  1. I couldn't find a picture of the hat that you described, but here are some hats that may be good substitutes.
  2. Oh, this is very sad news. Robert Osborne was such a wonderful TCM host - truly the epitome of class. His vast knowledge of films never ceased to amaze me. Rest in peace, Robert. DownGoesFrazier and TomJH, I agree that TCM should show some of Robert's favorite films. I found an article that Robert wrote where he discussed several of his favorites. Click on the link below. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/04/12/robert-osborne-s-secret-favorite-movies.html Edit - Here's a list of the films that Robert mentioned in the article: The Big Clock, Dodsworth
  3. Actually, they put you in a dungeon beneath Bloomingdale's. They make you wear platinum handcuffs and they give you your choice of striped prison outfits.
  4. In case you missed it, LawrenceA identified the actress for you. It's Jennifer Connelly. (Thanks, LawrenceA!) Misswonderly3, I totally agree with your comments about fair-skinned actresses wearing white or flesh-colored outfits. I wish that you could send that message to every fair-skinned woman in Hollywood (well, not just Hollywood......the WORLD). That was one of the main things that bothered me about this year's Oscar fashions. Emma Stone's dress is an excellent example. The dress is very pretty (although I'm not 100% sold on the fringed bottom), but like you said, it doesn't loo
  5. Yes, the hats in that picture do look silly. I've never liked those pointed/cone-shaped hats, either. I remember seeing a few of those hats in the THE WOMEN. Florence Nash Norma Shearer and Ruth Hussey Norma Shearer Hedda Hopper (The cone shape on the hat isn't as pronounced as the others, but I just had to include the Queen of Crazy Hats.) I did a little research on these hats and I found out that they seem to have been popularized by a designer named Elsa Schiaparelli. If you'd like to read more about this designer an
  6. Now that I know how to post videos, I want to share this clip. It's the song "Style" from the recently-shown film ROBIN AND THE 7 HOODS. I think that it's perfect for this thread!
  7. All right, now that the Oscars are over and done with, it's time to get back to films. Mary Duncan is in this photo from MORNING GLORY, but all I see is her poofy dress. I think that Mary might be able to fly with all those feathers.
  8. Sorry for taking a while to respond, Sepiatone. These last few days have been unexpectedly busy. Anyway, is this the Nicki Minaj dress that you were talking about? It's the only long, mostly-green dress that I could find.
  9. Yes, I know! Like I said, I disagree with the Fashion Police quite often. They'll probably come and arrest me one of these days. I agree that Charlize Theron is a gorgeous woman. Wouldn't it be something if she made burlap fashionable?
  10. Oh, Nicki Minaj....what a character she is! Is this the dress that you were referring to? It's funny that you should bring up the Fashion Police. I can't tell you how many times I've disagreed with their choices. That reminds me....I haven't discussed this year's Oscar fashions. I would love to discuss the dresses that I did like, but this isn't the thread for that. Here are my top 3 LEAST favorite 2017 Oscar dresses. Although I don't care for these dresses, I have to admit that they're not nearly as bad as some of the ones that I've seen in previous years. Raph
  11. I'm glad that you enjoyed the photos, kingrat. I'm curious to know which Audrey Hepburn dress you were referring to. She has worn several dresses that exposed her collarbone. Did she wear that dress in a movie? Do you remember what color it was? Did the dress have sleeves or was it strapless?
  12. That outfit was a memorable one! Cher is one of the few people who could pull that off. As LawrenceA noted, I posted that picture already, but I'll post it again.
  13. More unfortunate Oscar fashion choices from days gone by: Geena Davis Zoe Saldana (This was especially disappointing because she usually wears lovely dresses.) Vera Farmiga Uma Thurman Tilda Swinton Barbra Streisand
  14. Speedracer5 - I agree that some of the dresses in MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS were nice. I liked the dresses that the girls wore to the Christmas dance, especially Judy's. I'll even admit that Lucille Bremer's tan outfit wasn't that bad. The style is pretty, but I don't really like the color. I'm not fond of clothes that are beige, taupe, light tan and other similar colors (unless they are sparkly). I would wear beige pants, but I wouldn't wear that color in anything else. It's just a little quirk of mine. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on Judy's blue-and-white striped dress and I
  15. Well, Hollywood certainly gave us the ultimate twist ending last night, didn't it? I know that this subject is being discussed on other threads, so I'll just focus on fashion right now. Speedracer5 - I totally agree with your comments about Gwyneth Paltrow's Oscar dresses. Gwyneth admitted in an interview that she regretted wearing that black dress. I don't know if she regretted wearing the pink dress, though. That pink dress made me think of the pink tutu that Lara Flynn Boyle wore to the Golden Globes several years ago. Who could forget this little number? What con
  16. Sadly, that can probably be said for many others, especially these days. Some people just don't give a rip how they look. I have to admit that I kind of admire that trait in people....sometimes. You quoted my post before I edited it. I made a correction to Miss Kirkland's name. It's Sally, not Sarah. I also chose a different picture of Faye Dunaway.
  17. LornaHansonForbes, I'm not sure which Gwyneth Paltrow dress you were referring to. Was it that black dress with the sheer top? Here's that infamous swan dress that you mentioned. I wanted to post a picture of it in case anyone was unfamiliar with it. Bjork wore the original and Ellen DeGeneres wore a knock-off as a joke. Who wore it best? Demi Moore in that thing (I refuse to call it a dress.) Whoopi Goldberg, what were you thinking?? I guess Faye Dunaway wanted an updated twist on the "Morticia" look. (Bad idea, Faye.)
  18. Thank you, Miss Forbes. I like yours, too. THE DAMNED DON'T CRY is a great film. The dress in that photo is dreadful. I can't say that it beats out the swan dress, though. Thanks for bringing up the subject of Oscar dresses. I'll go look for some of the best....I mean, the worst fashions.
  19. Great suggestions, Sepiatone. If you can't post photos, that's OK. As long as we have a description of the outfit and the movie it's from, one of us can find it. Since I'm online now, I'll find some pictures from the movies that you mentioned. I liked the "Under the Bamboo Tree" number, but I did NOT like the little number that Judy Garland was wearing. Judy wasn't the only one to make a fashion faux pas at that party. I'm not wild about these outfits, either. Sepiatone, it's a good thing that you posted the video of the "Anatole of
  20. JamesStewartFan95 and Dargo, thanks for those examples from SINGIN' IN THE RAIN. Dargo, there were quite a few outlandish outfits in that video, but these were the two that stood out. It's hard to believe that women actually wanted to dress like that. I just thought about a few more outfits from SINGIN' IN THE RAIN.
  21. Repeat offender Irene Dunne in THE AWFUL TRUTH
  22. Sepiatone - Thanks for the Youtube video. That was really funny. The real Joan Crawford probably would have been jealous seeing another woman with such large shoulder pads. Dargo - Your appreciation of Sophia Loren's soaking wet dress doesn't mean that you have a bad taste in fashion, but it does seem to indicate that you are a straight male.
  23. I vote for Vivien Leigh. Carol, the first rule of proper curtain wearing is : TAKE IT OFF THE CURTAIN ROD!!
