Remember last week’s post about Madge and her 17th century dress in the contemporary setting of 1932’s White Zombie? Well, in my search for images, I also found this picture of Madge: Wowzers! Va Va Voom! Those are some curves! Now compare it to another, more characteristic, image of Madge: Yeah… Something havey cavey is going on there. There is some serious padding and sculpture going on in the first photo. This fits in perfectly with my post on the 1903 corset, and Lauren’s comment on all the padding in the Truly Victorian pattern. It takes a lot of engineering to go from ’20s sylph to Camille Clifford’s rival!
I wonder if any of these are touched up, or if she really was that shape? I love how these four are from the same photoshoot. The first one might also be from that photoshoot. The workmanship on the gowns is amazing. Just getting the dress to hug those curves that tightly is an impressive feat! Looking at all of these, is anyone else thinking that Christina Hendricks needs to do a Camille Clifford themed photoshoot? Vogue better credit me if they use that idea!
