Baby Peggy was born October 26, 1918 and was one of the major child stars of the silent film era. She was discovered by Century Studios at the age of 19 months. Between the years of 1920 and 1924, she starred in over 150 short comedy films for Century and Universal Studios.
Baby Peggy was just as famous as the adult counterparts of her day such as Rudolph Valentino and Pola Negri. Peggy was also named the mascot of the 1924 Democratic National Convention and was seen with FDR during the convention.
The reason I chose Baby Peggy as my BOTD is because of she was a fashion icon during one of my favorite time periods and she did it well at such a young age! She was often spotted in precisely fitted taliored suits, with a perfect triangular baby bob, babydoll dresses, Buster Brown get-ups, satin bloomers, mary jane shoes, stylish wool coats w/ matching hats, and jumpers with peter-pan collars. Basically what I wish my closet looked like.
Baby Peggy was such an it girl back in her day that she even had a clothing collection of children's wear and a very popular line of dolls, modeled after the real doll herself, Baby Peggy <3
And below is the only video I could find of Baby Peggy's work. The video is extraordinarily special because it features Baby Peggy then and now <3
