Iconic film: Gilda (1946)

Si hay alguna película que convirtió a su actriz en un mito erótico, es Gilda. Dirigida en 1946 por Charles Vidor y protagonizada por Rita Hayworth  (Gilda) y Glenn Ford (Johnny Farrell), la película narra la historia de un tormentoso triángulo amoroso.

En su época, le película resultó un auténtico escándalo tanto por lo que representaba Gilda (una mujer extremadamente sensual , atractiva y libertina) como por el insinuante striptease que protagoniza  y que culmina con la bofetada más famosa de toda la historia del cine.

El francés Jean-Louis fue el encargado del diseño de los inolvidables vestidos de Rita Hayworth, algunos de los cuales se han convertido en auténticos iconos de la moda (por ejemplo el vestido negro de satén que lleva cuando canta Put the blame on Mame en la escena del striptease).

Un clásico para ver una y otra vez…¡Aprovechar y disfrutarlo el fin de semana chicas!

If there is a film that converted its star in an erotic myth, that’s Gilda. Directed by Charles Vidor in 1946 and starred by Rita Hayworth (Gilda) and Glenn Ford (Johnny Farrell) it tells the story of a stormy love triangle.

At that time, the film was outrageous not only for what Gilda represented (an extremely sensual, attractive an libertine woman) but also for the glove striptease that finished with the most famous slap in the film history.  

The French born Jean Louis was the designer of the unforgettable gowns Rita wore, some of which have became timeless fashion icons (like the black satin strapless dress she wears when she sings Put the blame on Mame during the  striptease scene).

A classic to see time and again… Enjoy it during the weekend ladies!

Sensuality was her...

Wasn't she perfect??

Grecian inspired look...
