The Pink Palace on Sunset Boulevard

A sex symbol in the 50s and a blonde icon even today: Jayne Mansfield - an actress, a Playboy model...tragically, she died in an automobile accident at only 34 years of age....
and now, courtesy of Architectural Digest and the photography of Allan Grant, we can sneak a peek....

...into her Pink Palace on Sunset Boulevard....

I am not sure whether these are tears of joy or desperation...

~did they have no dust in the 50s? ~ or mould?

pure Jayne.....

Subsequent owners of the Pink Palace included Ringo Starr, Cass Elliot and Engelbert Humperdinck. The house was demolished by developers (%$*#*#) in 2002.

  1. She was so gorgeous. And love these pics.

    Will you pretty please link your email to your blogger profile? I wanted to respond to one of your comments yesterday but got 'no reply at blogger' as your direct email. :)

  2. Hey, should work now.. in case it does not:

  3. Can someone loan me their hot-tub time machine, so I can go back, win the lottery, and buy this burning house of love, so some heathen billionaire (Roland Arnall) and his tacky wife (Dawn) won't tear it down?
