Retro Revival: Jessica Chastain vs. Sophia Loren

sophiajessica

There is something so elegant and timeless about a black lace dress with a nude underlay. It is both sexy and ladylike at the same time. Today’s retro revival comes to you courtesy of Miss Sophia Loren and Miss Jessica Chastain, two lovely ladies clad in two very similar lacy frocks!

Jessica recently wore this amazing Oscar De La Renta Pre-Fall 2013 dress to the NYC premiere of the film “Mama”. While that movie looks way too scary for my taste, this stunning cocktail dress is absolutely my cup of tea! Paired with an extraordinary diamond collar by Harry Winston, she is pure vintage perfection! Such a classic retro look on a classically beautiful girl! 

Speaking of classically beautiful, I found this photo of screen siren Sophia Loren in an equally stunning black lace dress from the 1950’s. Sophia paired hers with a fabulous veiled hat and simple black heels. 

I personally adore both of these dresses, but I prefer the neckline of Jessica’s paired with the fuller flared a line skirt from Sophia’s. To me, that would be a perfect combination! As for the accessories  you can’t go wrong with Harry Winston or a magnificent veiled topper 😉

Which look do you Dolls prefer? 1950’s Sophia or contemporary Jessica? 

Until next time!

XOXO

  1. I too prefer Jessica Chastain’s dress, with more of the fuller skirt that Sophia has. One thing about Jessica’s dress I don’t like is how her neckline kind of “bows down” to her armpits, if you can see that. I would rather it would be either straight across or the always flattering sweetheart neckline. But you are so right – black lace with a nude underlay is just damn hot and damn sexy! When you wear something like that you just let everyone know that you’re a woman 🙂
