Whenever I think of true style I think of old Hollywood films and a time when women were beautiful, elegant and seductive without showing 80% of their skin.
My favourite lady of the 30s and 40s is Ginger Rogers, best known for her dancing partnership with Fred Astaire in movies such as Swing Time, Top Hat and Shall we Dance. A lot of people consider her to be Astaire's finest dance partner, complimenting him with her light feet and more importantly her talent as both a comedic and a dramatic actress.
According to Astaire, when they were first teamed together in Flying Down to Rio, "Ginger had never danced with a partner before. She faked it an awful lot. She couldn't tap and she couldn't do this and that... but Ginger had style and talent and improved as she went along. She got so that after a while everyone else who danced with me looked wrong."
After ten films together with Astaire she expanded her range, earning a Best Actress Oscar for her dramatic performance in Kitty Foyle.
When it comes to her style she was glamorous and fun on-set and more of a tomboy off the set. She loved playing tennis and even got an ATP ranking and was also an accomplished artist and excelled at both painting and sculpting.
Are there actresses from old Hollywood that you look to for style inspiration?
