1940’s Fashion – Vintage evening dress show
” You look so desirable in your new dress !” Yes, it was all about impressing the men those days! Funny how all the men were called Charlie. Still, this film displays some lovely evening dress examples of the 1940’s.
We see a waltz time skirt with black lace inserts. ” Look at the spunky shoulders ! Jane has a new dress too, her skirt is made of layers and layers of pink and grey net ! The waistline is longer for evening too. All very pretty and gay.No skimping on fabrics this season. Gloria wears a stunning Carmen Miranda number, with bare midrif and bright sashes.” Also featured are a dress of red and white Candy stripes, another with a long flowing cape.” Martha wears a gaudy print dresses, topped by a yellow jacket, doesnt it fit like a dream, and just look at the hood !
You’re all prepared for a romantic stroll down the beach.This is certainly a gala evening !”
And Groucho Marx might have added ” Well a gal an evening is all I can handle, will you marry me ? did your husband leave you any money ? Answer the second question first !”
