I'm a total sucker for old musicals - not just because I love singing and dancing around the house like an idiot, but because the truly great musicals were made during a time when movie stars were so amazingly glamourous that I just can't even stand it!

This is one of my favorites:

Can you even imagine standing between two of the most amazing singer/dancer/actors of all time? Not to mention they're both total dreamboats!!!

The lipstick! The hair! She even manages to pull off a dress with GIANT sunflowers plastered all over it and still look fabulous!

Where has all the glamour in Hollywood gone? (Lindsay Lohan please tell me you are taking notes...) Kathryn Grayson has the most perfect hair I've ever seen throughout the entirety of Anchors Aweigh, not to mention her over-the-top gorgeous outfits!

My attempt to re-create a bit of the glamour - on a budget :)


What movie-star style would (do) you like to borrow from?

I'm an old movie/musical fan as well - I can't get enough of how perfect they looked on and off screen - why can't we look like that all the time?
