Old Movie Characters

Hedonistic Pleasureseeker, world's biggest flirt (Woo-hoo, Girl!) and my mentor, has a post up about her vintage full slip a la Liz Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

It got me thinking about my own taste in vintage slips and movie characters. Liz is not nearly "dirty" enough for me. I prefer a much grittier template.

W
hen I think vintage full slips I think Kim Hunter as Stella Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire, an all-time favorite.

Anna Magnani in The Rose Tattoo is another favorite though you could stuff Burt Lancaster in a barrel for all I care. Magnani was magnificent. Tell me, could anyone ever wear a black lace full slip and robe like that woman? Though the robe looks so much lovelier off the shoulder in later scenes. I wish I could find one!


Thanks so much for providing me with yet another way to waste my sleep time on the night before I return to work, HIPS. Hope I return the favor some day. See you Thursday.

Now, if I can only figure out which Streetcar characted I am...
