Fashion and Film: The Pirate
I adore Judy Garland and Gene Kelly (though the mustache does throw me a bit in this film). Manuela (Garland) is newly engaged to the mayor of a small Caribbean town but dreams of travel and adventure with the dread pirate Macoco. A traveling performer (Kelly) runs into her and falls in love. When he learns that Manuela's fiance is actually Macoco, he decides to pretend to be the pirate to win her love. The mayor must play along to keep his secret. Will Manuela choose the theatrical "Macoco" or the reformed mayor Macoco?
I'm not sure what period they were going for but I just adore the hats!
The wedding dress. Again with the poofy sleeves.
She does have some rather elaborate up dos but some of the less formal dos are very 40s. I love this coral color!
Another sort of crazy hair do. I love the veil though.
This dress is probably my favorite! Lace peaking out the bottom! Red yumminess! A giant hat! And a long stocking shaped snood!
