Sharon was only 26 years old yet I've never seen an actress who had so many pictures taken of her. Thanks, Matt.

The color photo, third from bottom is my favorite. Such a beautiful girl. All three of the Tate girls were gorgeous.

CarolMR said...

AustinAnn, is that picture from EYE OF THE DEVIL? Sharon never looked more beautiful than in that movie.

Panamint Patty said...

On the top she is wearing a very stylish wraparound dress which was invented around the same time by Diane Von Furstenburg. :)

CarolMR said...

In the photo taken by Roddy McDowell, which was in one of his books, Mia Farrow wrote the accompanying text about her friend Sharon.

AustinAnn74 said...

Yes, I think it is. Yes, I agree. She looked fabfuckingtastic in that movie. Her hair was such a beautiful shade of blonde. The style made it look thicker too.
She was just gorgeous. She blew most of the chicks away that her rodent husband bonked.

I love wrap dresses. How lucky it was to be able to wear something that low cut without a bra too!
In the age of so much phony bodies, like implants, liposuction, tummy tucks, and the Brazilian Butt lift, it is refreshing to see a photo that old of a girl that was naturally beautiful without a surgeon's help.

Sharon was a beaytiful woman but, I don't think that heavy line she put across the top of her eyelids did her any good at all.

william marshall said...

Thanks Matt I'll email you more pics soon

CarolMR said...

Orwhut, every actress/model/teen drew that line across their eyelids in the 60s.

Venus said...

In the 1st photo, she's actually wearing pants, I think it was a jumpsuit. Diane's wrap dresses were invented in 1974, celebrating their 40th aniversary this year. Check out www.dvf.com

Venus said...

Lovely photos and I also think she was at her most gorgeous in the era of "EOTD."

CarolMR said...

Venus, in the first photo - is that the one where Sharon is also wearing a ring-bracelet combo? I had never seen anything like that before.

Venus said...

I think so. I'm trying to find other photos from that same time. I've seen many of them but, of course, now that I want to find one, I can't.

Venus said...

Here you go, Carol!

Venus said...

I hope you can see the photo, my computer is acting up and won't let me see any images right now.

CarolMR said...

Can't see the picture yet, Venus, but I'll keep trying.

orwhut said...

CarolMR,
I graduated from high school the year of the murders and remember the girls wearing lots of eye makeup. I must have forgotten those awful lines.

Panamint Patty said...

Hi Ladies, Nice 2CU

CarolMR said...

Orwhut, I went to a parochial school so no one wore that line on her eyelid! I think mostly models and actresses used that makeup technique.

I thought I recognised the wrap dress. Nice, aren't they?

In the Valley of the Dolls promo, I wonder if she was hormonal or something, because her body looks much more voluptuous. You can see what she might have been like as she aged. She might have become very lush.
I wonder is there anyone here with the skills to do that, to age Sharon?

CarolMR said...

Fiona, do you mean the last picture?

Venus said...

She's not wearing a wrap dress as they weren't even invented until the 1970's. For some reaosn, my full-length photo showing the outfit (a jumpsuit) isn't showing up. I'll try to find it again.

Venus said...

I still don't think the photo showed up, my computer isn't letting me see soem images so I'm not sure. I'll send the photo to Carol and have her post it. Then you can see that it's not a dress, but a jumpsuit. I like it!

CarolMR said...


Venus, I'm so sorry - I can't get the picture to post here but I can see it in my inbox. It's a jumpsuit and Sharon has a cast on her foot and she's wearing the ring-bracelet combo jewelry. Sorry.

Matt said...

Venus, I grabbed the pic & tacked it to the bottom of the post...


CarolMR said...

Thanks, Matt!

Venus said...

Yes, a big thank you to Matt.
