Check out these beautiful photos that legendary photographer Gordon Parks took of singer/dancer/actress Eartha Kitt when she was just 25 years old. She is pictured sitting in the streets in 1950s NYC and below on her bicycle.
Eartha passed away in late 2008 at the age of 81, but she will forever be known for her sultry voice, dance moves, sex appeal and her outspokenness. She was and still is an international symbol of elegance and sensuality.
