Dreaming of ... The Look of Pola Negri

Diva, dark beauty and exotic glamor puss, Pola Negri was the silent screen vamp deluxe.
Pola introduced the turban as a
fashion statement to Hollywood
Utterly unique, long after her gaze shifted elsewhere, you never forgot the "look" of Pola:
Sophisticated
Mysterious

Bold
Wistful


Fiery
Elegant

Suffering

Seductive

Chic

Tempting

Inquisitive

Playful

Passionate


Contemplative

Deep
Yes, they had faces then, didn't they?

  1. She was fascinating. Thanks for these rarely-seen pics. Do you think the love affair with Rudolph Valentino was legit--or a (very long) publicity stunt?

  2. I think that their affair was very real, although Rudy may have to have died to get away from her! But, they looked genuinely happy together during their affair.

    1. I always wondered about that: her very public and showy mourning and all...

      Thanks!

  3. With Pola - it was always all about her. She was a publicity hound first and foremost!

  4. She was gorgeous! In the silent film era, they surely knew how to express emotions, and who wouldn't want to stare into those eyes of hers.
