Jayne Mansfield, In The Pink

In 1957 LIFE Magazine did a feature on Jayne Mansfield, one of the major 1950’s sext symbols, in her home. I thought what better time pour over these then leading up to Valentine’s Day? Pretty much everything in her house was either pink or shaped like a heart (or in some cases both). From floor to ceiling pink shag in the master bath, to a heart shaped fireplace… She lived there with Mickey Hargitay, her husband at the time, a contractor/body builder/actor, naturally. He is seen in a few of the photos with her, they have a very “Tarzan and Jane” vibe together.
