1950’s Retro Rhinestone Necklace

Ahhhhh, Hollywood Glamour from the 1940’s and 1950’s.  Post World War II Era’s time of simplicity.  The Era of Hollywood musicals galore!  When I was growing up, my Mom and I would watch Debbie Reynolds and Sandra Dee movies.  I love this decade of great movies; such as Singing In The Rain, Gentleman Prefer Blondes, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, To Catch a Thief, etc.

 

Glamour is external and deliberate.  Hollywood Movie Stars were made to appear elegant.  Remember Audry Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s?  It was a beautiful combination of Glamour  and Romance.  The jewelry, sunglasses and the best known little black dress, all were designed to enhance Audrey’s character (Holly Golightly) as a Fashion icon and placed Audry Hepburn  in the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.
