Is that dress supposed to be medeival?Whats the film please Vickie?
It’s high society fashion for a film released in 1939, based on a play written by Claire Boothe Luce, with an all female cast, directed by George Cukor, called “The Women” — you MUST see it!
Thanks Vickie,I thought I would be wrong as other details did not look right,even by men in tights standards for historical dramas.However a similiar form of head gear was worn by woman during parts of the Middle Ages.
Heh! The Women! Yep, my first reaction to that particular image was similar to Edward’s: “WHAT is she WEARING?!” The thing is it’s kind of Fabulous! 🙂
PS Whither the rubber duckie?!
Hi George.It is rather surprising I think.I just did a search for ladies head gear in The Middle Ages.Of course looking for it i could not find it.
The wardrobe in that movie is sensational!
One of the finest wardrobes in a film…EVER. I just might need to paint my nails red red red today in tribute…
I think you should! Very soothing, a manicure…
love this one 😉
Satin pillow behind the head, bubbles up to the nose, what’s not to love 😉 ?
That’s right! exactly!
Quite apart from receiving guests in the bathroom, what on earth is the lady on the telephone wearing!?!
Dame Kylie Minogue eat your heart out…
The Perfumed Dandy
The costumes were designed by the fabulous Adrian, if you haven’t seen the movie — it is a treat, on so many levels — even the wardrobe is witty.
this is so great ) beth
I’m just glad that in my haze I figured out how to loop a GIF.
Is it a bath or a fish tank/mermaid tank? Perhaps I would receive guests in the bathroom if my bath tub looked like that. And if my guests looked like that one. The Women (play) was performed here earlier in the year http://www.theatreview.org.nz/reviews/review.php?id=5754.
It is a tank! Two questions: how do keep it sparkly clean, and where the hell does that phone plug in??? I’ve never seen the play, but I’d love to.
Check out the classic movie “Laura” for another work/entertaining scene.
