GLORIA S


INSPIRED BY
THE FABULOUS GLORIA SWANSON


A Delicate Headpiece : 
GLORIA S


I love Gloria Swanson , she was a fascinating woman and her life was incredible . She wrote her autobiography at 80 years old and it is one of my favorite books :) 




She became a famous actress early in the twenties , because she changed her allure to be a sophisticated and "avant garde" woman , wearing the most fashionable couturiers , as Paul Poiret , Chanel.
In the Twenties , the films she made , that made her a star , was more like fashion shows !
She wears in the majority of these films her own garments .
She was not the more beautiful , but the more elegant actress from this period .
