Fifties Fashion

Tuesday, April 5

With Wuthering Heights closing the Minnesota Opera's 2010 - 2011 season this month, the theme at the next Opera Night Out cast party is all about 1950s Hollywood glamour.  So what does that mean in terms of fashion?  Think Christian Dior, petticoats, furs, and style icons Grace Kelly and Gregory Peck.

But what about the hairstyles, you ask?  Ladies, think soft curls, romantic, stylish and natural, but we mustn't forget about the ultimate 1950s updo, the beehive.  As for the gents, think very sharp and extremely styled with loads of styling creams so there isn't a hair out of place, i.e., Cary Grant.
