Cine y moda años 50; Fashion & films from the 50's

Powerful (and weepy) melodramas. The last classic musicals before the renovation, death and change they will suffer in 60's. Cold war and Sc Fi don't interest us as Fashion proposals. 
Americans in Italy, Americans in France, Americans everywhere, even in the Deep South of Tennessee William's world. 
Europe exported Italian well breed women: Sophia Loren, Silvana Mangano, Silvana Pampanini, Gina Lollobrigida, Marisa Allasio, Claudia Cardinale. But they are in another chapter. 
Five legends resume the decade: Marilyn, Audrey, Grace, Liz Taylor and Brigitte Bardot.

inmortal Elizabeth Taylor

Marilyn Monroe

Some films you must watch 

Kim Novak beauty and young caught a generation of teenagers, specially in Spain, after watching her in Picnic, Pal Joey or Vertigo.

The time when legend was born. Saint Audrey Hepburn

The time of the brief but intense career of another legend, Princess Grace of Monaco.

Jeanne Moreau did hit the screens with Les amants and Ascenseur pour L'Echafaud. She marked highbrow audiences for good. 

Doris Day and Rock Hudson started in 1959 with Pillow Talk and they continue their chic classic 50's until mid 60's (as we can see in Mad Men, for instance) 

Two masterpieces, the first is eclipsed by the famous Marty. The second is the best Minnelli's musical.

Leslie Caron's style
