Gina Lolobriga is smoking hot in white gowns and big jewellery in Solomon and Sheba (1959).
If you want to channel your inner Queen and don’t count your money, put on Monique Lhulillier‘ Cowl Neack Sheath Gown and decorate yourself with Azza Fahmy‘ The Bow Earring and Drop Shaped Necklace.
You can feel yourself like a sultry movie star without spending a fortune.
Go for Genny‘ Sleevles Blue Lame Pencil Dress and Ben-Amun‘ Casablanca Coin Statement Earrings and Classic Gold Spiral Bangle.
P.S. Gina’s draped sleeping gown is something!
Modern designers have to take a lesson “how to make a naked dress” from Ralph Jester, who created costumes for miss Lollobrigida.
I think bucket bag makes Cleo Moore’ look in The Other Woman (1954) even more elegant.
That old bag can be easily replaced with modern Repetto‘s grey Reverence Bag Small Size (removeable and reversible handles, detachable strap allow you to play with your looks).
DeMellier‘ pink The Gotherburg and Gianni Chiarini‘ red Jackie bucket bags will be a stylish partners for Trashy Diva‘ vintage-inspired Courtney Coat Dress.
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 Lhuillier‘ Floral 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.
Jane looks amazing in floral dress with small «wings» on the back too.
Think your dark little dress looks boring?
Use tip from Judith Anderson’ character from a classic noir movie Laura (1944) and decorate it with not 1 but 3 brooches.
By the way, you can find a lot of beautiful vintage pieces on Susan Caplan website.
I think 2 silver plated 1960s Vintage Trifari Brushed Leaf Brooches, gold plated 1960s Vintage Monet Swirl Brooch and Mango‘s Belt Cotton Dress will look very stylish together.
They say Wild West accessories look best with denim, but I think American West‘s Grand Prairie Multi-Compartmet Crossbody Flap Bag and leather Ladies’ Wide Cuff Bracelet will look cute too with Paule Ka‘s classic ¾ sleeve Dress In Tweed Gaze and Pumps In Smooth Perforated Leather.
Jil Jil Stuart‘s Chrissy in classy dress with illusion of deep decolette will look even more attractive if you decorate it with Les Georgettes‘ Manchette Solair bracelet, Bague Ibiza ring and jewellery bag Sacbijou Le Mini Rouille which you can use as a clutch and Pierre Hardy‘s Dani Slingback shoes.
Simple Margaret Howell‘s School Dress (52% linnen, 48% cotton) will look anything but boring with bright Fluevog’s Vow shoes and Paula Cademartori‘s Dun Dun Mexicala bag.
Modern fashionistas almost forgot about pearls and that’s their big mistake – these gems (real and imitation) reflect the light and bring luminous glow to your skin.
That’s why genius artist Jan Vermeer decorated his most famous model with a pearl earring.
True diva Audrey Hepburn shines in Bvlguri’s necklaces in Bloodline (to be honest, this movie movie is awful and even miss Hepburn’s charm and her stylish wardrobe and posh jewellery can’t save it).
Pearls on Debora Kerr’s draw attention to her beautiful shoulders and dress in Bonjour tristesse (1958) and heroine of Janet Leigh uses them to make her simple sweater more elegant in Touch of Evil (1958).
So as you can see pearl necklces have a wonderful quality – you can wear them with all kinds of clothing – black-tie, office and casual.
Any of these 4 pretty pieces can add a hint of feminine chic to your look (clockwise): Ben-Amun‘s Long Pearl Strand Neclace Chezh Glass Pearls and Swarowsky crystals, Crystal Leaf Marquise Cut Station Pearl Necklace, Mastoloni‘s Multicolor Keshi Freshwater Pearl Necklace and Tasaki‘s Sliced Necklace.
Not sure that pearls and jeans suit each other?
Here are Nectar De Stagni’s Shark Teeth & Cultured Fresh Water Pearl Necklace, Cheap Monday‘s Tight Pure Blue Jeans, Fonnesbech‘s Ella Shirt White and Tieks‘ Biscotti Patent ballerinas for an inspiration.
And without any doubt pearls necklace is a perfect partner for a coctail or evening dress.
If you want to look sexy and classy at the same time decorate Ali & Jay‘s grey Wan’t Be Silensed Sheath or Phase Eight‘s red Astrid Maxi Dress with necklaces from Tasaki‘s Sliced collection.
It’s hard to believe but some people think that label “Made in China” on clothes is a sign of bad quality. I’d like to advise those
snobs sceptical minds to visit site of Shanghai Tang.
Pink Silk Cotton Stone Button Short Sleeve Qipao Top, black 3/4 Sleeve Silk Blouse, Quilted Jacquard Shorts and Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box Clutch are real pleasure for fashionista’s eye.
Shanghai Tang‘s knitwear is a pure luxury. I like Cashmere Silk Long Sleeve Lined Royal Leaf Zip Cardigan (silk lining make this piese even more posh) and Cashmere-Silk Reversible Jade Cardigan.
And as dress obsessed person I have no other choice but to fall in love with Wool Contrast Strap Short Sleeve Qipao Dress (vertical straps make our bodies more slimmer).
It will look even more cute with Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box Clutch, Kenneth Jay Lane‘s White And Red Enamel Branch Ring, Crystal And Coral Branch Eurowire Earring and Magrit‘s Sofie.
LBD is a perfect choice, doesn’t matter how many pounds you have. French brand Alme creates clothing for big girls working meticulously with details and wins, of course.
Robe Emma with cute sleeves is a very stylish and timeless piece indeed.
You can find on side Alme‘s many stylish things besides dresses.
Silk khaki Top Olivia + white pants Pantalon Malibu = comfortable summer outfit.
