Now and Then

I forgot to mention that while watching Brides the other night, Mr. BTEG and I tried to point out to the Dancer how the singing and dancing was just as good (if not better) as in the musicals she knows, such as High School Musical and Cheetah Girls: One World. We all noticed a lot of ballet influence, but then Jacques d'Amboise, who played Ephraim Pontipee, was borrowed from the New York City Ballet. The Dancer was not impressed with Jane Powell's coloratura performance in "Wonderful Day", even though we tried to explain to her how difficult it actually was. It was fun to watch the movie with her.

I love watching the old movies for the dancing, yes. But what I really love are seeing the absolutely gorgeous, classy dresses on lovely women who would be considered "plus size" models by today's fashion standards. ::rolls eyes::

Proves that well-tailored clothes make everyone look good, and the reason models today have to look like concentration camp victims is because the styling and tailoring stink on ice!
