Adam & Apples



I mentioned The Lady Eve earlier, and now I'm making good on that mention. Barbara Stanwyck wears some truly delightful things in this movie. The above poster makes the film look almost noir, but it's actually much more screwball rom-com:



That's more like it. Anyway, there are gorgeous photos of The Lady Eve's couture on Criterion (and some backstory on the costume design). I picked four favorites:

    1. That sounds awesome--I hope you post about it! I would say "hint, hint" but that wasn't even a hint, haha, rather an outright request.

  2. Is that a tea-length sheared beaver cape? ~goggles~ And it has it's own matching hat and muff? sure why not.

    I can't imagine a single place where I could wear something like this (nowadays) and not look utterly ridiculous.
