Birthday Wishes For the Wonderful Joanne Woodward

In honor of the fabulous Mrs. Paul Newman's birthday today, I am sharing with you these pictures from a vintage McCall's magazine.
Ms. Woodward was modeling fashions designed by Pierre Cardin for McCall's Patterns:

With apologies to Monsieur Cardin, I'm not sure I care much for those last two - but I'm sure that in 1958 they were all the rage!
Dear, beautiful, Joanne - I hope you are coping well. We were all so sorry when your husband passed. I hope that you will be able to enjoy your first birthday without him in the company of your loved ones. Wishing you all the best.

I always admired their marriage. It isn't easy to stay married so long, even if you aren't in show business! Happy birthday Ms. Woodward.

Happy birthday, Joanne! I've loved you and Paul forever.

Have to agree with you there, H. Unless maybe they are maternity dresses, or ??
