The Coolest TV Moms and the fashion they’ve inspired – Part 1, The 1950′s and 1960′s

Lucille BallWe love TV. Love TV! No apologies here for our pop culture addiction. It seems so far back that TV moms were just you know…funny. And not because they got Botox live in front of cameras. (Or maybe we’re watching too much Bravo?)

So we are happy to present a three-part series on our favorite TV moms through the ages, and the fab fashion they inspired, sponsored by Xfinity from Comcast which helps you keep up with your favorite entertainment.




1950s: LUCY RICARDO

Sorry Donna Reed, you’ve got no chance against Lucy Ricardo,
who might just be the best TV mom in history, let alone the 1950′s. She
was the first official Hollywood mom on TV, her husband was hot, and
she didn’t lose her sense of humor with her placenta. That’s our kind of
mom. Besides, she rocked the polka dots and worked that red hair. You
could tell-even in black and white.

1960: SAMANTHA STEVENS
Admit
it, every one of you wanted to be Samantha Stevens when you grew up.
She was glamorous, resourceful, had a mind of her own, was mom to the
cutest girl on the planet, and hey…she was magic! (Plus she totally
switched husbands without anyone ever noticing.) And is it just us or
did Samantha sport the original bump-it and somehow make it look
awesome?

    I LOVE Lucille Ball! And I would love to dress like that everyday. Sigh. (FYI, I am wearing a sweatsuit right now- DKNY and all that, but it is still a SWEATSUIT!. Sigh again.)
