"OH, YOU BEAUTIFUL DOLL" Joan Crawford


Joan Crawford was one of the best-dressed film actresses of all time. She was muse to great photographers like George Hurrell as well as to brilliant MGM designer, Adrian.

Joan, like many other glamorous stars of the 1930s and 1940s inspired Paper Dolls, one of film, fashion & frivolity's favourite things:
 
 
Bra, step-ins and corselette--lingerie of the era
 
 
 
 The movie that each outfit is taken from is written at the side of the garment.

From beach to boudoir
