Zelda Fitzgerald is one of America's favorite tragic heroines. "Zelda: A Biography" by Nancy Milford really does a great job of explaining why. Zelda was charismatic and beautiful, full of her life. She and F. Scott Fitzgerald were the Jazz Age personified. Zelda was also mentally unbalanced, and she spent her whole life searching for her art and being in the shadow of her husband.
Her style is undeniable -- a true-blue flapper with plenty of money to spend. Apparently, photos don't do her beauty justice, but she still looks lovely and alive and fun, doesn't she? An American style icon, for sure.
