I love Old Hollywood movies. The hair, the makeup, the accessories, the sets, and of course the costumes are so beautiful. I have assembled a list of my five favorites. Grab some popcorn, que these movies up, and get ready for some major wardrobe envy! Look no further for glamour inspiration.
5. High Society (1956)
Starring Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, and Frank Sinatra- if that doesn’t convince you it’s worth a watch, I don’t know what will. Grace Kelly had recently become engaged to Prince Rainier of Monaco, and she wears her own breathtaking 10.5 carat engagement ring in the movie (via IMDb). In this film, Ms. Kelly shows us what a swimsuit cover-up should look like, dances around with Frank Sinatra in a gorgeous evening gown, and wears one of the most beautiful wedding dresses I’ve ever seen! There is also a lot of great music (Louis Armstrong makes an appearance), so check it out!
4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
This is at the very end of the Old Hollywood years, but I had to include it. Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly wears many of the same dresses repeatedly in this movie, changing up the accessories to give herself a slightly different look with each wear. Talk about a style icon! Of course she wears the quintessential black shift dress, and she even makes wearing a sheet look effortlessly classy. A sheet! This movie also made me want to buy an adorable sleep mask and tassel earplugs (trust me on this).
