Style Tips for 20s/30s Hollywood Glamour
Old-school Hollywood Glam should be 3 words – “timeless”, “elegant” and “sexy”. With WWI just ending, the post-war sentiments of the era leaped into a state of euphoria, which brought popularity to drinking, partying and the general flapper style. Following such attitude, the American fashion entered into a modern stride of sensuality – ascending hemlines, descending necklines and other flirty designs. To return to these classic looks, let’s take a cue from several silver screen sirens like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and etc. With Covetella’s top tips and recommendations, you’re to be the belle of the ball at this year’s Electro Ball 2017.
- Classic Black
Follow the footsteps of legendary beauty – Audrey Hepburn – to recreate this sophisticated and feminine look of the golden age. Feel like a princess but dress like a queen in a sleek black gown paired with black opera gloves, chandelier earrings, and completed with strings of pearls. Even after decades, this good ol’ classic look will never go out of style.
- Slinky Satin
Jean Harlow epitomises old Hollywood fashion in her allusive satin gowns that draws a careful balance between class and sensuality. If you want a look that ensues subtle glamour, slinky satin will be the perfect fit to accentuate your classic silhouettes. Appear sultry in rich burgundy or red shades and you'll look like you just stepped out of a film noir movie!
- Razzle Dazzle
Original blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe, was the sex symbol of the 1930s. Just like Monroe, be the centre of attention at Electro Ball by wearing an evening gown completely embellished with shimmery beads and sparkly sequins. Throw in a high slit or a low v-neckline to ooze with sex appeal. Lets be real…if you’ve got it, flaunt it ;)
- Golden Goddess
Gloria Swanson, though known for her reclusive silent film role, is anything but timid when it comes to clothes. Dripping with glamour, you too can emulate Swanson’s million-dollar look by donning a gold/bronze dress with a bejeweled headband or other show-stopping jewelry. Let guests be bewitched by the golden luminosity of your dress and have one hell of a night!
- Get Burlesqued
Who can forget the jazz age beauty – Josephine Baker? With her signature kiss curl hair and elaborate feathered gowns, its no wonder superstars like Beyoncé and Rihanna emulate her fashion as well. If you’re the more dramatic sorts, go big or go home in a burlesque-inspired outfit that is elaborate from head to toe. Be it feathers or exaggerated ruffles, you’re sure to steal the limelight!
- Great Gatsby
1920s “It Girl”, Clara Bow, is one of the original queens of vintage. Back in the roaring twenties, Bow had been recognised for her wavy bob, deep-set eyes and cupid lips – qualities that pioneered the Gatsby appearance and style. This look can be easily achieved with the right outfit and accessories. Choose warm-toned dresses that are heavily embellished with sequins or beads. As for accessories, go for statement headpieces or even a feather boa for a fun touch!
