    Who would want to forget these two iconic performers?? I remember being a little girl and pretending to be Carmen Miranda. I could never get the right headress, though. But I really tried to dance like her.

    As a kid, I recall seeing her dancing with bowls of fruit on her head.

    Many were unaware she had a cousin, Carleton.

    It is believed that Carmen Miranda suffered a heart attack during this appearance with Jimmy Durante, she died of a second heart attack in her home that same night.

    I dressed up like her one year for a big Halloween party. I had made my headdress out of plastic fruit but it still felt like it weighed a ton. By the end of the evening my neck and head hurt so bad I thought I'd pass out. I won second prize, though.
