Cinema Style: White Christmas (Take Two!)

Monday, December 7, 2015

White Christmas is my all-time favorite Christmas film, so it has been reviewed before and even been the subject of Cinema Style before too. But that previous post was more focussed on each of the two sisters' specific styles, and this time I wanted to focus on two of my favorite outfits for Rosemary Clooney.

Pajama Set, Smoking Slippers, Robe
One of the sweetest, most romantic moments (even while singing something that is in no way a love song) comes while Rosemary Clooney's character, Betty, is in her Pajamas! Its no hanky-pank moment; rather she's worried and can't sleep and Bing Crosby's character gives her some good advice in the form of his crooning song. She calls him her white knight and its adorable... just like you'd look so adorable dressed in button down pajamas like Betty's when opening presents on Christmas Day. I've added a robe; I think Betty actually is wearing a coat in the movie because she goes from her cabin, and has to walk outside to get to her lodge, but I included a white robe instead. I've also got some smoking slippers included, in case you too need to step outside on Christmas Day before you're fully dressed. The lamp and pillow would make any room cozy, but also serve as inside jokes to the scene in which Rosemary Clooney wears this costume- a White Knight and reminder to Count your Blessings.

Shoes, Dress, Earrings (Similar but more affordable here), Gloves

On the opposite end of the spectrum is Rosemary Clooney's jaw-droppingly stunning evening gown she dons for her new solo job singing at a club. And sure, it is unlikely you too will get a job singing at a night club, but this gown is perfect for all those Christmas parties and Christmas Balls and New Year Eve dances that are right around the corner! The gown accentuates every curve yet brings focus to her face. The character Betty adds only simple diamond earrings and a pair of gloves to the dress. You can add these black heels too; they are basic but classy and allows focus to remain on the mermaid cut of the gown.


  1. I love these looks! They are perfect for Rosemary Clooney's character :)
