Last year I mentioned that I have a thing for the designs of Hollywood designer Helen Rose. That love affair began when I rented the 1957 movie, Designing Woman.
The photos below are about six years old and aren’t very large. But, you can get a sense of her femine yet professional style. In the film Lauren Bacall plays a fashion designer who marries a sports writer.
Note the definition of the waist and the slimline of the skirt. Don’t even get me started on the PERFECT angle of her cute little hat. Mmmm. The fabric covered buttons and the white gloves too! And the black hat on her imagined love rival is fantastic. Sigh. I love it. You know, if Mad Men is filled with images like this, I get why everyone raves about it.
This isn’t even my favorite dress! I’ll show you another one soon.
