The other day I heard one of my favorite old songs " The way you look tonight" and I instantly thought of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. For this post I'm going to concentrate on Ginger and her awesome sense of style!
There was something just mesmerizing about the way she danced and the passion that both she and Astaire had on that dance floor....It was classy, it was romantic and it looked effortless...lighter than air.
She had a huge say in all the outfits that she wore in her movies. In fact Astaire was furious at her choice of the very famous feather dress. He told her that she shouldn't wear it because the feathers got in the way and he would constantly pick feathers off of his suit. She got her way. Sorry Fred, ya just can't tell a lady what to wear!
I Love love love this dress! The collar is darling and the dress flowed. Loved the shoes too!
This dress screams DIVA!
This dress was heavily beaded and even smacked Fred Astaire in the face while they were dancing
Love the bead work on this dress
The Feathered dress. If you watch the movie you can see feathers flying off and sticking to Fred Astaire's Tux
I've included a video I found. This was posted by Shufflehop. The song was sung by Olivia Newton John
In addition to the genius that was Fred and Ginger...look at her style...just beautiful.
Doesn't the video just make you rest your cheek on the palm of your hand and sigh? I think every girl would like to be dipped while dancing and kissed like that!
