Film/Style: Lena Horne

The lovely, graceful and stylish Lena Horne passed away in NY yesterday at 92. Lena was a trailblazer, the first black performer to be signed to a long-term contract by a major Hollywood studio and who went on to achieve international fame as a singer. Lena will always be remembered for her voice as well as her tireless activism on behalf of civil rights.
