Before the Hays
Some Joan Crawford Fashion


portrait by Ruth Harriet Louise
Can we just talk about the fabulousness of this? First of all the hair, my god, the hair. It’s so short and almost boyish. Actually, let’s just call it boyish. She looks like a boy. But then she’s got those half-moon eyebrows. So lunar. The thick neck, the nose. Did she have work done? I love the focus on her smooth perfect skin. And where on earth did that necklace come from. I wonder if this picture has ever been imitated?

    I love women’s furs, capes, outwear in the 20s and 30s. Joan was tiny but they made her look so powerful. How did that happen?
