Hello again you Mavens of Mid-Century! Since Halloween is upon us, I thought I would dedicate this post to famously fashionable ghouls! Even the dead (or undead) can be smashing! Perhaps it’s not too late for a change of costume???
Let us scrutinize…
First up is the diabolically divine Vampira, 1950’s horror hostess extraordinaire.
Note the deep V of her gown and incredibly corseted waist – mercy!
Vampira’s look, while overly dramatic for everyday, can certainly be toned down for day-wear. Think brick-colored lipstick and black form-fitting sheath dress with 3/4 sleeves and you’ve got it!
Isn’t she darling?
Here is a full-length shot of her famous “octopus dress.” Notice any resemblance to Vampira’s?
I wish you all a devastatingly chic Halloween!
