Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Lauren Bacall – not only a list of the sexiest women of all time, but also the ensemble cast of Jean Negulesco’s 1953 romantic comedy – ‘How to Marry a Millionaire’, the subject of this week’s Fashion Film Friday.
The film follows the love lives of three loveable gold-digging housemates Schatze Page (Bacall), Loco Dempsey (Grable), and Pola Debevoise (Monroe). Working as models in the showroom of a department store, they may not have husbands – but they do have 1950s wardrobes any self-respecting vintage collector would give their right arm for.
Needless to say – everyone falls in love and gets the man they deserve in the end. Perhaps not with as much disposable income as they’d like originally hoped for – but who cares when you have an amazing wardrobe!
