Glamourizing the beret


Berets are classics and for good reason.  Everyone can wear a beret but the trick is getting the angle right.  Just experiment with it: is it better dipping to right or left (very few people’s faces are symmetrical so the effect will be quite different).

Or perhaps you prefer it pushed back off the face a la Faye Dunaway’s Bonnie Parker?  Or maybe your beret is the serious kind – a French intellectual, or a tudor-style Thomas Cromwell?

This one was inspired by Steichen’s iconic 1924 image of Gloria Swanson, eyes piercing through a veil of black lace.
