Thoroughly Modern ...Fabulous!!!


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!!

PS
Watch the youtube clip...it's very interesting to see Millie's fashion transformation from the opening of the film.
