3. 1932: Jean Harlow
Jean Harlow was the sex symbol of the 1930s, defining what it was to be a "blonde bombshell." Because of that, you could often catch her on red carpets wearing daring spaghetti strap dresses, slinky sequins, and bias-cut gowns that skimmed the body. She embraced her sensuality, and inspired her fans to do the same.
