Actually, I think in that first shot it's more the lips that have it than the eyes... what the hell was she thinking? Or, you know, whoever started that crazy way back when...

I just find the eyes in the first pic absolutely magnetic. Limpid. So expressive. And look at that Jean Harlow! That jezebel!
