I want all the clothes in Singing in the Rain

I want all the clothes in Singing in the Rain. They’re this wonderful early 50s take on 20s fashion (the film was released in 1952 but set in 1927). For instance:

As ever, click on the picture for a bigger version. Apologies for the quality of these images; I really did just take pictures of the TV using my phone. But you get the idea.

I want a harlequin dress!!I love the way they always have some ornament or band in their hair. I should start doing that more…I love the brooch at Debbie Reynolds’ waist here (also, that’s a little chiffon-y capelet thing around her shoulders, it sort of floated really nicely around her):Especially this one (she had a fantastic black cloak with emerald green lining too, but I couldn’t get a clear shot of it) — it’s so “Evil Queen from Snow White”-yI even want Gene Kelly’s outfit here (I’ve been looking for pants JUST LIKE THIS for riding my bike):

Now, I did lie when I said I wanted ALL the clothes from this film. While I find all of above clothing absolutely beautiful, there were a few outfits that certainly weren’t. For instance:

And this one’s just a bit too “Tony Curtis in Some Like it Hot” for me:

Are you going to a fancy dress party? Are old musicals the latest cosplay fad? Are you a hollywood producer wanting to make a remake (that’s my favourite)?

  2. In case you’re wondering, yes, I hit “like” on my own post. It was an accident. And there’s no way to unlike…

    I just saw “Singing in the Rain” for the first time this weekend when it was showing as part of a local concert in the park series. I loved all the clothing! So I thought I would google “dresses from singing in the rain” and it brought me here 🙂 The dresses in the movie are beautiful, classy and fun and I could imagine people wearing them out today. Now if I could only get my hands on some of those styles…
