Scarlett, Miss Scarlett!

Never before has a character or film imbued the public with such iconic southern charm and grandeur.  Little Miss Scarlett O’Hara in the film adaptation of ‘Gone with the Wind’ practically defined the Golden Age and Hollywood’s most glamorous era.  Back when films were shown on a single silver screen and the theatergoers, dressed in their best, sat anxiously awaiting the only evening show in plush red velvet chairs.  Back when films were 3 hours and 40 minutes long and champagne was served at intermission.  Back when movie tickets were lined in gold and coat check stored your favorite mink stole.  Vivien Leigh’s coiffed dark locks, wine red lips, and fluttery gowns literally brought the city of Atlanta three days of festivities centered around the film’s premiere.  Southern belle gowns now hold a nostalgic place in our hearts, making us practically die in reverie of the sensual innocence of tightly-fitting bodices and ruffle upon ruffled skirts; bare shoulders and parasols tempting the Georgian sun with all of their dreamy softness.

Take a look at Scarlett’s gowns, reminisce in a time where one could never be overdressed, and know that frankly, my dear, your protagonist does give a damn.
