Beauty Icon - Louise Brooks

Welcome to our new feature - Beauty Icon. Here. we take a look at actresses, singers, models and other prominent social or historical figures who have made a statement with their beauty and style.

This week we’re looking at Louise Brooks, the silent film star who made it ultra-fashionable for women to wear their hair short and sharp.

Best known for her breakthrough role in 1929’s Pandora’s Box, Brooks’ blunt-cut fringe and highly glossy jet dark hair set off a worldwide trend. Perfectly manicured brows, pale skin, and dark velvety lips finished off her striking and captivating look.

In 1938, Brooks retired from Hollywood at a young age, and it’s said that she was later discovered working at a sales clerk at American department store Saks.
