WINGS – 1927

The 1927 film Wings was the first and only silent film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Buddy Rogers and Richard Arlen star in the film, playing two combat pilots who vie for the affection of the same woman (Clara Bow). That’s the storyline. But neither, as writer Kevin Sessums writes, “shows as much love for her … as they do for each other.”

An Intriguing Summer Look

Donna-Summer-cutout

 Donna Summer to be exact.

Would you say that’s draped or simply tied on? No zipper, no buttons, hmmm  just tied at the belly button, huh? I wonder what that looks like on a hanger? – not much I bet. It’s sort of a full plunging ultra high-cut disco diaper with a center-front dangly bit, really. What if she had to pee during intermission? Does it just fling itself off with a “boing” like a rubber band? I think we all would agree on one thing about this garment so let’s face it –  it takes a Full Brazilian. What’s that thing made of anyway?…must be Quiana or some type of Quiana related stretch fabric brought to us from 3M. It could even be a viscose knit, right? Can I just ask one thing about this costume of Donna’s? – Is it tape?

Well, no matter what you call it or how you put it on or take it off, it sure looks amazing with matching bracelets. Good call, mystery disco stylist of yesteryear.

Speculations on the shoe anyone? Let’s discuss:
