Some Like It Hot is without a doubt one of my favorite films. It’s got 30’s fashion, it’s black & white, it has a hilarious love story, it’s got men in drag - dangerously handsome Tony Curtis and laugh-out-loud Jack Lemmon, and then comes the cherry (or should I say Sugar) on top; the delicious Marilyn Monroe.
The costumes in this film are divine, I really love 20’s/30’s glamour style and the work in some of the costumes are exquisite. I’m usually not very patient so for a change I would like to force myself to do some intricate beading on a full dress to conquer my impatience and tell myself I can do it. First things first to get the beads!
The back detail is without doubt my favorite part of this dress. I’m a real sucker for backless dresses anyway and this I think is just beautiful. It’s such a risqué dress for it’s time and alot of actresses then wouldn’t of dared wriggle into such a sexy number, but thank goodness our Marilyn did as she looks fab-u-LOUS!
Lot’s of black bugle beads are needed for this operation.
