It’s Friday again, and here’s my favorite gal of the week: the stunning Louise Brooks. She was a popular silent film star in the 1920s and became, along with Clara Bow, a sex and style icon. Her bobbed haircut soon became a hit and young women would go to the hairdresser and ask for the bob cut, popularized by Brooks.
If you haven’t seen any of her movies, I’d recommend you to check out Pandora’s Box and Diary of a lost girl, probably her biggest hits.
In the 1930s she declared bankruptcy and quit acting. Although her career on the big screen was short, she became very popular during her active years.
OMG, seeing pics of her makes me want to cut my hair again and turn it into a bob, it looks amazingly gorgeous!
What Can we say about the beautiful Anna Karina? She was a total babe back in the 60s, thanks to the Nouvelle Vague and her soon to be husband, director Jean-Luc Godard. She has starred in masterpieces such as Vivre Sa Vie, Pierrot le fou and Alphaville. Probably one of the most controversial characters she portrayed was in Vivre Sa Vie, where she played a young and intellectual prostitute who sold her body to experience new things.
Not only she became Jean-Luc Godard‘s muse: she also became his wife.
Her style has changed throughout the years, but always keeping it classy and very european. Look at her carefully: she could rock a beret, look fabulous with messy hair and beautiful with no make up on.
Uno de los iconos pop de los 60 es Twiggy. ¿Quién no ha oído hablar de ella?
Fue la modelo que revolucionó las pasarelas y la moda de la época: corte andrógino, cara de niña y mucho, mucho estilo.
Su imagen se usado en muchos anuncios y campañas publicitarias: su maquillaje de exceso contrasta con su delgada y pequeña estatura. Se convirtió en la primera supermodelo británica, y nunca renegó de sus orígenes de clase obrera. Y casi 50 años después de su debut se la sigue asociando con la palabra “cool”.
Twiggy, that 60s icon. Who has never heard of her?
She was the model who changed fashion from that era: androgynous haircut, baby face and style, a lot of style.
Her image has been used in lots of commercials and ads: her excessive make up contrasts with her tiny body. She became the first british supermodel and never hid her middle-class roots. And nearly 50 years after her debut, she still is associated with the word “cool”.
