Fabulous In Fur Is Back

My apologies for leaving my loyal readers waiting for a new post. I shall do my best to insure this blog stays current going forward.
As the weather dips down into the teens tonight I realized I haven't done my Fabulous In Fur series once this winter and here it is February. That's a crime.
Well, a fashion crime anyway.

Lets not waste any more time and get right into our favorite classic stars sporting fur back when it was not only fashionable but the norm. (Again, my apologies to PETA.)

Barbara Stanwyck's a dream in white. (I bet that's the look she gave Robert Taylor when she wanted him to come closer, a lot closer.)

The glamorous Lauren Bacall stays warm with a mink stole and Bogey on her arm. She certainly does look annoyed but then again this was her usual expression so who can tell.

Frances Dee is very chic in a fur striped jacket.

Sophia Loren, always stylish opts for shearling with fur trim.

Rosalind Russell, always a good sport, shows off her floor length, lined cape. (Is it just me or does that bamboo coffee table stick out like a sore thumb? They couldn't spring for cherry or even something with beveled glass?)

The stunning, Paulette Goddard poses at her Hollywood Home. I can't imagine needing a fur and a jacket in southern California any time of the year but who am I to question celebrities and their body temperature.

Marilyn Monroe seems to be having a moment. Bless her heart and that wrap. 

Lucille Ball, just as beautiful without makeup, steps out in a mink coat.

Silent actress, Peggy Hopkins Joyce is working the chinchilla trimmed gown. (If only there were footage of her walking off set in that thing.)

No fur post would be complete without Elizabeth Taylor making an appearance in one of her many fur coats and a beard. 

Wherever you are I hope you're staying warm and having a wonderful 2015 so far. I'll see you soon for more fur, fashion and continued bios and Hollywood homes throughout 2015.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. It's more than a tad chilly in Toronto this morning so I really needed to ogle those fashionable furs! I have a thing for Dee's stripes, but Lucy's coat looks the warmest.

  2. Did you get the e-mail I sent on December 31st? I sent it to an e-mail address from 2010 so it might not have still been valid.

  3. Hi Page. I'm the publisher of a new Digital book imprint. Among other areas we are publishing titles connected with old Hollywood, and next month we are bringing George Sanders' wonderful MEMOIRS OF A PROFESSIONAL CAD back into print. Would love to get a copy of this to you, if you can give me a contact address. Best wishes,

  4. So glad to have you back where you belong, Page! My dear late mom used to have glorious furs before fur got a bad name and used kinder fabrics! As for Baby and Bogey, maybe they were winding up on a night on the town were ready to go home with their new baby at the time! :-D

  5. Page, we're so glad to have you back! The fabulous furs may make PETA unhappy, but it was another era. If Bogey and Baby were been less them their happy in the picture, it could simply be the new parents getting used to feeding the baby! :-D Welcome back, my friend!

  6. nice post plz visit

  7. Hi Page :)

    I just spent the last few days reading your posts. I truly hope you haven't quit blogging and I'm very sorry for the passing of your dad.


  8. I can't think of a better Christmas present than this.

    Well, I probably could if I tried... A new bike, maybe...

    But you know what I mean! :-p
