Rita Hayworth, a true legend of the silver screen who captured the imagination of audiences throughout the 1940s and 1950s with her astonishing beauty and and talent, continues to be a source of inspiration.
Indeed Montblanc pays homage to her glamour, sensuality and charismatic figure, with a pen dubbed ‘Rita Hayworth Limited Edition46’.
Taking inspiration from her 1946 release of Gilda which propelled her to international fame, the limited edition fountain pen is designed after the actress’ iconic role of the ultimate temptress.
The fountain pen’s translucent green lacquer is reminiscent of Hayworth’s seductive satin gown that she wore for the film poster. The wavy guilloche on the cap and barrel crafted from 750 solid gold and the mandarin-coloured citrine on the clip mirrors Hayworth’s bright red hair. The shape of the writing instrument imitates her sensuous figure, while the diamond-studded cap top and cap ring are a reference to the glamour she projected as the epitome of Hollywood royalty.
The handcrafted 750 gold nib features a hole shaped like a heart, while the pen is crowned with the Montblanc emblem in the finest mother-of-pearl.
