Classic Hollywood Portraits

The Glamour of the Gods 'Hollywood Portraits' Book Highlights Icons

— August 10, 2011 — Business
Taking one look through the Glamour of the Gods: Hollywood Portraits photobook is like looking through a veritable who's who of Hollywood royalty.

The images have been compiled by old portrait collector John Kobal, and are currently on view at the London National Portrait gallery exhibit in London, England. The images in Glamour of the Gods: Hollywood Portraits are varied but stunning. See Marlon Brando at the height of his brooding, movie star sexuality. The late Elizabeth Taylor stands tall in few shots, looking stunning and vivacious in the prime of her career. Another image even shows a very candid shot of Marilyn Monroe, seated casually and staring into the camera with unabashed innocence.

The Glamour of the Gods: Hollywood Portraits collection is a must see for any fan of old Hollywood. It will be on exhibit at the London National Portrait Museum until October 23, 2011.

Implications - In the last few years, there has been an increased societal focus on icons of yesteryear. These celebrities are the influence of many of our common entertainers, and serve as cultural reference points for many movies. A company can appeal to these wide fanbase of supporters by making explicit reference to these iconic figures, or creating ads that subtly mimic their most memorable moments. This connects the brand with consumers who long for a simpler time, establishing an emotional connection with the consumer's subconscious.
