Vintage Portfolio: Veronica Lake

Brigitte Bardot was the queen of Sixties style, Marilyn Monroe was the ultimate Fifties pin-up and Veronica Lake? She will always remembered for having the best hair in Hollywood. Ever.


The actress, best known for her roles in This Gun For Hire and Gulliver's Travels, rose to fame in the early Forties, following a stint at acting school in Beverly Hills. She changed her name from Constance Keane to Veronica Lake and the rest was history.

Lake died aged 50 in 1973, but her signature peek-a-boo hair is still seen on the red carpet today. See more of Veronica, and her perfect blonde curls, in her style portfolio below:
