Curio: Iconic Eyes

Alexa here. I was so sad to hear of Lena Horne's passing on Sunday. She defined iconic, with her distinctive voice and beauty ("seen in doe-like eyes set against perfectly chiseled cheekbones"). Heck, I was proud to name my daughter Lena. Maybe it was the combined influence of Nathaniel's great eulogy and his eyeball first and last that made me snap up this little pouch at Brooklyn Quilting Exchange yesterday, featuring Lena's unmistakable eyes:


Lori of the shop has made many more pouches featuring iconic eyes, and I'm loving them all. Can you identify these other stares? (You can find them all here, but no cheating!)
