Before the wonderful world of social media and reality television, people had to actually have talent in order to gain fame. Back in the late 1920’s the Golden Era of Hollywood was introduced. It was basically a combination of beautiful actors, hard working producers and writers collaborating to make Hollywood magic. The era was much similar to the Renaissance era and featured classic, simple looks that were still beautiful. The Golden Era eventually ended in the 60’s, but we have to take time to think about the beautiful singers and actresses that were created during this era. The women on this list won Hollywood over with their looks, sounds of their voices, their ability to act, and by making history.
Dorothy Dandridge made history when she became the first African-American actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. She is mostly known for her beauty, gracious voice and her famous role in Carmen Jones.
Lena Horne was a beautiful jazz singer, actress, dancer and civil rights activist. Horne made history by becoming the first African-American woman to be nominated for a Tony Award.
