Look Closer... Vintage Photos That Were Never Edited

Few things are as satisfying as a trip down memory lane -- and it's even better when you find something you didn't notice before. Because as Ferris Bueller said -- life moves pretty fast. Here are dozens of pictures of celebrities and remarkable people of yesteryear in all their beautiful, vintage glory. The glamour, the fashions, the hair -- whether classically elegant, effortlessly cool, or interestingly tacky, we shall not see their like again. Here's to the movie stars who were larger than life, here's to the rock stars who lived on the edge, here's to the comedians who still make us smile, here's to the bit players who had those moments of glory that changed their lives forever. It's all good, it's all groovy, and the rest is history.

The man who would be the leader of the free world was also a dad -- twice over. Photographers captured this father-and-daughter shot just two-and-a-half weeks after Kennedy had narrowly defeated Richard Nixon in the race for the Presidency of the United States. But this stroll around the block with daughter Caroline and her Raggedy Ann doll was no victory lap; rather it was a moment of normalcy for the President-elect in what was bound to have been a hectic day following a frenetic campaign. As election day had approached, so had another momentous event: The birth of another child. This picture was taken on November 25, 1960 -- the day John F. Kennedy, Jr. was born.

You could debate who was the sexiest female sex symbol of the 1970s -- you could say that Lynda "Wonder Woman" carter had the most heroically Amazonian figure, or that Raquel Welch had an untouchable smoldering exoticism, or that Catherine "Daisy Duke" Bach had the best, uh, jean shorts. But there's no debate about the hair. Farrah Fawcett owned the hair prize in the 1970s. She had an epically tousled, feathered look. Her feathers had feathers. A California condor with a 10-foot wingspan didn't have this many feathers. There was nothing like it. The controlled chaos of Fawcett's hair was on full display in her 1976 photo shoot with Bruce McBroom, which yielded the iconic red-swimsuit image that would adorn teenage boys' rooms all over the country for years to come.
