50 beautiful classic portraits from LIFE

In 1936, the first issue of LIFE magazine was published, which in all subsequent years began to publish photos of the most famous photographers around the world. The archive of LIFE, published until 1972, includes approximately 10 million photographs that the magazine has accumulated over the entire history of its existence.

The magazine's archive, of course, includes numerous portraits of both film and music celebrities, as well as iconic personalities of their time. Many of them have become classics of photography.
