Friday, March 26, 2010


Hedy Lamarr - originally from Austria - was once dubbed the most beautiful woman on film.

She exhibited a style that was both unique and also expressed the fashions of the time better than most of her fellow actresses.

Not only a talented and glamourous star - she was also an inventor.She co patented a missile defense frequency hopping technology during 1941 that was so far ahead of its time that it wasnt implemented until the 1960's.It forms the basis of WiFi technology as we know it now.

Hows that for style!
