Cyd Charisse

Legendary dancer Cyd Charisse passed away last night from a heart attack. Growing up, I remember thinking how beautiful, tall, and graceful she was in those intricate dance sequences with Gene Kelly in "Singin' in the Rain." She epitomized glamour and style like no other, at once exuding innocence, and in a heart beat, sensual sexuality. Her legend will live on, but few will be able to replace her.

Read more about her here, and see some of my fave scenes of her below. Watch both to see what I mean about her being capable to be both vixen and romantic. (I LOVE that second video; she is absolutely gorgeous in it!)
