1930s Silhouettes

This week I am looking at the 1930s silhouette. It was such an glamorous era, the golden age of Hollywood. I am particularly inspired by the the actress Ginger Rogers, whose long, flowing dresses elongated and streamlined her figure, creating a lovely, elegant silhouette. To recreate a 1930's look, choose luxurious silks and satins cut on the bias to highlight your waist and lengthen your figure. Metallic details such as silver shoes or beading add a touch of glamour. A really nice touch is to have your hair set in Marcel waves, and for some real Hollywood glamour - scarlet lips!
