I love how over the top her lifestyle was, I can't even imagine what she would be like now with the money that flows to movie stars.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous finds lady stardust!
I can't give you (or anyone) karma right now, but I will later!

In the Blackglama ad she was around 82 years old, and still lovely & beautiful as ever.

thanks so much everyone!!!the more pics i look at the more intriguing i find her.....
cecil b. demille said about her:"when you put them all together and add them up,gloria swanson comes out the movie star of all movie stars.she had something that none of them had."
and a quote from gloria herself:"i have decided that when i am a star,i will be every inch and every moment a star.everyone from the studio gateman to the highest executive will know it."




"gloria swanson in the garden of her beverly hills estate."



"at the height of her career,her clothing bill was 125.000 dollars a year-supposedly the highest of any star."



"even in later years,swanson still exuded sensuality."








"swanson posing in her NYC apartment,1975.she always retained her flawless skin and bone structure."
