"Joan Crawford wears a softer version of the 'Letty Lytton Dress'. The pom-pom frills of the sleeves have calmed down and now form a neat bolero shape."

Scanned from the book "Decades of Fashion".

She was great at posing for photos. She and George Hurrell created some of the loveliest images I've ever seen!

People like to insult Joan for her looks, but in the 1930s she was just about perfect.

I find in her later years Joan's look suffered from lack of taste (hideously unbecoming hair-dos, red hair + black eyebrows, etc). But she was always remarkably fit.
