Style Icon: Kay Francis


Those big eyes, the sloping eyebrows that stature, Kay Francis was one of the original clothes horses in Hollywood. She was known on the lot as the 'wvashing Kay Fwancis' for her inability to pronounce 'r's'. The way she wore clothes on the screen just makes me swoon, and she is such a loveable presence. Currently watching Jewel Robbery 1932 which is double winner for me as it also has my dear love William Powell in.

  4. LOVE Kay Francis. Her look and figure were just so perfect for those early 30s dresses and hats. Jewel Robbery is so much fun. Trouble in Paradise is another of my pre-code favorites.
