I'm so glad many of you enjoyed my spotlight on Barbara Stanwyck for November and also two of her films; Baby Face and Ball of Fire.
I really enjoy doing my "Dress Like" series. Doing this series allows me to to delve into the fashion part of my brain which has been a blast! Now, I have seen the iconic dress that Sugarpuss wears in the film in both red and gold-the film I saw was in black and white. I believe it to be gold and have no clue why in other photos it is red. Hummmm??? Anyone know why?
Anyhoo-here are some inspirational gold dresses that are just as bedazzling as the one Stanwyck wore. Okay, so no dress can be compared with what she wore because lets be honest-it was made perfectly to fit her slim body. To me this dress is a piece of art!
And of course the incredibly talented Edith Head is behind this masterpiece! There is just no other like it. While searching for some gold sequined sexy dresses that come close to resembling this one-well, let's just say today's definition of sexy is very different. Stanwyck is sexy but has all her essentials properly covered. Today, all the essentials are put on display for all the world to stare it! LOL
So hear is what I found; both vintage and modern dresses. Hope you like them!
So what do you think? I know many of them don't even come close but I love all the glitter and bling on these pieces. Still sexy, covering all the essentials, and yet dazzling!
Btw, Happy December!!!
