The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat

Oh, Carmen Miranda, when we grow up, can we be just like you? Flouncing around town in a fruity hat, all the while hypnotizing every man in sight.

Among Carmen's most amazing work is the 1943 technicolor musical by Busby Berkeley - a classic girl-meets-boy love story featuring scantily clad women dancing around with six-foot long bananas.

With all those bananas bouncing around, the film was widely censored and banned from the screens of Carmen's home country Portugal.

Seriously, watch this:

One last picture of our hot momma, you know, just lounging around. This is how she rolls.
