Peggy Fleming Brought Classic Glamour To The Winter Olympics (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

As the Sochi Winter Olympic Games continue, we are taking a look back at figure skating legend Peggy Fleming. Back in 1968, Fleming won the Ladies' singles Olympic gold medal in figure skating at the 1968 Winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, France. Not only did she win big, she did it with graceful beauty.

We are still obsessing over Fleming's luminous skin, bold brows and amazing lashes. Unlike some of her successors, who go overboard with the glitter and colorful makeup, Fleming toned it down with a neutral makeup palette that makes us wish our skin looked that good.

Find out how to recreate Peggy Fleming's classic glamour below.
