last night i watched seven sinners (1940), a film starring
marlene dietrich & john wayne. and while the story line was
nothing spectacular- the costumes were!! my jaw continuously
dropped as dietrich's character bijou, pulled off one over the top,
feathered & be-jeweled piece after another.
here she is in the same dress as above, but with fresh flowers
to make the look a little different in a scene. genius!
the birdcage veil, the cuff bracelet, the parasol, the pointed manicure..
it's too good!
just look at those gloves! and that bling!!
the turban was one of my favorites, but hard to capture...
and the all lace number looked like something right
out of the latest dolce & gabbana ads.
the head pieces. the headpieces.
and then this rhinestone necklace + black shirt + sparkling skirt
combination had me thinking holiday thoughts in the midst of
this summer heat wave.
