Most beautiful dumb girls think they are smart and get away with it, because other people, on the whole, aren't much smarter. ---Louise Brooks
You know her face. Even if you don't know her name, you know the trademark bob hair style, the dark sultry eyes and the pouty lips. Louise Brooks. Legendary 1920's silent film star. Trendsetter, a dame way ahead of her time.
Everybody who knows the Zampster knows Louise Brooks is my idol, my girl dejour. If I could pick from a heavenly line-up of women I'd most choose to look like, it would be this beauty. Not so much because of her gorgeous, obvious looks--but because of her mystery, her sex appeal, her class.
Even without the trademark kohl-lined eyes, she had natural beauty. A glow.
...and then more versatility
But one of the reasons I've always admired her beauty was the grace in which she aged. Though dark beauty can fade, true deep-down-in-the-soul class and grace cannot be dimmed. Nothing can touch it.
Louise in 1957
Just look at those elegant lines...
Years did not diminish her inner warmth, that exquisite glow that came from deep within.
Among her last photos, she still maintined that regal beauty, still the goddess, still that fabulous glow.
Yes, not only the men can hold their own in the aging department. If true beauty resides deep within us, it will shine, even when we are mere memories.
Oh, Louise, you are so my idol.
