“At a young age I became enamored of films such as Blonde Venus, The Tarnished Lady, and Dangerous Curves and the scandalous glamour goddesses of the Pre-Code silver screen, such as Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck and Tallulah Bankhead and their independent strength, their embrace of feminine sensuality and their sexually frank libertine spirit”, said Sue Wong, who cites these iconic screen legends as the inspiration for her Spring 2011 Collection.
If there was any other era (well, besides the 1970s) that I thought I should’ve grown up in, it would definitely be the 1920s/early 1930s. Flapper gowns, smokey eyes, bathtub moonshine and living dangerously—but glamorously–definitely would’ve been my thing. Thanks to all the fabulous spring beauty trends (throwback glam hair, smokey eyes and red/coral lips) and now, thanks to Sue Wong’s 20s and 30s infused collection, I can live the era in the modern day.
The newest additions to the spring collection ooze glamor, from ruffles, frills, applique (you know I have an applique addiction), feathers and as always– Sue Wong’s amazing and famous beading.
I even also think that my future wedding gown was among the collection (I’m hoping that if I ever get married sometime this century, the dress will still be made…nudge nudge)
