Thanks to Huey for the Inspiration for this post!
Ok so its clear to see that my dress is not an exact replica, i liked the strap design of the 'Never Gonna Dance' dress in Swingtime more than the strap design of the 'Smoke Gets In Your Eyes' Dress plus i didn't happen to have Bernard Newman to make it for me, but i thought i'd share these recent photos so you can compare instead the two dresses :) I had mine made by a dress maker for a not inconsiderable sum and its pure silk although Ginger's gleams better!
If you look carefully in the second picture it is just possible to see what book i am holding ;)
Thanks very much also to Arianna for the following link http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/exhibitions/exhibition-hollywood-costume/inside-the-exhibition/ if anyone is in the UK, i know i'm definitely going to make the effort to go and pay a visit, anything to see any of Ginger's costumes!!!
