The movie opens with Lorrie (Betty Grable) working in a canteen where all the waitresses wear super frilly aprons embroidered with cherries and trimmed with ric-rac, and cherry hairpieces.
She and her friend Kay catch the night train - cue adorable yellow all-in-one pyjama jumpsuit! I love the piping detail around the shaped neckline and sleeves.
Arriving in New York, the girls are dressed in super smart travel outfits - check out all that unusual detailing! I also love both girls' hats.
I'm a fan of the chocolate and powder blue colour scheme which was popular in the 40s, as worn by Martha Raye as Molly.
You think 80s shoulders were big? They really had nothing on mid-forties shoulders! Kays slate grey and red gingham outfit is another of my very favourites from the film. Lorrie's swish white swing coat covers a lacey cocktail dress.
A reminder of the amazing chartreuse outfit - more screenshots on my post about the apple fabric. Kay's chocolate brown dress with its scalloped button placket is also lovely, with its gathered shoulder yokes. The skirt has inverted pleats, but I couldn't get a good screengrab to show it.
Two marvellous green and black outfits. First, Molly in a stylish black moire taffeta jacket accented with green blouse, gloves and box purse - not to mention the huge hat with polka dot veil. Second, a dancer sports a green fishtail pleated green skirt with a black-and-white harlequin print jacket.
And now the third of my top three favourite outfits - the red suit. The whole matching set of jacket, blouse, clutch purse and hat all features zig-zag trim detailing in red and white candy stripe. Love!
