GlamAmor Posted by on Mar 26, 2012

When we're talking about Style in the Movies and Deco design, one of the most iconic actresses has got to be Louise Brooks.  She is truly the one who started it all in modern hair.  Her hairstyle--the bob, as it became known--was an enormous trend during the 1920s.  Known for its chee read more

GlamAmor Posted by on Mar 25, 2012

As I've been discussing during my Month (or so) of Art Deco, the era that stretched from the flappers of the 1920s through the sophisticated 1930s has been all the rage in fashion.  And don't expect it to end any time soon...though the inspiration has largely come from current movies such as Ac read more

Cinema Style File--The Art (Deco) of Comedy in 1936's MY MAN GODFREY

GlamAmor Posted by on Mar 21, 2012

Gregory La Cava's 1936 classic comedy My Man Godfrey is a movie I first caught on cable years ago in the middle of the night.  The aged and slightly faded film flickering in the darkness on some obscure channel did not dim its appeal.  In fact, I only remember how captivated I was from its read more

The 1920s and 1930s have been all the rage this season as we've seen in collections from Ralph Lauren and others I will continue to share on GlamAmor.  Trends in hair styles are no exception and almost always follow whatever fashion comes down the designer runways.  Bright blonde, fingerwa read more

The Style Essentials--Jean Harlow Draped in Deco Decadence in 1933's DINNER AT EIGHT

GlamAmor Posted by on Mar 5, 2012

In doing a Month (or so) of Art Deco, I would be remiss if I did not include George Cukor's 1933 classic Dinner at Eight.  It is an iconic moment for both film and fashion...one of those rare occasions in which a great star is put into the hands of an equally great costume designer.  In th read more

Cinema Connection--Old Hollywood and Art Deco Style Stand Out at 2012 Oscars

GlamAmor Posted by on Feb 27, 2012

Is this 2012...or the 1930s?  It's certainly hard to tell just by looking at the cast of The Artist (above) as they accepted their well-deserved Academy Award for Best Picture. It was a great moment and you can see how they embody the modern version of Art Deco style that their movie has ins read more

GlamAmor Posted by on Feb 24, 2012

The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) is Woody Allen's favorite film of all that he's written and directed.  Surprised?  It may be considering his incredible canon of work, but not when you understand the reasons.  For one, it came out nearly exactly as he envisioned it, which was a differe read more

Not only is Art Deco style a theme at this year's TCM Classic Film Festival, but it is a huge trend right now in fashion for Spring 2012.  I will share many examples throughout the month, but knew that these Ralph Lauren designs from the pages of Vogue would need to be first.  After all, I read more
