We Imagined What 16 Modern Actresses Would Look Like in Old Hollywood

Apart from good plots and talented acting, one of the reasons why we love watching movies made decades ago is the opportunity to see what people (and life in general) looked like back then. People dressed differently, they had different hairstyles and makeup, and it’s interesting to compare the looks of modern actors to the looks of actors from black-and-white movies. A little while ago, we tried to imagine what Old Hollywood actresses would look like if they were alive today, and then we got excited to conduct this experiment the other way around.

We at Bright Side unleashed our creativity and placed 16 modern actresses into the era of Old Hollywood. Come with us on this exciting journey through time, and let’s see what our favorite stars would look like if they lived in the first half of the 20th century.
