Clara Bow

In the roaring twenties, Clara was designated the "IT girl", with it being sex appeal, apparently something you couldn't say in public, so you had to use 'it'. She was actually considered the first sex symbol from films, with a modern look, which seems to scream available. My grandmother was born in 1890 and loved Clara (also Charles Laughton and Rudolph Valentino, and of course thought Gable 'very handsome').
Note: Clara was the one rumored to have 'rewarded' the entire USC football team when they won the Rose Bowl, which included John Wayne!
