Style Icon: Ella Raines


The beautiful Ella has managed to seep into my subconscious since watching The Web, Impact and The Phantom Lady. She is the perfect icon, all side swept hair and lingering looks, but it was her beautiful up do in The Phantom Lady that had me swooning, it's kind of a tough look but I think it can look really elegant. I have been getting the hang of replicating it now, but kinda end up looking half Gibson girl.

  7. I've always thought she had such an admirable sense of fashion, too. Very chic, classic and sophisticated - I tend to think of her style as jiving quite similarly with Lauren Bacall's.
