HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR





L'ALLURE DE HOLLYWOOD
I LOVE Hollywood films from the 30's and 40's. Something about the black and white scheme, the shadowy lighting and the extraordinary glamour. Of course, they would have us believe that at the time, all the women dined in ball gowns and the men in tails. Every night. At home.
Of course that's what movies are all about: fantasy and fiction. All right, we know that. And in the mean time I, for one, enjoy all the froufrou and tulle and ribbons and feathers. So what would these extremely beautiful and sophisticated godesses chose to wear from the equally dazzling evening gown collections of the top current designers? I paired some of the most bewitching stars of that era with some of our most prestigious designers.

Gene Tierney and Jean Paul Gauthier
Mystery

Joan Crawford and Chanel
Character

Lana Turner and Chanel
Confidence

Greta Garbo and Chanel
Tenderness

Grace Kelly with Dominique Sirop
Elegance


Ava Gardner and Stephane Rolland
Panache

Loretta Young and Elie Saab
Refinement

Ingrid Bergman and Elie Saab
Majesty

Rita Hayworth and Yves St. Laurent
Sensuality

Would I have made it as a Hollywood stylist or would I have been sent back to Wardrobe? 


au revoir.
