Eartha Kitt, American actress, singer, and cabaret star died yesterday at age 81. She was best known for her song "Santa Baby" and her role as Catwoman on the 1960's Batman TV series.
Academy Award-winning American director Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world". Her persona is that of the ultimate
femme fatale. Readers may recognize her in the movie Holes as Madame Zeroni.
Eartha Kitt spoke out admirably on controversial issues, often doing performances for the benefit of HIV/AIDS research. She even caused a stir when she ma
de anti-war statements during a White House luncheon with Lady Bird Johnson 1968.
"I am a mother and I know the feeling of having a baby come out of my gut. I have a baby and then you send him off to war. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot." --Eartha Kitt
Eartha was known for her striking looks, a mixture of her African, Cherokee, and German descent. However, she has said, “I have never thought of mys
elf as a race. I have always thought of myself as a communicator who has no race”.
She was nominated twice for Broadway's Tony Award: in 1978, as Best Actress (Musical) for "Timbuktu!"; and in 2000, as Best Actress (Featured Role - Musical) for "The Wild Party."
“I do not have an act. I just do Eartha Kitt. Eartha Kitt is my act and I am still learning from her. Not that I want to be perfect. I do not believe in perfection. What do you do with perfection? I want to be whoever Eartha Kitt is until the gods take me wherever they take me.”

Also, there were so many awesomelydressedpeople there.
The buzz that swarms around the front row is so cool. And I saw Fern Mallis!
When I exited the tent there was a guy with a huge illustration of Anna Wintour that had signatures all over it. He said it was going to auction and asked me to sign it in black sharpie because people in the fashion industry signed it in red. I told him that one day I would legit work in fashion and whoever bought the picture would be glad they had my signature! ;]
Haha, that's enough coverage for now, I think :]
