Cinematically CInched...at the Waist

Babs Stanwyck
The Lady Eve, 1941
Costumes by Edith Head
Babs Stanwyck was no great beauty, but gal had spunk, charisma and some serious acting chops, so she often ended up playing temptress or seductress. With her main gal pal, Edith Head behind her, Stany always looked the part. The Lady Eve was Stanwyck's coming out party as a style icon, what with her smart day suits and her (god who doesn't love a good) transformation into the Lady Eve Sidwich, complete with a stunning ostrich feather fan, no doubt to resucitate anyone she might have gagged on the way in.
