I fell for her when I saw National Velvet as a little girl and it’s impossible not to honor her as one of Hollywood’s greatest. What I love most about her is her unending support of causes like the AIDS epidemic when few other celebrities were willing to put their names behind the once controversial disease. She made being brunette not only fashionable, but mysterious and seductive. I may have to go out and buy the perfect shade of red lipstick in her honor.
