Back when horror was still a chic genre, Alfred Hitchcock made films that were not only blood-chillingly frightening and brilliant but whose starlets screamed in style. From Kim Novak to Grace Kelly to Marlene Dietrich and Doris Day, Hitchcock’s films featured some of the most prominent and stylish actresses of the 1940’s to 60’s. While the heroines of his films were plagued by horrors such as murderous birds and neighbors with homicidal tendencies, they always faced them head on as strong, well dressed women. And while they were at it they also set trends and made style statements that effected modern fashion and the way we dress to this day.
Since we are so inspired by Hitchcock and his heroines we decided to do a photoshoot as an homage to the Hitchcock genius.
Vera was fragile and delicate but at the same time pale and creepy in her pearl adorned asymmetrical cut shirt and layered tulle skirt. She made the look feminine and dainty with her crème peep toes, monogrammed bag and pearl jewelry.
I emulated 50’s screen sirens in a voluminous layered polka dot dress worn with a waist belt, head scarf, huge sunglasses, pearl necklace, and a vintage blue silk minaudiere. I continued the monochrome prints look with my zebra print kitten heels.
Go retro and you’ll feel like you stepped out of an old Hollywood movie. Not in a scary way, but rather in the best, most fabulous way possible!
