Faye Dunaway, 1969

When I was a teenager, I went through a Warren Beatty phase. I watched every film I could: Splendor in the Grass, Reds, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Shampoo and even Ishtar, which I didn’t think was as bad as everyone said it was! By the time Bugsy rolled into theatres, I was over him. Perhaps my most favorite Beatty film was Bonnie & Clyde, but I think that has a lot to do with the gorgeous and talented Faye Dunaway.

Faye was so glamorous, that she made it seem okay and maybe even a little cool to be a bank robber. I started wearing berets immediately after I saw the film. Although she was admittedly fashionable, the real Bonnie Parker wasn’t quite as stunning as Ms. Dunaway in her scarves, slim skirts and pretty little, fine gauge sweaters.

I admit, Dunaway scared me a little in Mommie Dearest, where she plays the abusive Joan Crawford (“NO WIRE HANGERS!”), but Faye makes a pretty elegant crazy bitch. She even managed to look somewhat attractive in her performance as a drunk in Barfly – she certainly looked better than her co-star, Mickey Rourke (and that was BEFORE his plastic surgery).

At nearly 70 years old, Faye still looks great today. She is truly a woman of style and taste.

  1. I agree, Ms. Dunaway looks great at all times. It's strange how much she looks like Catherine D. to me in that photo with YSL.

  2. I'm kind of loving Faye's haircut in Bonnie and Clyde. Trés chic. Makes me want to cut my hair off!

  3. My sister has a Mommy Dearest obsession....long story.

  4. She is a timeless beauty. Love that yellow sweater.

  5. The styling in that movie blows me away (no pun intended!) I don't think you mentioned Reds. Now that was a good movie.

  6. OK, you did and I'm just not reading very clearly because I'm so zonked right now. Not my smartest moment...

  7. i love her - strong, intelligent and funny! xx

  8. Faye and Raquel Welch make the seventies acceptable and even sexy. Oops, Tina Turner too.
