Dita Von Teese on Jayne’s curves

image

“When I was little, I remember watching Jayne Mansfield in The Girl Can’t Help It and making a promise that when I grew up I was going to have curves like that: the cinched-in waist, the big bust and those ample hips that just popped off the screen. I’ve never made a secret about having my breasts done. It’s something I’m proud of. The message I want to get out is that anyone can do this. Honestly, without my bag of tricks, I am pretty ordinary—it’s just that I have a pretty nice bag of tricks.”

5. Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith’s career took off when Guess hired a young Anna Nicole to emulate Jayne in their now classic ad campaign from early 90s. Although being compared to Marilyn Monroe a lot, to me she has more similarities with Jayne.

“I just feel a connection with Marilyn Monroe. I just love her. I just completely feel what she went through.”
