theSkinnyStiletto has been on a bit of a hiatus, because our main editor was on a work stint in Washington, DC for the last six weeks, but she’s so glad to be back home! (And back to writing! Which is pretty difficult when you don’t have a computer in your apartment!) Today is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the event which would eventually draw the United States into World War II. A movie by the same name was made 10 years ago starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett and this beauty pictured above, Kate Beckinsale. The three play friends and lovers in a dramatic triangle set to the background of the attacks in Hawaii. Beckinsale plays a nurse in the US Navy, and sports some stunning 1940s looks (which we’ll definitely compile in a future article…), but we just couldn’t take our eyes off of this still! Beckinsale is just stunning in her bright white nurse’s uniform and matching cap, with luscious brunette waves and a dark red pout. This English rose looks right at home as an American sailor! It’s important to remember this day, and the men and women who sacrificed their lives on this fateful day in 1941.
