A Dorothy Lamour dress from The Fleet's In

Sold for US$ 892 inc. premium
A Dorothy Lamour dress from The Fleet's In
Paramount Pictures, 1942. Designed by Edith Head. Black satin long-sleeved dress with padded shoulders and a V-neck, with a black stitch design in the front of the skirt and a slit in the front center of the skirt, bearing an interior blue-lettered "Paramount" label inscribed, "Lamour," and a "Property of Paramount Pictures Corp. Ladies Wardrobe" interior stamp. The indentations from the pair of brooches that Lamour wore with this dress can still be seen on the neckline. This dress is a perfect example of 1940s fashion with its sleek sophistication so often seen in film noir films of the era. Lamour plays a nightclub singer with an icy reserve who becomes a challenge for William Holden. In the film, she pairs this dress with a feather boa. Accompanied by a photo of Lamour wearing the dress in a scene from the film.
