Vintage Starlet of the Day



Clara Bow. In the early 1920's Clara escaped poverty and abuse by getting into film. Not only did Clara turn out to be an amazingly talented actress, but she became America's first sex symbol. I had never seen anything with Clara before, so I checked out a couple clips on Youtube. She's adorable! I instantly fell in love with her charm and playful style. Oh, and don't forget about those gorgeous flapper outfits! I definitely need to get some of her movies.
