The 1920's have always been my favourite decade. I recently discovered Louise Brooks.
Brooks is considered one of the first naturalistic actors in film, her acting being subtle and nuanced compared to many other silent performers. The close-up was just coming into vogue with directors, and her almost hypnotically beautiful face was perfect for this new technique. Brooks had always been very self-directed, even difficult, and was notorious for her salty language, which she didn't hesitate to use whenever she felt like it. In addition, she had made a vow to herself never to smile on stage unless she felt compelled to, and although the majority of her publicity photos show her with a neutral expression, she had a dazzling smile.

I actually bought this magazine recently not realizing it was Lulu on the cover.
Here is a pic of me the day I got my hair cut. I am thinking of dyeing it a bit darker for fall.
Who/what are you inspired by?
