1937 Fashions: So close and yet so wrong.

The Newcastle Sun (NSW), 11th March 1937 page 3.

Patricia Ellis (Warner Bros) looks stunned to be wearing this “cleaning lady in a velvet gown” mistake.

Another case of ‘gilding the lily’. A perfectly glamorous gown ruined by trying too hard.

If you have too wear “a sumptuous fur”, like Glenda Farrell, perhaps don’t leave all the bits of legs and tails dangling down.
