Style Icon: Norma Shearer

I have recently fell in love with Norma, I watched Escape (1940) with Robert Taylor and Conrad Veidt and couldn't believe how utterly gorgeous and charming she was. Upon stumbling through various images of her, I have become very inspired, and do believe tomorrow I shall attempt some sort of faux bob finger wave in honour of her.

  6. I love Norma Shearer, too! Have you seen A Free Soul? It's pre-code and stars Norma along with Lionel Barrymore, Leslie Howard and Clark Gable.
