of the counterculture, the pop icon of the sixties and seventies, a model, film star, groupie, and lover– yet never let herself be pigeonholed or stereotyped. Her life of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll was like a road movie– dynamic, wild, at dizzying velocity, and completely freed from all bourgeois values. ‘I would betray any revolution for this woman,’ said Rainer Langhans, at whose side she posed unclad for Kommune 1. Turning her back on the political

”I’ll tell you one of the reasons I’m ready to leave. When I first came to Hollywood five years ago, my makeup call was at eight in the morning. On this movie it’s been put back to seven-thirty. Every day I see Joan Crawford, who’s been in makeup since five, and Loretta Young, who’s been there since four in the morning. I’ll be god-damned if I’m going to stay in a business where I have to get up earlier and earlier and it takes longer and longer for me to get in front of a camera. ~ Grace Kelly
