1930s Fashion – Joan Blondell’s Wedding Trousseau – 1936

A Sneak peek at a Hollywood stars wardrobe –

1930’s Fashion Report for Glamourdaze.com.


For the recent marriage to actor Dick Powell, the delectable Joan Blondell ordered a most elaborate trousseau. The outstanding evening gown you see here, is of dusty green pebbly silk with an extreme halter neck line. Silver spangles outline the décolletage they are scattered in gleaming clusters on the flared skirt and the short bolero. With the gown Joan wears green crepe sandals.


Over a high-necked, mustard crepe dress Joan wears a coat of black wool, collarless, and snugly fitted at the waist. Flared skirt banded in cross fox. Boxed crowned black hat with quill.

Joan also selected an excellent afternoon dress of lustreless black crepe. The rich black of the velvet V at the neck holds the fullness of the bodice in place. The skirt, fitted at the waist and flaring at the hem, is belted by another velvet V. A black hat with a bronze and blue ostrich plume, black suede pumps, gloves and bag, a a gorgeous silver fox, complete the striking costume !

That’s all !
