Eva Marie Saint – Style Icon

If ever asked to pick my favorite “Hitchcock Blonde,” I would have a very hard time picking just one.  Eva Marie Saint is one of them for sure, maybe the first.  Her cool sexiness in “North by Northwest” is par none.  My sister and I must have watched that film at least 25 times after school, it was the beginning of my obsession with Mid Century everything and that amazing Paramount VistaVision!  Ladies and gentlemen, Eva Marie Saint.  Style Icon.
