Sometimes I wonder why Leslie Caron isn't more iconic. We all know about Marilyn, Audrey, Brigitte and Sophia, but I think Leslie Caron is equally enchanting.
Leslie Caron played the ingenue in such movies as "An American in Paris," "Daddy Long Legs," "Gigi" and "Lili." She's got big, bright eyes and a French accent, and in most of the movies, she gets a chance to show off her mad dancing skills.
Lili (above) is one of my favorites and probably the most romantic movie featuring puppets ever. (Do I mean that? Even more romantic than the times Kermit and Miss Piggy get together? Even more romantic than The Dark Crystal? Yes. I think I mean that.)
And while she's not as famous as she once was, and she doesn't show up on Pinterest all that much, her legacy as a leading lady is still very solid thanks in part to her beauty, her innocence and her sassy dance moves.
