Happy Birthday Lulu!

Happy Birthday to my favourite flapper, Louise Brooks. Born on November 14, 1906 in Cherryvale, Kansas, she was a star of both stage and screen. Louise left an indelible mark on film history with her portrayal of Lulu, the beautiful seductress who destroys the men who cross her path in Pandora's Box (1929). She also inspired generations of women to copy her hairstyle, including me. So here's to the woman who was the bee's knees. May her star continue to shine bright.
