8. 1937: Barbara Hutton
Barbara Hutton was the Kardashian of the 1930s. A socialite and heiress, her name was constantly splashed across newspaper headlines thanks to her tumultuous private life. She was nicknamed the "Poor Little Rich Girl" when she threw a lavish debutante ball right amid the Great Depression, and went on to conquer the social circles and party scenes. With great fortune comes an enviable wardrobe, and her outfits were special hits at balls.
