Veronica Lake was a silver screen staple during the 1940s, when the film noir genre was booming. But the star of Sullivan's Travels, This Gun for Hire, and The Glass Key was as famous for her signature peek-a-boo hairstyle--her gorgeous blond waves often fell in front of her right eye--as she was for her femme fatale movie roles. Today, the sultry siren is given credit for the glossy, wavy hairstyles we often see on red carpets--the style has been dubbed "Veronica Lake waves."
Like Veronica Lake, actress Blake Lively's long, blond hair is almost as famous as the star herself. She's adopted a seductive persona, showing up on red carpets in curve-hugging dresses or even short suits to show off her legs, that is every bit the modern-day femme fatale.
