Before the days of Madonna, Lady Gaga and Marilyn Monroe, the “Original Blonde Bombshell” aka Jean Harlow made her mark on Hollywood and the world, leaving behind a new image of the Hollywood sex goddess.
Let Jean Harlow inspire you to let your ‘inner goddess’ free and take charge of your diabetes like a diva!
Jean captivated fans with her trendsetting platinum blonde hair. On film she often wore white satin gowns, which combined with her ivory skin and platinum hair, gave Jean Harlow an unparalleled luminous quality. Harlow glowed from the screen, reached out and grabbed the attention of the viewer and never lost it.
In 1930, movie producer and entrepreneur Howard Hughes became interested in Jean and cast her in Hell’s Angels. In Hell’s Angels, she spoke the now famous line, “Would you be shocked if I changed into something more comfortable?” Jean’s appearance in Hell’s Angels solidified her role as America’s new sex symbol.
Jean was labeled a “screen siren” for her sensational dialogue and revealing costumes, but audiences, directors and producers alike appreciated her flair for comedy and drama.
