VERA ELLEN – WHITE CHRISTMAS
White Christmas is an absolute must-watch over the Holiday season and one of the many reasons to tune in is the beautiful Vera Ellen. Ellen was a trained dancer who worked with some of the best in the business from Fred Astaire to Gene Kelly. Though she only appeared in a few films before disappearing from the spotlight, White Christmas, is one of the few Christmas classics that has stood the test of time.

LAUREN GRAHAM – BAD SANTA
Lauren Graham made our Naughty List when she appeared in the black comedy Bad Santa in 2003. In Bad Santa, Graham played a brunette beauty with a penchant for men in Santa suits, and Billy Bob Thorton was the drunkard sex addicted mall Santa she set her sights on. The comedic duo had perfect chemistry and turned Graham into a Temptress overnight.

DONNA REED – IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE
Donna Reed was the golden girl of the 1940s. Her angelic reputation reached an all-time high in her role as the small-town housewife Mary Bailey in the iconic Christmas film, It’s A Wonderful Life. Few forget the first time they saw Reed rush into the last scene of the film proclaiming that the entire town had donated money to her husband, played by Jimmy Stewart. Reed remained America’s Sweetheart for decades.

CAMERON DIAZ – THE HOLIDAY
Christmas lights and holiday cheer might not immediately make you think of a leggy California blonde, unless you have been watching The Holiday. The 2006 yuletide comedy stars Cameron Diaz and the beautiful Kate Winslet as two strangers who use a home exchange website to switch residences for the holidays. Winslet ends up in California while Diaz heads to an English country cottage. Two vixens in one film? Sign us up!

MAUREEN O’HARA – MIRACLE ON 34th STREET
Pin-up girl Maureen O’Hara had talent and a stunning figure, landing her on our Temptress Magazine’s Top Ten Leading Ladies of Holiday Films list! With flaming red hair and killer curves, O’Hara starred in countless films, including the holiday favorite, Miracle On 34th Street. Irish-born O’Hara played a woman whose lack of belief in Santa Claus is challenged when a department store Santa claims to be the real deal.

BEVERLY D’ANGELO – NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION
Few actresses have the comedic timing and raw talent to hold their own against Chevy Chase, but Beverly D’Angelo starred opposite Chase in The National Lampoons Vacation series four times! D’Angelo played Chase’s wife in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, a film filled with holiday hijinks and one hilarious disaster after the next. D’Angelo put the ‘fun’ in the Griswold Family ‘dysfunction!’

ZOOEY DESCHANEL – ELF
Where would Santa Claus be without his quirky, blonde elf? Zooey Deschanel plays Santa’s little helper in the 2003 comedy, Elf, starring alongside Will Ferrell. Deschanel’s character, Jovie, helped save Christmas at the end of the film by singing ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ which launched Ferrell’s sleigh back into the night sky. Deschanel is one enticing elf!

MARJORIE REYNOLDS – HOLIDAY INN
Another classic film from old Hollywood, Holiday Inn stars the beautiful Marjorie Reynolds, landing her on our Temptress Magazine Top Ten Leading Ladies of Holiday Films. Reynolds performed in the Irving Berlin musical with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, making movie-musical holiday magic! While Reynolds did not end up having a very prolific career in Hollywood, Holiday Inn remains a festive favorite.

JAMIE LEE CURTIS – TRADING PLACES
Despite being released in the summer, Trading Places is often seen as a holiday film because it takes place during the happiest season of all! The film is about two men from different socio-economic backgrounds who trade places in a bet during the holiday season, but throughout much of the film keeping your eyes off of the amazing body of Jamie Lee Curtis proves difficult. Curtis played a prostitute named Ophelia whose skin tight dresses and bared breasts garnered Curtis the nickname “Freeze Frame” for the many times audiences paused their VCRs for a longer look.

PAULA GARCES – A VERY HAROLD AND KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS
More recently in 2011, Santa gifted us with a Columbian Christmas Temptress in the stoner comedy A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas. Paula Garces plays the exotic Maria Quesadilla, wife of Harold Lee, the title character. If you want to see the voluptuous Garces crawl around in some scarlet red negligee this is one holiday film you want to miss!
