"A Look Back" is a daily column that highlights a moment from fashion's fabulous past. Today's pick is of American actress Jean Arthur posing as Carmen in 1929. Arthur, who was born Gladys Greene, was Paramount Picture's top film star throughout the '20s and '30s. Remembered for starring in films like "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" and "You Can't Take It With You," Arthur was also known for her sense of style.
