"Demure, dark-haired English beauty Jean Simmons (1929 - 2010) was in the late 1940’s a box office attraction in films like Great Expectations and Hamlet. In 1950 she moved to Hollywood with her husband, Stewart Granger, and soon became a major Hollywood star who would be twice nominated for an Oscar." Love her gorgeous rose print dress. #vintage #actress #1950s
