She began her career in silent films, and became famous for her acting skills as well as her beauty. Her even more famous hairstyle was dubbed “the Brooks Bob” and it became the 1920’s version of the Rachel. I would argue that her hairstyle was even more iconic, as we all instantly equate that particular type of bob with flappers. Wikipedia says Louise was known for her use of salty language and her sexual liberation. Sounds like my kind of gal. Louise embodies what I like to call “flapper chic.”
So salacious for the 1920’s!
Gorgeous, and I would kill for those earrings.
This picture would not look out of place in the Vogue magazine of today.
I adore the dark hair/dark lip combo with the white dress.
A photo from early in her career, note the extreme cupid’s bow lip, which she later toned down.
A rare photo in which she is smiling.
She looks so stunning, I almost want to cut my hair!
