1995 Blonde Lace

In your very first Hollywood film, you want to establish a screen personality that makes you stand out, an image that people will carry with them long after they leave the theatre! One fabulous way to do just that is to appear in man-tailored clothing, which has an uncanny way of making a beautiful woman appear even more feminine and elegant than in a lavish gown. For Gene, the one costume that gives her genuine star quality is Blond Lace, a tuxedo she wears in her first small role as a hatcheck girl. Gene has only a few lines...but her radiant beauty, set off by the dashing black velvet beret and touches of ivory lace, make an unforgettable impression. As the credit scroll up at the end of the film, people strain to read the small print, looking for the name of the “unknown” starlet who played that stunning hat-check girl...and Gene is on her way to becoming a full-fledged star! Gene’s three-piece tuxedo is tailored of black crepe; the ivory halter-top has an attached jabot of extravagant lace. Matching lace appears at the cuffs of the jacket, and a “gardenia” pin on the lapel adds a dashing touch. And is that a gentleman’s cane she holds, as their eyes meet briefly, yet significantly, across the checkroom counter?
