While sipping on a little wine and flipping through the channels Friday night, I came across a movie (and play) I had heard of before but had never seen. Thoroughly Modern Millie filmed in 1967 tells the story of Millie Dillmount, a naive young woman who finds herself in the midst of a series of madcap adventures when she sets her sights on marrying her wealthy boss in the 1920s (wiki).
Not only do I LOVE this awesomely quirky movie but the costumes were fabulous!!
Take a look..
I even love the fashion of the sweet Miss Dorothy Brown played by Mary Tyler Moore, who seeks a life on the stage as an actress. She likes to wear light pastels and soft materials like chiffon and lace ( you know I love the ever feminine chiffon and lace).
Even the men looked stunning with their tailored suits and stunning pipes!!
I would love to see some details of the the 1920s flapper fashion return!!
Watch the youtube clip...it's very interesting to see Millie's fashion transformation from the opening of the film.
