Here are some more Vintage Vanities and Old Hollywood Glamour shots from the Silent Movie Era and the Golden Age of Hollywood!
Hopefully the classic Movie Stars reflected in the mirrors of the lovely vanities and dressing tables will inspire you to create some pretty vanity vignettes for the Vanity for Humanity book! Display your perfume bottles, powder puffs, hand mirrors, jewelry, trinkets, makeup, add some flowers, and anything else that brings a sparkle to your eyes!
Claudia at The Paris Apartment is still collecting photos to be included in the "Vanity for Humanity" book that will support others through Habitat for Humanity. Send your photos to her email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include as many photos and different looks as you like! Be sure to check out the blogs where I found many of the amazing photos below by clicking on the Movie Star's name too!
