Costume Cutie: Betty Grable

Betty Grable was the consummate pin-up. I read once that her legs were insured by Lloyds of London for a million dollars each – and that was back when a millionnaires were few and far between and there were no billionaires. Ingenue has a delightful Betty Grable costume with the suit from the famous pin-up and also that same animation. Now, what woman could resist being the world’s most famous pin-up, even if only for an evening?

With the suit, I am wearing one of Ingenue’s wonderful hairstyle Sweet Rosie O’Grady which is the hairstyle worn by Rosie the Riveter, however, it works for Betty in this outfit.

I wore Flirt’s Pearls of Wisdom and please take a minute to appreciate the wonderful way they have made the pearls fit and flow over the necks and shoulders. Yummmy!

    Indeed; not a bad likeness. (And no, I’m not old enough to remember the original photograph — though my father would have; he would have been 90 last year.)
