Gloria and Lillian

Darling B,

You’re absolutely right, the Royal Wedding certainly had its share of inimitable hats.  But you know me, always glancing back, I couldn’t help but think about two of early Hollywood’s most intoxicating stars, each a dazzling, pioneering milliner’s dream:  Gloria Swanson and Lillian Gish.

Wishing you well,


Silent film stars Gloria Swanson and Lillian Gish

Gish, early 1920's

One the screen's first provocateurs

i like them to think of them as an orchid and a rose



The adolescent years of moving pictures were stunning, weren't they?

Lillian Gish, October 14, 1893 – February 27, 1993

A surge of divine. Gloria Swanson, March 27, 1899 – April 4, 1983
