style icon: rita hayworth

isn't she just perfect? i'm not bold enough to wear red lipstick like this, but i'm infatuated by women who are. last weekend i watched rita hayworth and gene kelly in the 1944 film, cover girl, and can't stop fantacizing about pulling out my hot rollers, finding a tube of red lipstick, and perching the most fantastic hat i can find over my left eyebrow. the good news is that boone has been searching for a '40s style three piece suit for months, so at least BOTH of us would look like we got trapped in a time warp. who's with us?

plus, the wedding scene is pretty dramatic... i'm not wild about ms. hayworth's ensemble here, but the bridesmaid outfit looks so chic.
