Cyd Charisse (March 8, 1922 – June 17, 2008) was an American actress and dancer.
Charisse was born as Tula Ellice Finklea in Amarillo, Texas. Her nickname "Sid" was taken from a sibling trying to say "Sis" (It was later spelled "Cyd" at MGM to give her an air of mystery.)
She was a sickly girl who started dancing lessons at six to build up her strength after a bout with polio. At 12, she studied ballet in Los Angeles with Adolph Bolm and Bronislava Nijinska, and at 14, she auditioned for and subsequently danced in the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo as "Felia Siderova" and, later, "Maria Istomina".
Charisse entered films in the 1940s. Her roles usually focused on her abilities as a dancer, and she was paired with Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.
Charisse was married to singer Tony Martin from 1948 until her death. The marriage lasted 60 years. Charisse's first husband, whose surname she kept, was Nico Charisse (March 1906 – April 1970); they were married from 1939 to 1947.
Her height was 5' 7½" (1.71 m).
Cyd Charisse was featured in the 2001 Guinness Book of World Records under "Most Valuable Legs", since a $5 million insurance policy was reportedly accepted on her legs in 1952.

Olivia Jordan is Miss World United States 2013 and Miss USA 2015. She will represent the United States at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant.
Olivia was born September 28, 1988 in Tulsa, Oklahoma where she spent most of her youth. She attended Bishop Kelley High School where she was active on campus, delegating her time away from the books to Student Council, the tennis team, and her position as varsity cheer captain. After high school graduation, she decided to venture beyond her home in middle America. At Boston University, Olivia majored in Health Science and worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer at BU's FITREC facility. Her go-getter personality kept her involved on campus, pioneering a self-defense workshop that would become a continued tradition in her sorority, Alpha Phi. Upon graduating, Olivia moved to Los Angeles to pursue her lifelong passion for acting and modeling. She has been featured on screen, but has yet to have her "big break." She epitomizes the term, "student of life." Her unique and unfaltering optimism and relentless determination sets her apart. A dogged dreamer with a level head held high on her shoulders-a lover of love, life, and pugs-you will be seeing more of her as she continues to make her mark in the acting world.
She is 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in). Her measurements: breast - 82 cm, waist - 66 cm, hips - 89 cm.
