‘All I wanted was just what everybody else wants, you know, to be loved’

Rita's makeup was always impeccable. Perfectly thin brows (that was hot in the 1940s), Perfect lipstick application, and those bountiful, brushed out curls in her thick main. See how the lashes just add a boost to her face?
Sure she was a great actress, but you couldn't deny her gift of modeling. Up to this day, MANY pin-up models owe it to Rita for establishing cute & sexy pin-up style.
Rita Hayworth & Marlene Dietrich, Ladies of Hollywood Glam! The Skirt - Suit with a fur was so EN VOGUE at the time. Modest skirt length, but don't these ladies look like they OWN this SH*T? Love!
Rita as one of her most beloved characters, Gilda. You have to give credit to the designer who incorporated pleats into a floor length gown. This look is Everything.


Every Glam girl has a Tom Boy side! Rita did pants and button-downs verra well. Like a lady should, she knew how to dress for every occasion.
Classic. Remove the flowers and dramatic gloves and you're set for a walk through our modern town of today. Those gloves would work if you were hitting up a fashion show though.
