Louise Brooks











I came across photos of Louise Brooks completely by accident this morning. I could not believe how beautiful she was and how amazing she looked in photographs. I really didn’t know that much about her.

She was born Mary Louise Brooks and was known for her bobbed haircut. She was a dancer and singer, who had no support from her parents. She was even molested as a young child, causing her to never feel comfortable in her relationships with men. She was born in Kansas and became one of the most recognizable silent film actresses of all time. She was an alcoholic since age 14, and had a poor reputation with men. She was married twice, but never had children. There were many rumors throughout her life about her possible bisexuality, but she merely chalked it up to being more comfortable with women. Here are some amazing images of Louise Brooks. Have a fantastic day friends!

  1. Such a stunning (and hugely talented!) woman. She had the kind of eyes that seemed to pierce right through you, but in a sweet way, like a puppy almost.

    Thank you very much for your impute regarding my strangely behaving hot roller set, honey, I really appreciate it!

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. Thank you so much for all the feedback friends. I love her bob and wish I had the face to pull it off! Kori xoxo

  3. I’ve always been a big fan of the older Hollywood movies. I took a humanities through the film course back in college and I’ve been hooked ever since. My favorite is the 30’s,40’s, and 50’s. I personally feel that the Vietnam era in the 60’s redirected Hollywood and in doing so it lost something great. Something classic on screen that we are missing today.

    Great photos and post! Sad to hear about her past.

  4. I had seen her photos before, but never knew her name, or anything of her life. Fascinating.
    Love the new look of your blog! The pink and black dots are perfectly suited to both the name and the theme!

  5. Isn’t she a stunner? The hairstyle never dates – hers was the eponymous bob! I saw Pandora’s Box – she made the screen come alive – you couldn’t take your eyes off her. I can’t believe she made so few films. Mind you, she grew the bob out and tried acting with long hair as her look made her such a style icon. It didn’t work, hence the slow slide into obscurity. Shame.
