Lil' Blonde Darling: Darlanne Fluegel!

Blonde Beauty Icon Darlanne Fluegel

Cast as ditzy blonde model LuLu in the campy yet chilling 1978 thriller Eyes of Laura Mars, Darlanne Fluegel is one of the films many highlights. The plot revolves around noted NYC fashion photographer Laura Mars (Faye Dunaway), who's controversial work mixes erotica, murder and violence for use in fashion magazines and ad campaigns. She starts having horrific episodes of uncontrolled temporary blindness; only able to see through the eyes of a psychotic serial killer who is murdering her business associates with an ice pick. While working with the NYPD, Laura discovers that all her fashion images mirror confidential crime scene photographs! It is then a race against time to catch the killer....before he can get his hands on the eyes of Laura Mars! Written by Halloween's John Carpenter, this movie pretty much changed my life! The photographs were shot by the legendary Helmut Newton and Rebecca Blake. To top it off the film also features a killer disco soundtrack! Darlanne's looks in the film are exceptional; crimped hair, tawny lipgloss and too much terra cotta blush!! If you haven't seen this movie yet....WTF is wrong with you?!

A fine wine!
