icon: Gloria Swanson

6 Jul

Over to NYC and our favourite hipster mag ‘Papermag‘ where our favourite writer (possibly of all time) shares with us an Icon from the golden age of Hollywood, and one who has possible never quite received the recognition she truly deserved.

A silent screen goddess and legendary style icon (are we alone in wishing that the screen sirens of today would be a little more, well, 1940′s in their style???), Gloria fell somewhat out of favour with the advent of the ‘talkies’ but rebounded to make a huge comeback in the 1950 classic Sunset Boulevard. Queen Kelly which she introduces on the video above was, though a spectacular flop – to find out why, and to read more word of his gorgeous wisdom visit the wonderful Mr Mickey and click, juuuuuuust.  Here.
