1930s and 40s Hollywood is often thought of as the Golden Age of film stars and glamour. (It’s hard to argue with this opinion when you consider stars like Rita Hayworth, Betty Garble, Clark Gable, and Cary Grant.) It was an era elegant outfits and sophisticated parties filled with champagne and big band music.
However, it is hard to fully capture the fabulous fashion styles of the Golden Age in our modern daily life. A good way of bringing a little classic glamour to your daily fashion choices is to select an element from your favorite Hollywood icon and make it your own.
For instance, if you are taking your cue from Betty Garble and aiming for a sexy image, you could choose a necklace and earring combination that draws attention to your face. Diamond earrings paired with a diamond solitaire pendant can dress up a casual outfit or serve as the finishing touch of your chic little black dress.
If you are interested in a more sultry fashion look, you could turn instead to Rita Hayworth. A curvaceous bombshell, Hayworth always brought a scintillating appeal that left audiences in awe. In order to emulate such a powerful presence, a burgeoning fashionista should shy away from demure pieces and instead opt for something just as sexy as the actress. Ornate, long emerald pendants with dangling emerald earrings to match would be an option that invokes classic Hollywood glamour and sex appeal. Matching colored gemstone suites are the way to go in order to capture the Rita Hayworth allure.
Or, you may be interested in something sophisticated and casual enough to wear for any and every occasion. The style icon to look to in this scenario is Audrey Hepburn. From Roman Holiday to Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Hepburn never looks like she is trying too hard. In order to replicate Audrey Hepburn’s savvy jewelry choices, there are a few rules to remember. First, pair lavish jewelry with simple clothing choices; and second, pull your hair back to properly display the jewelry you choose to don. A good choice in these situations is to stick with jewelry options that have proven to be winners: diamonds and pearls.
Whichever Hollywood legend you choose to emulate don’t forget the red lipstick, which is the winning touch that will take your look to the next level.
