Louise Brooks had a unique style that has influenced everyone from Isabella Rosellini to Leigh Lezark to Kate Moss. It is all about the jet black bob hair, floaty flapper dresses, ballet tutus, luxourious silk blouses, satins, furs and of course her take on women wearing men's evening wear. Of course she may have been wearing colourful pieces, but I can't help thinking of her style in black and white!
