One of my favorite tv shows of all time, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire is over. As soon as I knew that Martin Scorsese would produce a gangster tv show set in the 1920s I knew I would love it. And I did! Through all 5 seasons I enjoyed the plot, the characters and, as you can imagine, the fashion featured in the series.
But on this blog post I want to focus my attention to the garments shown on the last season of the show, which took place in the early 1930s. Don’t worry If you haven’t seen the finale yet, I won’t post any spoilers! 😉
I really love Margaret’s change in sense of fashion. She is pictured above wearing a magnificent burgundy dress with a striped details. Very glamorous and sophisticated, and matches her 1930s waves.
Patricia Arquette, who plays Sally in the series, also rocks the 1930s look by adding berets and hair accessories to her looks.
In men’s fashion, the style hasn’t changed as much as in women, but it is clear that now gangsters wear those iconic italian suits featured in dozens of films about mobsters, such as The Godfather.
I hope you all have a great week, the last of 2014! xx
It’s Friday again, and here’s my favorite gal of the week: the stunning Louise Brooks. She was a popular silent film star in the 1920s and became, along with Clara Bow, a sex and style icon. Her bobbed haircut soon became a hit and young women would go to the hairdresser and ask for the bob cut, popularized by Brooks.
If you haven’t seen any of her movies, I’d recommend you to check out Pandora’s Box and Diary of a lost girl, probably her biggest hits.
In the 1930s she declared bankruptcy and quit acting. Although her career on the big screen was short, she became very popular during her active years.
OMG, seeing pics of her makes me want to cut my hair again and turn it into a bob, it looks amazingly gorgeous!
Have a great weekend guys and dolls!
One of the most iconic decades in the 20th century were the 1920s, also known as The Roaring Twenties. During those years, women started wearing shorter skirts and dresses, and swimwear followed the trend too. Police officers had to ensure, back in the day, that young girls – who would be called flappers – wore decent swimwear to the beach or public spots.
The daring ones would often get arrested if their suits were too short, and even police officers would measure the length of their clothing to ensure they were “prude” and “not sinful”.
The 1920s were very conservative, but soon a group of young women started breaking the rules of fashion and social trends by wearing provocative garments and being themselves.
– I really hope you are all enjoying the holidays, and excuse the lack of activity on here, I have been a bit busy lately.
