As you can see from the avatar, Lady Day is a big favorite. These recently discovered photos from a French magazine are some of the most gorgeous color shots of her that I’ve seen. So ridiculously talented and so beautiful.

“She [Dorothy Dandridge] wanted life to be just the way she pictured it in the schoolbooks. She wanted to be happy and surrounded by happiness. This was always my feeling of Dorothy. She was such a delightful, beautiful, generous giving soul. But she really only wanted to have life and love around her. And because of her desire to have this, she wasn’t always able to reason logically and make the best decisions.” - Dorothy Nicholas Morrow, former sister in law of Dorothy Dandridge
