Today's Fashion and Film post is Les Girls (1957), a fabulous Gene Kelly musical set in Paris. Barry (Kelly) is an American performer in France with his three leading ladies-Joy (Mitzi Gaynor), Sybil (Kay Kendall) and Angele (Taina Elg). Years later, Sybil writes a tell all novel that portrays Angele in a bad light. A lawsuit ensues but who's version is correct? Sybil's? Angele's? Or perhaps a third version entirely? Told in flash backs during the trial, this film is full of singing and dancing and yummy costumes.
Evening gowns straight from Paris!
A period number. Love the hair!
A yummy black and white number!
Rehearsing a steamy number.
The casual wear and lounge wear in this film are great too!
I adore the opulent numbers in 50s musicals.
A skimpy (and pretty ridiculous) audition ensemble but don't miss the other two ladies in the back.
