Maureen O’Hara is probably the most notable actress from the Emerald Isle, but she happens to be one of our favorite girls, too! (Probably because of that fiery Irish independence and temper that seems to come through in all of her characters!) Here she is in her most famous role as Mary Kate Danaher in the 1952 film The Quiet Man. O’Hara plays an Irish girl who gets married off to an American boxer (played by John Wayne), much to her dismay. Here, Mary Kate is sporting a cream-colored tweed jacket, a navy blue dress, and a greenish-grey tam o’shanter that perfectly complements her enigmatic eyes and gorgeous red locks. Obviously, the two still aren’t seeing eye-to-eye in this particular scene (pictured, below), but they eventually realize they’re made for each other! Fun Fact: Our parents used to leave out our VHS version of The Quiet Man when we were little girls, to make it look as though leprechauns had watched it while we were sleeping the night before March 17th! Happy St. Patrick’s Day, and Erin Go Bragh!

Today, one of our favorite actresses from Hollywood’s Golden Age turns 91! The stunningly gorgeous redhead Maureen O’Hara has a habit of playing strong-willed Irish girls (because there’s so few of those… hehe!) Here, she’s wearing a gorgeous 1950s soft pink halter gown, with a white bust in one of the most famous pictures of the golden girl. It’s also quite perfect for Pink Wednesday! ❤ Happy 91st Maureen!
Oh, it’s sad to think St. Patrick’s Day won’t come for another 365 days, but theSkinnyStiletto isn’t done naming their famous Irish lass looks. This “Fancy Friday” is yet again Maureen O’Hara from The Quiet Man. This is the first wedding dress we have featured, and while O’Hara looks stunning as always, the gown is definitely old-fashioned and old-country, but the delicate lace, fitted bodice and veil still look quiet pretty. Unless… it may just be due to the fact the scarlet-haired lady can make anything appear beautiful. But it’s hard finding a lot of elegant outfits in a culture that prides themselves on surviving famine and hardship!
It is St. Patrick’s Day, so in honor of the gorgeous green island, today’s Look-of-the-Day is the beautiful lass Maureen O’Hara in The Quiet Man. Not a likely candidate for a modern fashion blog, but O’Hara looks divine in whatever she wears – and this plaid cape is no different. It was hard to get a sharp picture of her whole outfit, but Ms. O’Hara wears it as a shawl, and a scarf for her lovely red locks, very much looking the part of the little Irish girl who steals John Wayne’s heart. So tonight, before you sip your first Guinness, remember to channel Miss Maureen when getting dressed – be glamorous and green! Erin Go Bragh!
