White Christmas, 50’s Glamour

Posted on December 25, 2010


Yesterday, I was watching the 1954 classic, “White Christmas,” starring Bing Crosby.  I loved this movie as a kid because of the singing/dancing sisters, played by Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen; I loved Vera-Ellen’s dancing!!  I also love it today from another perspective – their costumes and the glamourous evening gowns they wore.  It was great seeing how 1950’s style is in today – mermaid gowns, high waisted skirts, huge bows, cinched belts, fur shawls, ruby red lips, and for men, mismatched socks (from your suit).  How awesome is it that they lived in a time where things weren’t mass produced and everyday clothing was made with such great detail and the most luxurious fabrics?  Merry Christmas everyone!!
