Singin' in the Rain is my favorite movie in the world! I could watch it over and over and it would never get old. If you haven't seen it already, go out and buy it! Right now! You will love it!
One of the reasons I love it so much is the clothes. All of the outfits in this movie are just amazing, for both girls and guys. I have fallen in love with Kathy's blue stripe dress, and who can resist Cosmo and Don's adorable sweaters?
I LOVE Cyd Charisse's gorgeous green dress!
The costumes were by Walter Plunkett (1902-1982). He also did the costumes for Gone With the Wind and An American in Paris (pretty awesome!).
The style for women in the 1920s was all about having a boxy, boyish shape. They were breaking free from the age of corsets, tiny waists, and feminine features.
The 20s-40s really inspire me. I actually wore a black flapper dress to a dance last year :) It was awesome. I fell in love with a 20s-esque hat over the summer and I can't wait to pair it with some outfits!
I'm going to start posting Fashion in Film pieces every once in a while. I've already got several other movies in mind!
So, what do you think of Singin' in the Rain? What's your favorite movie?
