Style Crush: Clara Bow

Recently I watched the silent film, "It," starring Clara Bow. I'm usually not a fan of romantic comedies, but I fell in love with this one.

The film is about shop girl named Betty Lou, (Clara Bow), who works at a large department store known as "Walthams." The handsome owner of Walthams (Antonio Moreno), notices her while dining at "the Ritz," and is instantly captivated by her beauty and presence. Betty captivates him so because she posses "IT." "IT" It is described as a "peculiar quality... which attracts others of the opposite sex. The possessor of 'IT' [is] un-selfconscious, and [has] that magnetic 'sex appeal' which is irresistible."

The outfits that she wore in the film were adorable, and she was equally as fashionable in real life.

She had a flirtatious, feminine, and classic sense of style.

Her quirky sensibility, glamorous style and alluring beauty still mesmerize people today.
