My favorite outfit that Ginger wore in the film was the ostrich feather dress in the song, “Cheek to Cheek” because it was elegant looking and fit the musical part. Fred Astaire chose and provided his own clothes for his film wardrobes, which…

A Rose, perhaps?” he asked forlornly. His voice was smooth and intoxicating. “What about...” he stuffed the flowers back into the hat, then pulled out a dove, which hooted and ruffled its feathers. “A bird?” Birdie and Albert’s eyes locked for a moment, and he…

    costume designs. She also wanted to put a modern spin on all aspects of the show (costuming included). In order to dress Amanda in a way that would fit this vision, I made her clothes classy, elegant, and a tad revealing, albeit cheaply made. All of her outfits are the less expensive knockoffs of upper class clothes. I drew inspiration from old Hollywood dresses, and then found pictures of what appears to be cheaper made versions. In the play, it is depicted that she wore her faithless husbands…

    The first girl I ever kissed was the daughter of a woman who frequented my parent’s hat shop. I was thirteen years old and we had escaped into the alley beside the shop. Her mother was taking her time perusing the hats: hats with wide brims, big feathers, funny textures. My family was very successful; hats were an important commodity to the women of Vienna, even to those that typically upturned their noses at my family. The approaching war distanced itself further from me each time a woman…
