Veronica Lake as Joyce Harwood in The Blue Dahlia, 1946

RUNWAY REVIVAL: Gucci, Valentino, J. Mendel, Tuleh

THE CLOSE-UP: Lake's long, billowy waves frame dark, sultry eyes and intense garnet lips.

BACKSTAGE BUZZ: "Female icons of the '40s were strong and independent yet always flawless," says P&G Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath, who channeled the decade behind the scenes at Gucci and Valentino.

YOUR TAKE: Modernize the postwar waves with simplified makeup — skip the eyeliner and go for the drama of false eyelashes, with a slick of ruby gloss over deep-red lip liner.
