Figurinos do cinema clássico que eu usaria / Classic film outfits I’d wear


Em muitos filmes, temos um personagem silencioso, em contato constante com atores e atrizes, com destaque em diversas cenas e que pode dizer mais que mil palavras: o figurino. Há aqueles filmes, muitos deles da Era de Ouro de Hollywood, que nos impressionam pela beleza dos figurinos. Mas beleza não é suficiente para que uma pessoa como eu compre uma roupa: comodidade e estilo também contam.

In many movies, there is a silent character, constantly touching the actors and actresses, being a key piece in several scenes and worth more than a thousand words: the outfit. There are those films, many of them made during Hollywood’s Golden Age, that surprise us by how beautiful the outfits are. But beauty is not enough to make me buy clothes: they should also be comfortable and respect my style.
Por isso, são relativamente poucos os figurinos do cinema clássico que entraram na minha lista de desejos. Não apenas por seus preços exorbitantes, mas também porque não fazem meu estilo. Aqui está minha lista de figurinos do cinema que eu não pensaria duas vezes antes de vestir:

That’s why relatively few classic film outfits enter my wishlist. It’s not only because they’re probably very expensive, but because they don’t fit my personal style. Here is my list of film outfits I’d wear without thinking twice:

Qualquer coisa que Louise Brooks e Clara Bow usaram:
Não há dúvidas do porquê de essas moças serem ainda hoje consideradas ícones de estilo. Eu adoro quando elas usam vestidos e saias mais curtos, tanto em filmes – como Clara Bow em “Asas” (1927) – e no dia a dia – olhe para este lindo conjunto de marinheira!

Anything worn by Louise Brooks and Clara Bow:
No wonder these girls are still style icons. I love when they wear shorter dresses and skirts, both in movies – like Clara Bow in “Wings” (1927) and in daily life – look at that sailing suit!
Roupas de Greta Garbo em “Mulher Singular” (1929):
Estas roupas são andróginas – e também ótimas para praticar esportes. Eu não faço o estilo atleta, mas as roupas com certeza parecem confortáveis e práticas. Bônus: o responsável por elas foi o lendário designer Adrian!

Greta Garbo’s outfits from “The Single Standard” (1929):
These clothes are androgynous – and also great for sports. I’m not very athletic, but they certainly look comfy and practical. Bonus points: designed by Adrian!
Vestido de Paulette Goddard em “Tempos Modernos” (1936):
O cabelo de Paulette em “Tempos Modernos” está praticamente do comprimento do meu agora, mas isso não é minha coisa favorita sobre a personagem. Para mim, a melhor roupa que ela usa é este vestido brilhante no show do restaurante. Eu o usaria para ir até a padaria? Provavelmente não. Para uma festa? Aí sim.

Paulette Goddard’s dress from “Modern Times” (1936):
Paulette’s hair in “Modern Times” is the same length as mine right now, but this is not what I love the most about her gamine character. For me, the greatest outfit she wears is this flamboyant dress in the restaurant show. Would I wear it to go the bakery? Probably not. To a party? Oh yes.
Mini-smoking de Judy Garland em “Casa, comida e carinho” (1950): 
Olhe este terninho adorável. Eu amo usar shorts. Eu aprecio um bom blazer. Judy e eu temos quase a mesma altura. O figurino foi usado em uma cena deletada de “Desfile de Páscoa” (1948), e reutilizado para o número musical “Get Happy”, filmado muitos meses após o fim das gravações.

Judy Garland’s short suit from “Summer Stock” (1950):
Look at that lovely suit. I love shorts. I enjoy blazers. Judy and I are about the same height. The outfit was previously used in a deleted scene from “Easter Parade” (1948), and re-used for the musical number “Get Happy”, shot many months after production wrapped.
Traje de banho em “Cantando na Chuva” (1952):
No número “Beautiful Girl” há um desfile de modas. Algumas roupas são exageradas, mas outras são realmente bonitas – como o vestido de casamento, a roupa de luto, os vestidos vermelho e roxo e, em especial, o traje de banho.

Swimming suit from “Singin’ in the Rain” (1952):
In the “Beautiful Girl” number there is a fashion show. Some of the clothes are exaggerated, but some are truly nice – like the wedding gown, the widow gown, the red dress, the purple dress and, in special, the swimming suit.
Short e blusa de Betty Grable em “Como agarrar um milionário” (1953):
Mais um desfile de moda, mais uma roupa maravilhosa: os shorts de Betty Grable, com um cinto cor de salmão e aquela blusa linda que completa o conjunto – esta é provavelmente meu figurino favorito da lista.

Betty Grable’s short and blouse from “How to Marry a Millionaire” (1953):
Another fashion show, another must have: Betty Grable’s amazing shorts, with a salmon belt and that wonderful blouse – this is probably my favorite outfit from the whole list.
A maioria das roupas usadas por Audrey Hepburn:
Audrey também é um ícone de estilo que me inspira – embora eu não queira usar nada de Givenchy. Eu adoro a saia e blusa que ela usa durante sua aventura em “A Princesa e o Plebeu” (1953), mas eu gostaria mais se a saia fosse mais curta. Suas roupas em “Cinderela em Paris” (1957) e “Um Caminho para Dois” (1967) são lindas. E seu estilo do dia a dia também é inspirador: dê-me calças cigarrete, sapatilhas, blusas de gola alta ou camisas xadrez e eu serei uma menina estilosa e feliz!

Most of Audrey Hepburn’s clothes:
Audrey is also a style icon that inspires me – although I don’t want to dress any Givenchy. I love the skirt and blouse she wears during her adventure in “Roman Holiday” (1953), but I’d prefer a shorter skirt. Her clothes in “Funny Face” (1957) and “Two for the Road” (1967) are gorgeous. And her everyday style is also a must: give me cropped trousers, ballet flats, turtlenecks or plaid shirts and I’ll be a happy – and well-dressed – girl!

Wowee! Look at these outfits. I'm not quite the girly girl; more the sporty type. But I'd love to give it a go with Betty Grable's shorts and Audrey in those jeans. And dare I try dressing like Garbo if I land in the arms of handsome Nils Asther?

Thank you Lé for sharing your essay in my blogathon. They say "clothes make the man." Well they certainly make the woman as well. Thanks again!

This was such fun. We get to know you better, plus have the pleasure of enjoying these great movie fashions.

The clothes I love the most from movies are all more suited for taller gals. I want to dress for the inner me (Rosalind Russell) while the virtual me (Helen Hayes) is a small voice shouting from inside.

I can totally see you as a flapper.

The less clothes the better has been my motto, but I have to say I'm fascinated by the dress that Elsa Lanchester wears at the beginning of "The Bride of Frankenstein" (the early part, before she is actually turned into the bride...) It looks like it would be hell to dance in, it even looks like it would be hard to walk around in, but I like it.

I am with you 100% - a great post that is near and dear to my heart. Loved it!

What a fabulous topic and I love several of your choices including Betty Grable's short set. I keep a list of film costumes I love too, although mine are much less practical, because...well, a girl can dream, right?

Le, I always suspected you might be a fashionista, and this post proves it. You've got great taste, girl!

Fabulous blogathon choice. I feel like I've just had a satisfying round of online shopping. :)

I want to steal many outfits through the screen and just say = "Thanks and I may give it back- maybe not!" I certainly am inspired by what I see on screen and that's what I try to put together in my life- sadly its hard to do considering there's not many things out there to buy that do look retro and cool- its all about weird fads now!
