Here's To Life

This was originally posted in 2011, following the death of Elizabeth Taylor. Since then, we have lost a sobering number of ladies celebrated on this list: Celeste Holm, Joan Fontaine, Esther Williams, Deanna Durbin, Eleanor Parker, and Shirley Temple. All the more reason to continue to appreciate and celebrate the goddesses who remain -- there are no ascendants to the throne who can take their place.
