Indyra has done it again with yet another sophisticated retro look inspired by the Hollywood actress Greta Garbo.
Greta Lovisa Gustafsson was born in Stockholm, Sweden on the 18th of September 1905. Tragically her early family life was forever changed when her father died when she was only 14, leaving the family impoverished. This tragedy
forced the young Greta to leave school and seek employment. Her first job was in a department store, which would later utilise this teenage beauty as a model in newspaper advertisements. At this point she had no film aspirations however she was encouraged to appear in a short advertising film for the store and it was this ‘short’ which set her on a path which would ultimately lead her to Hollywood.
Garbo was known for her powerful screen presence and starred in many of the old movie greats such as Anna Karenina (1927) and Mata Hari (1931) and she was voted the 8th greatest ever movie star of all time by premier magazine.
Garbo never married having once jilted one lover at the altar. She was known for her powerful personality and could be both outspoken and enigmatic. It seems that Garbo has continued to enthral, inspire and captivate generations since she
first rose to popularity and became a Hollywood icon, she is even mentioned in a song by The Killers!!! (The ballad of Michael Valentine)
She was famously miss quoted as having said“I want to be alone” The actress herself
had this to say about the miss quote
"I never said, "I want to be alone”. I only said, "I want to be left alone". There is a whole world of difference
She also said of herself “I don't want to be a silly temptress. I cannot see any sense in getting dressed up and doing nothing but tempting men in pictures”
She died in 1990 aged 84.
