Thirties • The Thirties Look

The film star look.

Each era has a "look" which women of the time aspire to. This is the "look" which nineteen-thirties young women wanted to achieve.
It can help in dating portraits if we recognise their ambition.

This was the decade of the silver screen. When it came to style inspiration was to be found at the cinema.
The thirties woman wanted a lean clean cut appearance. She needed an air of sophistication. Well groomed and interesting.
