it girl

i’m surprised hollywood hasn’t made a movie about clara bow yet, who had a classic rags to riches tale with a semi sad and tragic ending. i must admit i didn’t know much about her, apart from admiring pictures of that classic twenties flapper look and that she was a famous actress of the silent screen.

Legendary once, curiously unknown today, Clara Bow is both a heroine and a victim of silence. For the original “IT girl,” the first sex symbol and most popular female icon of the wildly modern, jazz, gin, sex and cinema-filled decade of the Twenties, there was also a hell of a lot of noise. That her name is not as familiar as Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo, Mae West or Marilyn Monroe, despite the fact that she was more famous than all of them, is testament to the power of public opinion to silence the very personality it helped to create.

snappy dresser

i don’t ever feature contemporary men’s fashion because (a) i have no interest in it and (b) 99% of the time it’s too metro looking for my liking. do people still use that term, metrosexual? well i hope you understand what i mean. it’s more about aesthetics really – i appreciate men who don’t wear their pants down their bums, who steer clear of t-shirts with arbitrary slogans (or anything made by ed hardy), who wear clean shoes, who tuck in their shirts, who don’t undo their buttons all the way down to their chests, who don’t wear jewellery – things that are just supposed to come naturally. other than that i don’t really group men and fashion in the same category.

that doesn’t mean that snappy dressers don’t make my head turn.
