I stumbled across this photo of Cheryl Cole in a golden gown on the X-Factor. It reminded me of some photos of vintage starlets in metallic gowns I have set aside over the years. Amongst the beauties here we have Ginger Rogers, Jean Harlow, Baba Beaton, Rita Hayworth, Eleanor Powell, Nancy Coleman, Veronica Lake, Myrna Loy, Carol Hughes and Delores Del Rio. Wow, I need something like this…

Unfortunately, metallic lame fabric like those vintage gowns are made from is hard to find these days. Lame today is usually polyester. Ick. Guess you’ll just have to find an original gown! 🙂
I absolutely adore your blog!
