Film Noir Love

13 Oct

Halloween is just around the corner and I usually don’t dress up. But for some reason, this year…I want to! In the past, LA has the West Hollywood Halloween Parade and though I went twice, I didn’t really get into the spirit of things. Some people really pull out all the stops and make some head-turning costumes.

This time, I want a costume, but nothing too trashy, skanky, or slutty. Though I wish I could pull off the majority of the cute costumes that I find at the Halloween store, I think it’s best to save money and find something in my own closet.

After a round of flinging clothes and shoes in the air and all over my apartment, it looks like a tornado ripped through my place. But, I did find a satisfying outfit..a la 1940’s film noir. It’s classy yet seductive. Plus I get to wear red lipstick!

Even though I’m not a huge film noir buff, I do have to say that those screen sirens are smoldering hot!

Check out Veronica Lake and Gene Tierney!


I love Veronica Lake’s signature peek-a-boo hair! It seems so effortlessly sexy and yet, when I tried to do it on my own, it was quite a challenge. For Halloween, I’d love to have her hairstyle, but I might have to go to the salon to get it done.


Gene Tierney…so beautiful and sultry…I’m definitely going after her style and attitude. The loose flowing blouse, the come hither stare…she’s beautiful and dangerous in her film roles and that’s how the men like it! =P


And who can forget Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca? I know the movie isn’t in the film noir genre, but she looks so stunning…and the wardrobe! The famous trenchcoat and hat…it was a pair to die for!
