Style Icon of 1920’s Era: Josephine Baker

February 5, 2012

When conversation comes up about the predominate styles worn during the Roaring 20’s Jazz Age era, the name Josephine Baker will always undoubtedly be mentioned.  Why?  She was one of the most influential women alive during that period whose graceful image and style had a major impact on how women dressed then and now.  Whether the sleek hairstyles, bold jewelry or cloche hats donned by her – when designers pull inspiration from that era, surely they take a page from her style book.
