For a long time Jayne Mansfield was for me an epitome of vulgarity but then Kardashian family came in the limelight I saw The Girl Can’t Help It. First I liked her beautiful cosumes created by Charles Le Maire and after I read more about Jayne and change my opinion of her. Miss Mansfield was very intelegent and talented: she spoke Spanish and German, played violin and piano.
I think one of the main reasons Jayne didn’t get recognition she deserves is that she didn’t meet her Pygmalion director or producer who would take a proper care of her career, like Carlo Ponti did for Sophia Loren. That’s why in her filmogrphy very few high-profile movies and The Girl Can’t Help It is definitely on top of this short list.
Jayne Mansfield wardrobe in this movie is an excellent inspiration for those girls with enviable hourglass figures.
The decoration on Jayne’s hips makes her moves even more sexy.
Jayne holds 2 bottles of milk close to her famous assets – without a doubt directer and screen writer Frank Tashlin had a perfect sense of humour.
Jessica Rabbit borrowed her red dress from Jayne wardrobe (and peecaboo hair style from Veronica Lake).
Yellow outfit transforms into a swimsuit,
all you need to do is to take off a skirt.
Blouse + pants + wide sash = perfect cocktail outfit.
