    Hey Lucy!

    Lucille Ball was an American actress, comedian, model, trailblazing feminist, entertainment studio executive and producer. Known for her iconic television show 'I Love Lucy', Lucy was a supreme physical comedienne, with a list of 72 films during her illustrious career. Funny lady Lucy made us laugh until we cried and will forever be our favorite redhead style icon perfectly balancing casual American sportswear with high glamour.

    Here's Lucy! Celebrate the queen of comedy with glamour gowns of the 1930s and 40s, the classic 'Lucy' fit-and-flare silhouette of the 1950s, loungewear and housecoats, slim-fitting suits, feathered hats and marabou jackets, picture-perfect hats of all eras, brightly colored shifts, and party outfits of the 1960s and 70s à la Auntie Mame. Don't forget those red-carpet-worthy evening gowns with sparkle aplenty! We love Lucy!

    When I think of Lucy, I think of bright exuberant colors, and polka dots.
