Beauty Icon: Jessica Lange

As a child growing up in Cloquet, Minnesota, Lange wore out her copy of Gone With the Wind and reportedly reenacted Melanie's deathbed scene in front of her bedroom mirror. The visual arts would be her medium of choice in college, which is how she met her first husband, photographer Paco Grande, who convinced her to drop out of school and elope with him to Europe.
