Iconic Ingrid

I found this photo in an old article about BVLGARI from a 1978 Italian Vogue. I always thought Ingrid Bergman to be one of the most beautiful faces to ever grace the silver screen and if you take that and add some BVLGARI diamonds you have something magical. Bergman has always been one of my favorite actresses because she was an amazing beauty who actually knew how to ACT. Not only was she a great actress and beauty but she showed the world that you can be beautiful at any age. She had continued success after her glamour days had ended and showed that older women could be beautiful and desirable. At 50 she starred in "The Yellow Rolls Royce(1964)" as a wealthy older woman who helps fight fascism and captures the heart of the very young Omar Sharif(Pre Dr. Zhivago), showing that true glamour never fades! In my opinion Ingrid Bergman is one of the only actresses who should be considered both a beautiful sex symbol and an amazing actress; she won THREE OSCARS to prove it! But on top of it all she transcended age, genre, and type casting to be become a true legend proving you could grow old yet remain forever beautiful.
