GARBOESQUE
The Look



By the late 1920s and early 1930s women the world over were copying Garbo's makeup and hairstyle and what she wore. She paved the way for the modern woman of the 20th Century. In real life, Garbo was a simple dresser, with her turned up coat collar, slouch hat, flat-heeled shoes and pageboy haircut. Her eye mascara and makeup were her own doing; she never permitted beauticians at MGM to touch her.
