Jane Russell: curvy girl in halterneck dresses designed by Travilla

You don’t believe that halterneck is one of the most femine cuts? Watch The Revolt of Mamie Stover (1956): Jane Russel’ dresses created by legendary costume designer Billy Travilla make sexy actress even more sexier.

Turquoise (or sea-green) halterneck dress is a pure chic.

Lana Del Rey thinks the same (in my opinion hair extensions spoilt Lana’s look).

Comparison of two stars is showing that modern celebrities (Lana is just an example) possess much less charm and glow than old school divas (IMHO again).

Jane dazzels in white dress as well.

If miss Russell inspires you, check Pedro del Hierro‘ coral multiway dress: it allows you to create different looks wearing the same piece.

Budget brand Peacocks has similar Envy Light Green Multiway Maxi Dress.

If you don’t want to bother yourself doing draping, have a look at Pronovias‘ black Atos Style 31, Monique LhuillierFloral Halterneck Jumpsuit for special ocasions and H&M‘ pink Halterneck Dress (that bow must be cut and burnt) for daily life.

By the way, in The Revolt of Mamie Stover Jane wear halterneck swimsuit too.

That what I call healthy curvy girl: thin extra layer of fat spreads evenly on all parts of the body.

My favourites are silver with coins and golden with sun pendant. By the way, these accessories will be perfect partners for monochrome clothes.

Pretty Little Things Black Ring Detail Waist Belt will be good addition to a small white dress. You can detach the hoop and replace it with Brass Floral Dragonfly Pendant with Patina or Gardanne Beads Golden Autumn Small Oak Leaf Pendant from artbeads.com for more sophisticated look.
