Friday Video: Carmen Miranda

Friday, July 27, 2012
Loretta reports:

Before there was Lady Gaga, there was Carmen Miranda.  While this clip has a longer lead-in than another of the same song on YouTube, I think it's worth the wait for the sharper image.  If you love her style, as I've done for ages, there's lots more where this came from.

Readers who receive our blog via email might see only a rectangle or square where the video ought to be.  To watch the video, please click on the title to this post.

Drat! I still can't see the video and I adore Carmen Miranda!

Wow! Look at the gold platform shoes she had on!

Fun clip.

Sarah, try going to You Tube and searching for: Carmen Miranda - "Give Me a Band and a Bandana"
Lynn, she was so famous for the wild headwear, but her shoes were pretty fabulous, too.

Wow. The fact that she can dance in those heels is amazing! I can barely cut a rug in 2" heels!

I like the pink palms on her gloves. Unique.

I forgot about this post until I read your post foe Esther Williams. Are you familiar with Jimmy Buffett's song," They Don't Dance Like Carmen No More" I was nine years old when she died and I cried!
