I also think that there was a lot of goth to the look, if to take aside the vampire and zombie movies of that time, even the mainstream [heroin chic etc.] fashion and outlook were, in my opinion, morbid, dark and elegant.
Here's the first of my favorite actresses, Theda Bara [Theodosia Burr Goodman]. She was an american silent film actress, was known for her famme fatale roles and was one of the first sex symbols in film! I adore her for her beautiful face and big eyes, her somewhat mystical roles.
The blog's headline picture is of her as well :)
Goth? I think very.
I adore the makeup, the clothing, everything... this inspires me so much when searching for new looks.
The second actress that I love is Pola Negri [Barbara Apolonia Chalupiec]. She was a polish actress who later became famous in talking film as well.
Do you have any silent film [or talking film] inspirations? Please do share.
