1940's Fashion on Film - Moon Over Miami

Even if you're not into musical comedies, Betty Grable and the amazing fashion in this film make it worth watching! Made in 1941, "Moon Over Miami" captures the fun and glamour of early 1940's fashion. It would have been a great distraction from thinking about WWII. Betty Grable and Carole Landis start off as singing waitresses in cute cowgirl costumes. They then move on to find rich men at a Miami resort, where they showcase an endless selection of beautiful 1940's dresses. My favorite is the white dress Betty wears with the butterfly designs. Gorgeous.
