miss kitt to you

Eartha Kitt once said the public had been her fairy godmother.  Born on January 17, 1927 on a cotton plantation in South Carolina under the most abject of circumstances, she would go on to become the epitome of sophistication and glamour or as Orson Welles put it, "the most exciting woman in the world."

If your only experience with Eartha Kitt is "Santa Baby" or the final season of the Batman TV series, you must remedy this immediately.  Her distinctive singing style and clever songs ("Old-Fashioned Girl" is a particular favourite of mine) will add 67% more glamour to your day.  Guaranteed.
