Our first Miss Modish Muse of the New Year!
I was initially looking for some vintage photos of women wearing menswear (I still may do that post later) and I stumbled upon this photo of Louise Brooks in a suit:
She strikes me as such an individual- a trend-setter, not a follower. She popularized this bob haircut of hers- women just had to have it after seeing how alluring she was on screen, wanting to be like her. I've really never been interested in watching a silent movie for some reason, but I'd give it a shot to see what she's like- to see what woman caused such a stir in society back then.
So gorgeous. I wish I could see her in color. I bet those lips are painted red, red, red. Have any of you ever seen a movie of hers? Which would you recommend? Have you seen any silent movies before? My interest is piqued.
Oh and look? She wrote a memoir called Lulu in Hollywood. Another thing I have to check out!
