Carole Lombard made looking fashionable seem so easy, even as photos of such style led to confusing conclusions. Take this photo above, snapped by Otto Dyar to help publicize "No Man Of Her Own," issued during the waning days of 1932. For instance, take the snipe that accompanied this photo:

This photo is from the George Smoots collection, and is listed in excellent condition. It's up for auction at eBay, with bids beginning at $39.99. The auction closes at 10:04 p.m. (Eastern) next Sunday.
