Isle Style : Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward

I clipped this picture out of Vanity Fair a while back and just fell in love with the natural beauty of Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward (& pup).  The lighting of this photograph is just dreamy and warm. Paul Newman met his wife Joanne while filming "A Long Hot Summer" (1958) have you seen it?  Click here for a a little taste.
Don't you just love her head scarf?  Both of them look so natural and at ease enjoying a beachy day.

This is such a wonderful photograph. Kind of makes me sad. They were such a vibrant and wonderful couple. How hard it must be for her to be without him.

Beautiful and natural photograph. I'm a huge fan of the "Glamour Years" of Hollywood, no...it's one of my obsession!!! The true Hollywood Movie Stars, their lifestyles, and all that particular era offered, that I wished we had today. Just a great post!!!

Great shot! I had met Paul Newman several times in the 70's and 80's. I knew both his daughters, we were from the same town in CT. I will tell you he was very short, and his eyes were the most stunning blue I had ever seen! He was very kind!

and to all my mer-sisters:
I'm still dragging my toes through the sugary white sands of my beachy home/paradise,while sharing the joy/luxury with YOU!!
tomorrow,,winging my way westward..
back home to Denver..
savoring each and every detail during the long winter ahead..
warmest sandy hugs to all!!

Really love Paul Newman's easy style. Have you ever seen that picture shot in 1957, just before the release of wonderful Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on which he's wearing dark blue wool cardigan, white crew neck t-shirt, worker trousers, white socks with some kind of low dark sneakers?

If you wanna see it, go to initialsao.tumblr.com and you'll see how MODERN he looked like 55 year ago!!! With some really outstanding details like his slim black leather wrist watch, and strikingly well-shaved face like on today's catwalks.

Enjoy as I did!
