Red Hot Riding Hood

Carol Burnett – American comedienne and actress most famous for her own variety show, The Carol Burnett Show (1967-1978). She also appeared on Mama’s Family in a few episodes reprising the role of Eunice that she created with co-star Vickie Lawrence, and as Jamie’s mother on Mad About You. In addition, she’s done several films and voice-overs. However, she will most likely be remembered most for her ear-tugging salute to her grandmother, her hilarious Tarzan call, and her parody of Gone with the Wind called Went with the Wind.~25 Famous Redheads

Vincent Van Gogh (My favorite Artist!
Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) – Dutch post-Impressionist painter who lived in relative obscurity, yet, his paintings routinely fetch the largest sums at auctions. Probably best known for Starry Night, he was beset by a myriad of mental disturbances, and famously cut off the lobe of his ear in 1888.~25 Famous Redheads
Joan Harris Hallaway (i admit, she's probably my #1 Redhead!)
Joan P. Harris (née Holloway) is afictional character on AMC'S television series Mad Men. She is portrayed by Christina Hendricks. Embodying the role of femme fatale, Holloway is a "bold" and "sassy" character. Creating the character, Mad Men's creator Mathew Weiner tried not to make the character appear as a television stereotype, but unpredictable and complicated. The Boston Globe has said that Holloway occupies "a sort of middle ground between the show's main female characters, who represent opposing paths for women of their day"; as Betty Draper gave up a modeling career to become a housewife and Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) tries to become a copywriter in "a world where men routinely call women 'girls', and sometimes literally chase them through the office".Holloway is considered the queen bee of the office secretarial pool. In the season two episode "Maidenform" each secretary is categorized as either a Marlyn Monroe or a Jackie Kennedy as a campaign for Playtex, when asked what kind of woman Holloway is, Kinsey answers "Well, Marilyn's really a Joan, not the other way around"~Wikipedia
Shirley Jane Temple (born April 23, 1928), later known as Shirley Temple Black, is an American film and television actress, singer, dancer, autobiographer, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.

She received a special Academy Award in February 1935, and film hits such as Curly Top and Heidi followed year after year during the mid to late 1930s

Who didn't make my Top Favs list? Here's a shocker of a 'Runner Up':
Jessica Rabbit is Roger's human buxom wife in the book and movie. In the book, she was an immoral, up-and-coming star and former comic character, over whom her estranged husband, comic strip star Roger Rabbit, obsessed. She is re-imagined in the film as a sultry, but moral, cartoon singer at a Los Angeles supper club called The Ink and Paint Club. She is one of several suspects in the framing of her husband, who is a famous cartoon star~ Wikipedia
Now mind you she's probably the hottest red head that ever did grace one's lips but thing is, though i love her, her sexuality, her appeal to parody and her damn plain old awesomeness, i think Red is hotter AND is higher than likely her inspiration..
For the crazies in the crowd who don't know Jessica Rabbit she's the human wife of Roger Rabbit from the movie 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit" I was so obsessed with her as a child, i saw her somewhere and was drawn in by her curves, sass and sensuality. She was probably the character that help me 'perfect' the female form in my drawings. I remember being in what was probably the forth grade and having kids line up for me to draw them a copy of this famous gal.
Gotta love it!
