Hats From The Women (1939) Part 2

Click here for Part 1.
Partway through the movie The Women there is a 10 minute fashion show shot in Technicolor. It is a bizarre break from the story and something the director originally wanted to take out. But it is such an interesting capsule of fashion from the time, and really showcases the work that makes costume designer Adrian's name so iconic.

Love the painted silk lining. The hands give it a bizarrely surrealistic touch

Adrian also did the designs for Wizard of Oz this year. Notice a witch theme?

Great dimensionality in the bow.

Strange early use of plastic.
