Lady Gaga, Kaia Gerber… Why do stars swear by the Old Hollywood style on the red carpet?

Transparency, glitter and opulence, the definition of Hollywood glamour, as we know it.

Hollywood glamour, an iconic concept that we owe to Adrian, the costume designer who, until the late 1950s,

shaped the silhouette of Hollywood cinema. He invented Greta Garbo’s, all in sequins and transparency, but

also influenced the power dressing of the 1980s, by accentuating the shoulders “wide as John Wayne’s” of Joan

Crawford. Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, or Audrey Hepburn have also participated in the major influence of

the Old Hollywood style. Orange’ Adrian and Greta Garbo

Opening new horizons to American fashion, he revolutionized in a very short time the film costume in Hollywood

by advocating elegance with opulent dresses sublimating the body. A style that has become a real phenomenon in

recent years. It is now found on the red carpets of the most prestigious events dedicated to cinema, fashion or

music. The most obvious example is surely Lady Gaga who, when she participated in the promotion of the film House

of Gucci, in which she played the role of the black widow Patrizia Reggiani, relied on dresses as elegant as excessive.

The Old Hollywood creations mix the draping of infinite meters of fabric to the work of silk and organza, through

the bias cut …

For a result always extremely glamorous. Kaia Gerber, at the MET Gala 2021, was precisely the embodiment

of modern Hollywood glamour. The young model of 20 years attracted all eyes in a black corseted dress,

The magic of Hollywood glamour has been able to cross the years without ever taking a wrinkle. Lizzo, at

this year’s BET Awards, wore a custom Gucci dress in navy lurex with wide, flowing sleeves topped with a

black feather trim. The feather, such an intrinsic part of the Old Hollywood look. The neckline was the perfect

element to add the right amount of sexy. Boys’ Toddler Black/blue Violet Met/White Lizzo in Gucci

Although on the red carpet, the stars are becoming more and more creative and daring in all sorts of fashion

combinations;, Hollywood glamour, with long, lavish dresses, puffed sleeves and measured extravagance remains the most coveted

style .
