So You Wanna Look Like…Veronica Lake?!?!
Photos and Video by Heidi Hastings
I’ve always loved the screen legends that we refer to as Old Hollywood. Those women had a sultriness that set them apart. Veronica Lake was one of the sultriest sirens of all. I love how the Hollywood icons always looked fashionable (even when they went to bed). I miss the glamour of the screen sirens so I hope you enjoy my attempt to bring this look back.
How to Get the Look:
Lipstick- Revlon “Certainly Red”
Foundation- Revlon Photoready
Estee Lauder Bronzer
Eyes- Cover Girl Lashblast mascara
Nailpolish in “Revlon Red”
Hair- Curled and styled over one of your eyes (Lake almost always wore her hair over one of her eyes).
The vintage slip dress was purchased from the Goodwill for .50!! Isn’t that amazing??!!! I draped some chiffon over her shoulders to give the dress a diaphanous feel.
Inspiration- Veronica Lake
