One Nordic fan's love of Louise Brooks

Varja Linnea Askeland Hellesø is a big fan of Louise Brooks. So much so, she has styled her hair like Brooks and set up a small display of some of her treasured possessions in her home in Nässjö, Sweden. Here is one of her displays.


She has a great collection, don't you think. And here are snapshots of a couple of others displays.



Varja Linnea Askeland Hellesø  has also drawn portraits of Louise Brooks, a few of which she has posted to Twitter and Facebook pages. That's where we noticed them. Here is an example of her work.


And lastly, her is a portrait of Varja Linnea Askeland Hellesø herself, posing as Lulu in the courtroom scene from Pandora's Box (1929).
