Leila Hyams by Ruth Harriet Louise (by Chickeyonthego)


"Here is something new in the way of evening frocks. Louise Brooks presents the very smartest and newest line for the fall frock that is formal. White chiffon, beaded with pearls and crystals, follows the lines of the figure closely to the knee and then flares into a very full circular cloud of plain chiffon. The short-long effect is gradually adhered to."

"I went to my father [film director Vincente Minnelli], and asked him, what can you tell me about thirties glamour? Should I be emulating Marlene Dietrich or something? And he said no, I should study everything I can about Louise Brooks." -Liza Minnelli on preparing for the role of “Sally Bowles” in Cabaret
