louise brooks

so yeah, i'm obsessed about her right now after seeing the cover of her movie "pandora's box" yesterday. its been eighty years since that movie came out and she still remains to be one of the most powerful and enduring feminine image. sure she played the slut in most of her movies, but homegirl didn't give a fuck and even managed to play the first lesbian on screen. and after all these years, designers still look to brooks for inspiration and even models try to get a little piece of her (alison nix, and rachel alexander both rock brooks' haircut). and who can forget lanvin's fall/winter 07 collection when all the models wore louise brooks-like wigs? bad girls are always so deliciously good.
