Mae West

Mae West

August 17th’s birthday girl is Mae West.  Like fellow Leo, Madonna, West was one of those stars who totally dominated her era, breaking records and shattering stereotypes.

In 1935, West was the second-highest paid person in the United States.  It’s difficult to imagine that level of accomplishment in 2010 unless you compare West with someone like Oprah coming in second in earnings to someone like Bill Gates.  That’s how brightly Mae West’s star shone.

A Leo through and through, she reinvented show business, making it her business.  In fashion, as in life, Leos use aplomb and charisma to make everything about them.  The rest of us just let them get away with it.
