Bombshells: Carole Lombard

Carole Lombard is a true style icon. She could pull off casual looks just as well as complete silver screen glamour. A natural beauty, best known for her screwball comedies of the 1930s, she is still an inspiration.

A young Carole (born Jane Alice Peters) in the 1920's. Those eyes were made for black and white films.

Super stylish. I love this outfit. 

Stunning Old Hollywood glamour. You can see why she was the highest paid actress in her time. 

She is known for saying: “I’ve lived by a man’s code designed to fit a man’s world, yet at the same time I never forget that a woman’s first job is to choose the right shade of lipstick.” 

The love's of their lives. I can't imagine a better looking couple! 

Clark Gable- swoon! 

Carole was tragically killed in a plane crash with her Mother in 1942 at the age of 33. Her and Clark were only married for 3 years. So sad. 

Her style inspiration and wonderful films will always live on.

Bombshells: Flapper Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford was destined and determined to be a star. To get herself noticed she became a Flapper along the likes of Clara Bow. She was signed to MGM in 1925 and started her career in silent movies. I love the Joan Crawford of the 1920's and 1930's. When we think of Joan Crawford, we think of a severe glamour of the 1940's, we think of Mommie Dearest. In her early career she was spirited, relaxed and very stylish!

A young Crawford with a blonde bob! 

Pencil thin brows. So glamorous! 

A quintessential Flapper! 

Those eyes! 

Even glamorous in relaxed American sportswear.
