This week we honor classic beauty, Jayne Mansfield, as our Thursday Throwback.

The epitome of the blonde bombshell, this gorgeous actress was as talented as she was stunning. One of the iconic pinups of her era, Jayne Mansfield was a dream girl of Hollywood. Mansfield was also brilliant self-promoter, whose glamorous beauty and popularity continues to inspire beauty junkies and makeup mavens to this day.

Mansfield is the original queen of the wardrobe malfunction. The starlet rose to fame after strategically planning a loose top and exposed skin "mistake," while arriving to a movie premiere. The incident helped to put her on the radar of executives and put her career on the map. The star was second only to Marilyn Monroe, whose hair and makeup style was so similar, it was sometimes hard to tell the two apart.
