Catherine Zeta Jones as Velma Kelly in “Chicago” (source)
Let me go on the books saying that I LOVE the 1920′s flapper look…oh, if I only I were around during that era…I would have worked some fringe like it was nobody’s business. While the drop-waist dresses probably wouldn’t have worked, I deffo would have sported the “Velma” hairdo. Sigh…it’s times like these I wish that I had CZJ’s creamy complexion.
While the “Velma” is also making a re-revival on the stage via Kelly Osbourne:

another unexpected star has sported this coif recently as well.
Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise (source)
As People magazine put it, Katie stole the show from Tom as he accepted the 2007 Bambi Award (who knew that such a thing existed?) with her new do. I have to say, it’s uber cute and sophisticated and I LOVE it. Paired with the trademark smoky eyes and dark lips, this look is so Cabaret/Chicago/Flapper fantastique!
You can score a super sleek look like this for the holidays…a little elf told me that Couture in the City may be giving away some more goodies in the near future to help you achieve the “Velma” at home. Keep posted for more info!
