The weather in my country it's throwing one last fit before spring is finally here, so due to extreme weather reports we are facing this weekend, I am planning to stay in and watch some oldies together with my significant other.
My choices for this weekend are:
Now, voyager (1942)
This one is probably one of the best make-over films of all time. In a few words the film tells us the transformation of Charlotte Vale, played by Bette Davis, from an introverted, awkward right on the edge of a breakdown girl to a true beautiful, full of life woman, able let herself feel love.
The mastermind behind Now, Voyager drama is the costume designer Orry-Kelly. The items to look for are the beautiful cape, exquisite hats, sparkling dresses, the little black dress, and white gloves.
You can understand her transformation through her entire wardrobe, when still in doubt of her beauty, Charlotte wears big hats to cover her face, when invited to dinner she covers herself with a cape, to hide her insecurities, but when she decides to become her own self you can see her wearing white beaded dresses, a daring v-neck, and the most amazing ruffles.
