Model/Styling: Miss T

Miss T is a huge fan of Clara Bow & with the arrival of her flapper wig, we just had to play! This is what we came up with…enjoy!

Clara Gordon Bow (July 29, 1907 – September 27, 1965) was an American actress and sex symbol, who rose to fame in the silent film era of the 1920s. Clara was renowned for her sexual magnetism and became known around the world as “The It girl”, where “It” was commonly understood to mean sex appeal. Though she had terrible self-esteem and was painfully shy, she is known as the the quintessential flapper.

    What great classic look in this image. It’s like a Hollywood promo shot for a 1940’s movie star.

  • This is a quick edit because I was so happy with the outcome, but I think later on I might make it a bit more 20s to suit that era of Clara Bow
