Louise Brooks: Fashion Icon

Louise Brooks was an American dancer, model, showgirl, and silent film actress. She was noted for popularizing the bobbed haircut. She is best known for her three roles in Pandora's Box, Diary of a Lost Girl, and Prix de Beaute'. She starred in 17 silent films. Louise Brooks was the queen of flappers. She wasn't really into talking and so her beauty became very popular in these silent movies. It's not that she wasn't good enough to be in talking movies the truth is she just wasn't really interested enough. Many of her films were heavily censored. This was because in that time sexuality was very shocking and "adult." Sadly on August 8, 1985, Louise Brooks was found dead from a heart attack. She was buried in Sepulchre cemetery in Rochester, New York. To me she was one to portray the beauty of female hood and she was one that was ever so classy.
