Welcome to my Wordpress blog

I found more photographs of celebrities in kimonos.
These are in addition to the celebrities in kimonos I also have HERE.

Everyone loves a kimono, regardless of gender, status or era.

John & Yoko Lennon



Gwen Stefani.
Ever gorgeous. I love that ichimatsu obi.

I suspect her tag was meant to say #pricelessjapan


Shirley Temple
Looking cute in a Shichi-go-san kimono.



Culture Club, with Boy George.
George wears a colourful kakeshita kimono while the other band members go for monochrome patterned cotton yukatas.



Evelyn Nesbitt.
She is wearing a kimono that cost $3,000 way back in 1900. Evelyn Nesbit was a popular American chorus girl, an artists’ model and then an actress. She lived a life of controversy and died in 1967, aged 82.



Audrey Hepburn.
Wearing a lovely houmongi kimono .



David Bowie in kimono.
He seemed to have a great liking of Japanese Kimonos and, of course, his Ziggy Stardust tour costumes were designed by a Japanese designer, Kansai Yamamoto. I think his short kimono type garment in the photo below is by Kansai Yamamoto.



Marlene Dietrich posing in a very beautiful, Japanese furisode kimono, with striking design of Japanese cranes. Cranes signify loyalty and longevity.

Did you know that Japanese, red crowned cranes dance for each other. Not just to win a mate, they mate for life and continue to dance for each other. It is such an endearing trait.


Someone had coloured the above photo, I prefer monochrome photos left without added colour, so below it the original verison.


Gene Simmons from Kiss.
I posted this in a previous post but feel he should be in one that lists kimono clad celebrities.


Princess Diana

Judy Garland in Easter Parade.


Rita Ora.
One of my vintage, silk kimonos, from, modelled by the beautiful Rita Ora.
