Museworthy: Cyd Charisse, 1922 - 2008

Legs eleven? Come dancing! If you're looking for pinspiration as hems climb higher and higher, you could do worse than Hollywood's golden era lady of the luscious legs. Texan born Cyd (whose real name was Tula) starred in Singin' in the Rain with Fred Astaire and stepped out on a gazillion war time pin-ups. She looked tops in silk stockings and knew her way around a thigh split. I'd have loved to see her in a Balmain mini with train, wouldn't you? Go Cyd!
