One of my favorite portraits
Though this is a poor reproduction, this image of Louise Brooks remains one of my favorite portraits of the actress. It is also one of the first I remember feeling smitten over.
There is something about it. The perfection of her bob. The imperfection of her bangs. The tilt of her head. The reluctant smile. The direction of her chin.
And, I like the sailor's suit-like dress she is wearing. It suggests, if only subconsciously, something slightly androgynous about the actress.
Is this all about me? Or do you feel it too?
