Welcome to my new series; Style Icon! I will be featuring those whose style is a great inspiration to me both current and from the past. First up is 1940's screen star, Linda Darnell. She encompasses classic 1940's style and was so beautiful, I am surprised she is not more well known.
Born in Texas in 1923 she started modeling when she was 11. It wasn't long until she made her way to Hollywood. The movie Star Dust (1940) put her on the map. Two of my favorites are; A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and Fallen Angel (1945).
I love this whole look! Turban, crochet cardigan and those nails!
Can I please look like this when I ride my bike?
