Well, Vanity Fair has once again peaked my intellectual curiosities. The March issue includes two fantastic articles about old Hollywood and old Hollywood style, specifically Hollywood regency style. If you aren’t a regular VF reader, I suggest checking out both articles on their Web site — I’ll link them below. If you’re like me and enjoy consuming history and facts, you’ll find yourself seeking out more information about both topics long after you’ve finished reading.
I won’t give too much away about the article “Glamour Begins at Home” or the legendary Hollywood architect/designer because I think it’s worth checking out. But hopefully the pictures below, highlighting Woolf’s iconic style, will heighten your curiousity.
For more examples of John Woolf estates in LA, check out Dan in LA’s photostream, here.

And finally, if you’re interested in learning about growing up in Hollywood before the age of bodyguards and paparazzi, read “Children of Paradise” by Todd S. Purdum.
