Lithe, long-legged blonde Vera-Ellen has a smaller filmography than many of the other artists singled out here, but her impact cannot be overstated; she was one of the leading musical stars of 1940's and 1950's cinema. The dazzling costumes she wore for many of her roles customarily included opera gloves or elbow-length gloves.
