The elegant 30s inspired this draped-style gown. The bias-cut of the fabric causes the gown to fall gently around the curves of the form. The position of the belted waist is a feature from the 30s that represents the return of femininity after the boyish styles of the decade before. I think the 30s were important in establishing the Hollywood glamor that we still associate with movie stars.
